Signal View was an awesome nine, but only a decent eighteen, i.e. the additional holes are inferior to the original holes.
And while Rockland is quite good, I think most will find Freedom Center to be even better.

Thanks, I got that impression from reading reviews. Are the original 9 holes still part of the course, and if so, do you know which holes are original?

Oh I absolutely expect you are right, and I can't wait to play Freedom Center.

I'm just trying to bag some new courses efficiently. Freedom Center, Hayco, and Franklin Park would make a nice, compact day trip from Frederick so I prefer to find a weekend day when all three are available (Hayco is closed Saturday per the FB page).

Thanks again for taking the time to respond!

Franklin can be a pretty quick course to play. I have hay I and Clark’s run on my list to play as well. Don’t forget to hit spelunkers cavern burgers next time you play rockland, that place is legit!

Thanks for the tips! Spelunkers sounds great, especially if I am travelling with the dog (drive-through).

I also noticed a place called Shaffer's BBQ & Market in Middletown. Anyone know if this is any good? I love trying local BBQ places.

Not better than blues, but pretty good if I recall

Some time this year there will be one more top notch course in that area. Think a slightly smaller Hawk Hollow. Can't divulge exact location just yet.

...and second the Spelunkers recommendation. I also had a great gyro in Front Royal some years back but can't recall the name of the spot.

Biscoe you tease.

Smaller Hawk Hollow closer to home sounds fan-freaking-tastic. Can't wait to hear more when you are allowed to divulge.

A lunch break at Spelunkers is on the agenda for today, along with Sherando, Rockland, and maybe Signal View. Next good weekend forecast and I'll contact the LoCo folks about Freedom Center.

And, of course, I would love to hear updates about Freedom Center.

Thanks all!

Hayco is private, so you'll need to check when it is open.
Hayco's holes primarily break into two categories:
  • long, open, with ob lurking about
  • short, tight, with mostly small trees creating small windows
Most holes will make you deal with some type of mild-to-moderate elevation change.
And don't hit a horse!

Thanks! I played Sherando and Rockland but ran out of daylight before Signal View. Have to hit that another time.

Rockland was a blast and the recommendations for Spelunker's were spot on. Had a Cave Burger and vanilla custard with hot fudge. I'm not even a burger guy, but that was fantastic.

So far Rockland and Jim Barnett are my two favorites in that area.

I appreciate the description of Hayco. The reviews posted so far talk more about ambience than specifics, so it is nice to get a better feel for what the course will be like. I will keep an eye on the Hayco FB page and the weather to plan a trip there.

But I really want to play Freedom Center.
