If you're a golfer, chances are good that living near a golf course is a priority for you. I know because that describes my family!
There's no shortage of golf courses in the D.C. - Baltimore area, that's for sure! In Anne Arundel County alone there are thirteen, including three on military installations (Fort Meade and the U.S. Naval Academy). But which are located in a "golf course community" where you and your family could walk or bike to the golf course?
To answer that question for you, I compiled this list of Anne Arundel County golf courses along with addresses and links to their websites. A brief description of each golf course is based on data from golfable.com and information about housing was compiled from listings in the Metropolitan Regional Information Systems, Inc. (MRIS), our regional MLS. Courses I consider to be located in "golf course communities" are marked with an asterisk (*).
