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.

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.
