Golf Course News

Please be advised that St. Lo Drive will be closed on Saturday, July 12th from 2-5pm for a festival in Clifton Park.  To avoid the road closure, take Indian Drive from Belair Road to get to the golf course.  The map below highlights the route to take to the golf course from Belair Road.

Inspired by the PGA’s, Tee it Forward initiative, Clifton Park is in the process of creating a new forward tee box on the 15th-hole, which scheduled to be ready this spring.  This is similar to the forward tee box on the 6th-hole that was added last year.  In 2013, we also graded and reseeded both the 11th-hole and 13th-hole tee complexes.  All of these improvements are to enhance the enjoyment of playing Clifton Park.  Our greens remain some of the best in Maryland; come out and play to experience it yourself!


Description & History


The Clifton Park Golf Course, built in 1915, is the first public golf course in Baltimore.  Hole #1, directly adjacent to the Clifton Mansion provides a starting point for a panoramic journey through new and old Baltimore.  From the first green, players can look south to the city skyline and Clifton Tower. You can imagine Johns Hopkins himself standing in the tower with his telescope, searching the horizon for one of his many merchant ships.  With any luck, he could discern his personal flag from the others, hop in a carriage down to the harbor, and greet the captain, personally. To the distant east is the silhouette of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. A few blocks away, Baltimore City College High School (est. 1839 is perched on high; the “Castle on the Hill”.

The golf course has beautifully maintained greens, well manicured fairways, and a delightful layout.  Convenient, value priced and PGA managed, Clifton Park is a perfect answer to today’s fast paced, time-restricted lifestyle. It is an ideal natural resource, adding charm and value to the neighborhood; ecologically, socially, economically, and psychologically.
