36 Reasons To Love Crofton


When you move to Crofton, you may pass one of two 18–hole golf courses on the way home every day.  These are 36 of the many reasons why people love living in Crofton!

11th Fairway, Crofton Country Club

The championship golf course of Crofton Country Club is a Par 72 that plays 7211 yards from the Championship tees, 6782 from the Blues, 6297 from the White, 6004 from the Golds and 5529 from the Reds.   With a course rating of 74 and slope rating of 136, it plays tough and long.  Home-lined fairways and three water hazards (two creeks and the pond on #12) demand accuracy and length from tees and fairways alike. 

Crofton Country Club’s 18-hole course, designed by Ed Ault and built in 1964, has bent green fairways and greens.  With sandy soil, drainage is excellent, and the course is open year-round.   


Walden golfer

Nearby Walden Golf Club is more friendly to weekend and junior golfers with a shorter game, playing just 6504 yards from the Professional tees, 6312 from the Blues, 5947 from the Whites, 5335 from the Golds and 4384 from the Reds.  It is a Par 71 course, with a 72.1 course rating and 132 slope rating.  Water hazards come into play on fifteen holes.

Designed by Robert Trent Jones and Lindsey Irvin, the golf course was completed in 1990, and homes have grown up around and along Walden Golf Club ever since.   The course features sloped greens of bent grass, and the fairways are winter rye.


Learning to Play GolfMy dad encouraged my brothers and me to play golf as children because he felt that children who were on the golf course were children NOT getting into or making trouble!  Larry and I felt the same way, and all of our children learned to play golf at Crofton Country Club.  They literally ran home from school to grab their clubs and get to the golf course as soon as possible.  It paid off for us and our sons, because both Steve and Tim received golf scholarships to college.  Susan didn’t compete as a junior golfer, but she learned to golf as a child and she does play as an adult.

If you live in Crofton and do not play golf, why not give it a try?
