The course stretches over 6,911 yards and offers breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. The designers of this Deep Creek Lake golf course skillfully incorporated the mountain’s natural contours into its design, building it at the base of the ski slopes. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced golfer, the Wisp Resort Golf Course will be an enjoyable experience.
  3. Thousand Acres Golf Course: This magnificent 18-hole championship course designed by Craig Schreiner is one of the best Deep Creek golf courses. This course has been built to preserve and enhance the natural environment while also providing exceptional golfing conditions. Located in the scenic town of Swanton, Thousand Acres offers a unique and exciting experience with distinct terrains on both the front and back nine holes. The Appalachian Mountains provide a breathtaking backdrop and golf enthusiasts can enjoy the stunning view of Deep Creek Lake from the course.
  4. Oakland Golf Club: If you’re looking for a golf course near Deep Creek Lake, you’ll love the Oakland Course. It’s just a few minutes from the lake and covers 6,395 yards of rolling terrain. This championship course is highly regarded and often called one of the best-kept secrets in the area. It’s suitable for players of all skill levels, whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting. The Golf Club at Oakland also has a driving range, putting green, and a Club House Restaurant. The restaurant also has a Patio Bar where you can watch big-screen TVs or listen to music.
