LAKES COURSE – HOLE 14

Handicap: Men’s 4 | Women’s 4

When standing on the tee of this dogleg left, a player is faced with negotiating a penalty area that runs the entire left side of the hole and a large lake on the right side.

A slight draw is preferred off this tee and will leave you with an uphill shot to this green.

Be sure to add an extra club to your calculation as you can’t feel the breeze from the Chester River up by the green.

Two large sand traps guard the entrance to this green and anything long will be a lost ball.

PRO TIP

A slight draw is the best play on this hole but any tee shot in the fairway leaves you with a straight uphill shot to the green.

Be sure to add an extra club to your calculation as you can’t feel the breeze from the Chester River up by the green.

The green slopes severely from front to back so make sure you stay below the hole.

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Queenstown Harbor is home to many species of trees that line the fairways, wrap around the shorelines, and provide deep pockets of protected forest. You’ll notice a variety of tree groupings as you play both courses – often consisting of pines, oaks, maples, dogwoods and evergreens.

The fairways at Queenstown Harbor are a beautiful Patriot Bermuda grass. The greens are a type of turf grass called bentgrass. Bentgrass consists of very thin blades of grass densely packed together that offers a smooth surface for a perfect putt. Bentgrass is a popular choice for golf courses in the area and even the choice at Augusta National.

In addition, Queenstown Harbor has a wide variety of native grasses that grow around Queenstown Harbor. Along the shorelines you’ll find wetlands with a variety of Chesapeake Bay vegetation. The inland are freshwater lakes offer a new variety of native plants.

WILDLIFE HABITATS

Each and every day, a wide variety of wildlife can be found on the golf courses. These animals find refuge in the waters, trees, and woods that surround the property – and we are committed to preserving these habitats.

One of Queenstown Harbor’s most popular inhabitants is the whitetail deer. While out golfing, you’ll often spot these deer huddled in small groups, walking across fairways, or grazing along the wood lines.

The most notable bird overhead is the osprey that arrives in mid-March after completing a long flight from South America. They return to South America by mid-October and will return to the Chesapeake Bay (often to the same exact nests) to start families and fish from the abundant waters.

Bald eagles grace us with their presence regularly and blue herons are often spotted along the shorelines both on the river and lakes courses.  They will quietly hunt the inland lakes and coastal shorelines.
