With no fancy pro shop and no rigid tee times, Millwood Country Club promises a casual, yet thoroughly satisfying experience for the golf enthusiast. The club's nine-hole course is relatively short at roughly 2,600 yards from the men’s tees and a little over 2,100 yards from the women’s tees. Our course is immaculately kept, stunningly beautiful, and filled with challenges.
Tight greens and plenty of demanding traps put a premium on your short game. The first and sixth holes reward long hitters. The par-three fourth and eighth can be holes without pity if your tee shot misses the green. Throughout the course, the undulating, natural terrain presents an infinite variety of side-hill lies. And while Spout Run, which protects the sixth and ninth greens, is no raging river, it does gobble up more than its share of approach shots.
The course is also versatile. Multiple tee boxes vary both the distance and the angles enough that playing a “back nine” can be a much different experience than playing the front nine.
As with other club activities, casual is the rule on MCC's golf course, and the honor system applies. Members sign in themselves and their guests. You may take a cart or walk your own way around. And if, by chance, a member's game could use improvement, our golf pros are readily available by contacting our clubhouse manager.
Members enjoy numerous golf events throughout the year. Memorial, Independence, and Labor Day tournaments, Member/Guest and Member/Member tournaments, a Juniors' tournament, the Mayo Cup, and the Gilpin Plate provide ample opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled day of golf competition. Traditional holiday golf tournaments run concurrently with tennis tournaments and pool-play for families, followed by refreshments and a cookout on the club's expansive porch.
Ladies' Golf on Thursday mornings and Men's Monday Evening Golf (more fondly known as "The Manly Men of Millwood Maul the Ball on Mondays") are popular, casual golf outings. MCC golf pros also offer a Youth Golf Camp each summer.
