Though the course is not as good as Mount Pleasant, Clifton Park (formerly the site of Johns Hopkins’ summer mansion) is a favorite because it provides some amazing views of the city, particularly as you play back to the clubhouse.
Challenges here include some unforgiving out-of-bounds—and the occasional city resident who stops on a walk past the course to provide blunt criticism of your game.
