The 12th hole will give the player a decision to make.
The aggressive player may choose to drive this green but be sure of the wind. If the flag on the green is blowing at you, lay up!
For most players, a layup off the tee will still leave a wedge in your hand to knock it close.
The pond on the right is closer to the right side of the fairway than it appears.
The green is angled away from you on your approach shot.
A sand trap short left and long right will swallow up any errant shots.
You’re faced with a decision on this tee shot and depending on how aggressive you want to be, you may just end up on the green of this par 4.
For the rest of us mere mortals, you’re left with a short iron or wedge to the green after you avoid the hazard to the right with your tee shot.
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.
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.
