Long Marsh Golf Club
20 White Marsh Road
Long Marsh Golf Club which is part of the Lemon Bay was designed by architect Ted McAnlis.
The eighteen hole course is approximately 300 acres with a rolling terrain, which hints at a links-type layout. The fairways are generous and the greens putt fairly fast but true, depending on the golfer, of course. This is where my husband tends to play and it is located about 5 minutes drive from our home.
The Pinemoor West Golf Club is also affiliated to Long Marsh and is a 9 hole course. It is one of the newer courses on Rotonda West opened in late 2004.
