  • "Phyllis & I had a great time Saturday night. And, from what I heard and observed, so did everyone else. You & your staff made it a night to want to repeat. Please thank them all for a wonderful night out.

    The golf course is in fine shape, the food was delicious (we shared the Salmon & Filet entrees - compliments to Chef Patrick), pricing was appropriate, the service was courteous & quick, and the music was nice. It's obvious that you all worked very hard to treat us to a pleasant night and you succeeded."

    Thanks to all,
    Jim & Phyllis Geary
    Annual Passholders since 2003

  • "Our kids have been enjoying the Challedon Junior Camp for several years. It is such a great experience that combines learning with lots of fun. The kids learn skills, etiquette, course maintenance and more. Plus, the staff makes learning fun by playing games, holding contests, and, of course, giving the occasional golf cart ride. The camp even serves a great lunch. We love the camp and are so glad to have such a wonderful camp so close by!"

    Paul and Carrie Boyce

  • “Our boys recently completed the Challedon Advanced Junior Golf Camp and had a blast. The staff, facilities, and instruction are above and beyond anything we have experienced before in regards to junior camps. I would highly recommend this camp if your kids are looking to take their game to the next level.”

The Course

"As you walk down the fairway of life you must smell the roses, for you only get to play one round."
Ben Hogan
cha ex challedonhorsepreaknessNamed 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 challenges golfers of all abilities.

A Look into the Yardage Book

  • Hole 1 - Par 5

    The ideal tee shot should be played right of the fairway bunker to set the hole up properly. A precise approach shot is needed on this undulating putting green.
  • Hole 2 - Par 4

    A well hit drive off of this spectacular elevated tee will leave a mid-iron approach to this well guarded green.
  • Hole 3 - Par 5

    The safe play off of the tee is a long iron or fairway wood to avoid the pond. The approach shot must be precise into this well protected green.
  • Hole 4 - Par 4

    A well placed drive down the right side is a must to have a clear shot to the green. Beware of the deep bunker to the right of the green.
  • Hole 5 - Par 3

    Be sure to select the proper club from the elevated tee on this short, but dangerous, par 3.
  • Hole 6 - Par 4

    With out of bounds to the right, and a hazard to the left, an accurate drive is a must to reach this elevated fairway. An errant tee short will almost guarantee an above par score.
  • Hole 7 - Par 3

    This green is 2 to 3 clubs deep. Be sure to take into account the hole location before selecting your club.
  • Hole 8 - Par 4

    A well placed drive well set you up nicely on this picturesque par 4. The elevated green may require more club on your approach.
  • Hole 9 - Par 4

    A Driver is not always needed on this short par 4. A well played second shot will leave you with a birdie opportunity.
  • Hole 10 - Par 5

    Two well struck shots will put you in position for a short iron approach on this long and rolling par 5.
  • Hole 11 - Par 4

    A precise tee shot with a long iron or fairway wood is the safe play on this short par 4.
  • Hole 12 - Par 3

    The double tiered green requires an accurate club selection off the tee.
  • Hole 13 - Par 4

    Players must avoid going long and right of the green on their approach shot on this scenic, uphill par 4.
  • Hole 14 - Par 3

    A beautiful long par 3 that requires an accurate tee shot on this very large , sloping putting green.
  • Hole 15 - Par 4

    Off the tee, players must avoid the overhanging trees on the right and the left fairway bunker to set up a mid to long iron approach to this challenging green.
  • Hole 16 - Par 4

    The tee shot must reach the plateaued landing area to see the green on the approach. Beware of the three pot bunkers in the fairway short and left of the green.
  • Hole 17 - Par 5

    A well struck drive provides the opportunity for getting home on this par 5 in two. If necessary, lay up short and left to provide the best angle to the flagstick.
  • Hole 18 - Par 4

    A drive down the middle with driver or a fairway wood will set up a mid-iron approach on this tight finishing hole.
