About Us

Our Course

Fore Sisters Golf Course & Clubhouse, redesigned and re-opened on April 1, 2000, is available to all players; young, old, new to the game and seasoned. Our staff is ready to welcome all and make the day unforgettable.

Nestled within 300+ acres of hardwood and evergreen forests of Western Maryland’s Allegheny Mountains, offering unparalleled vistas and exceptional hospitality, this destination course is one of Maryland’s best-kept secrets!  The stunning mountainside 18-hole public golf course offers quiet ambiance amid pastoral settings. Friendly white tail deer, wild turkeys, and a variety of birds make the course their home. Every hole offers beautiful views of the untouched Maryland Mountains and breathtaking ponds with colorful Koi fish, majestic fountains. Old growth trees dot the course.

The par 71 course has a slope rating of 124 with an index of 66.8.  Tee times are available up to two weeks in advance and walk-ons are always welcome. However, it is best to check the schedule with our friendly staff, for tournaments are often held between April thru October. The course is open, weather permitting, March thru November.

Our Environment

Fore Sisters is carved out of a heavily wooded mountainside with dramatic elevation changes. Large stands of native red and white oak trees, shag-bark hickory, and wild dogwoods flank the rolling fairways. The owners have a deep respect for environmental stewardship and exciting plans to introduce new species to the course. We’ve consulted Dr. Michael Dirr, the renowned horticulturist, author and expert on woody plants for suggestions on our future planting. Additionally, we’ve talked with the US Botanic Garden in Washington D.C., the American Chestnut Foundation, and the Penn State University Forestry School for guidance when replanting greens and fairways.

The American chestnut tree, which was forced into extinction more than 100 years ago due to blight, is being resurrected by scientists. Fore Sisters is helping to restore this native tree by planting blight-resistant chestnuts on the golf course as soon as they are available.

It is our long term hope that the course will contain a collection of noble trees and shrubs. A golf Arboretum.
