Rocky Point Golf Course

One of the most beautiful courses that the Free State has to offer is Rocky Point Golf Course on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. This long standing stalwart of the Baltimore County Golf five course contingent, Rocky Point provides outstanding golf value.

Don’t be fooled by the 6683-yard length. Positioned at sea level, Rocky Point plays much longer around a varying array of water hazards. The front nine lies relatively flat and open while the back nine features abundant elevation changes, tree-lined fairways, and stunning views of the Chesapeake.

Rated 4 stars by Golf Digest, Rocky Point makes a terrific daily fee venue and an ideal location for your next golf outing with their outdoor waterproof pavilion that overlooks the bay. It is located on Back River Road in Essex just 15 minutes off Exit 36 of the Baltimore Beltway.
