"As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round."
Ben Hogan

Named after the Maryland-bred horse that won the 1939 Preakness, The Links at Challedon is among the area's best courses. Our par-72 Brian Ault design includes large undulating greens with water in play on six of 18 holes. Our scenic course is fun and challenging for golfers of all abilities.
