PB Dye Golf Club

PB Dye Golf Club is the only course in Maryland to feature Penn G-2 bent grass greens. One of the newer seed varieties, G-2 is also used at the Pinehurst No. 2 course. Throughout the course, closely mowed collection areas and the large greens replicate conditions seen on the PGA TOUR. The fairways are large, rolling, and well-guarded by bunkers. PB Dye Golf Club offers over 40 acres of closely cut fairways, making for a firm playing surface where big drives are the norm.
