The Cattail Creek Golf Course is a 6644 yard, 18-hole layout. Although not a long course, Members are drawn to play here time and time again to attempt to master the fast and undulating greens that carry a degree of notoriety among those who have had the pleasure of playing.
The Course is unique and desirable when compared against public courses, resort courses and even many other private courses because of the skill required in hitting well-calculated and targeted shots. The picturesque scenery takes golfers through magnificent rock walls, wooded areas, and open areas lined with trees and ponds. Ask any longtime Member about the Course and they will tell you that it constantly keeps them intrigued by providing new challenges even many years after making Cattail one’s home course.
Chris Harriman, Golf Course Superintendent, and his Green Department Crew, have spent the past few years working towards various Audubon Certifications for the Course. Cattail Creek Country Club has received certification in Environmental Planning from the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP), an international program administered by Audubon International designed to help landowners preserve and enhance the environmental quality of their property. Our staff look forward to one day achieving designation as a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.

The Learning Center at Cattail Creek
This indoor instructional facility, completed in the Summer of 2012, allows golfers to take year-round lessons from PGA Director of Instruction, Ricky Serrano. In addition to being an outlet for teaching and hitting, the building features state-of-the-art club fitting equipment, golf swing video analysis, a golf simulator, and much more that can be used to hone your golfing skills all year long, regardless of weather.

Cattail Creek is dedicated to investing in the development of its Junior Golfers. Clinics, camps, lessons and leagues begin at a very young age for boys and girls, and children can be found on the range and course at almost all times, learning by observing their parents play. Once reaching age 10 and passing a certification, Juniors may play alone or with other Member friends.
Every year, the Club watches Juniors who have grown up at the Club, participate competitively in national junior tournaments, play for their high school teams and earn college golf scholarships. Most recently, Bennett Buch, finished with a two-day, 4-under-par 138 at the Maryland State High School Golf Championships!
