Clustered Spires offers an open and affordable golf course for Frederick residents. 

For the club pro to the weekend duffer, Frederick County has a mix of golf courses available for different levels of skill and interest.

With courses scattered around the county, it's easy to get a round in and still have time to enjoy Frederick's breweries, distilleries, and other activities.

Named for the variety of church steeples in downtown Frederick, the city's Clustered Spires Golf Course offers 185 acres of course along the Monocacy River just 2 miles from downtown Frederick.

Established in 1991 as the first public course in the county, the course also offers a driving range with multiple target greens, and practice greens for putting, as well as chipping and putting.

Outside of Frederick, the Richland Golf Club in Middletown has a course wrapping through a neighborhood in the scenic Middletown Valley.

Just over Braddock Mountain from Frederick, the course offers pretty views, as well as The Valley Sports Grille, a bar and restaurant that can serve as either a 19th hole or a spot to grab a quick bite before or after your round.

In nearby Myersville, Musket Ridge Golf Club lets golfers shoot a hilly round on a course designed by Joe Lee, the designer of courses including Doral and LaCosta.

With the touch of a smart phone, golfers can even have food delivered on the course from Musket Ridge's restaurant, Lock, Stock, and Barrel.

In southern Frederick County's Ijamsville, Whiskey Creek Golf Club features a course designed with the consultation of former U.S. Open champion Ernie Els, as well as fabulous views and challenging play.

Along with these, Frederick County offers several other courses that will challenge players of any skill level, or just provide a fun and relaxing weekend round with friends.

No matter where you choose to tee off, Frederick County golf courses mean you'll never need a mulligan.
