RIVER COURSE – HOLE 8

Handicap: Men’s 9 | Women’s 9

This par 3 is the longest on the golf course.

Playing slightly uphill and into the prevailing wind, a well struck mid to long iron shot is necessary.

With a sand trap to the left of the green and 2 short right of the green, playing to the center of the green is your best chance to two-putt and secure your par.

PRO TIP

This par 3 plays slightly uphill and is protected by a bunker on the left and two short and right of the green.

A mid to long iron played into the center of this green with a two-putt par is all you want to do here.

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.
