MarylandGolf.com - Maryland Golf Course Guide
Rocky Gap features Maryland's only Jack Nicklaus Design Golf Course. The course is easily accessible from Exit 50 on I-68, but while playing you'll feel like you're a million miles away. The design takes advantage of the location among the undulating hills of the ageless Appalachian Mountains and the blue waters of the adjacent lake.
Golf has been associated with St Andrews for hundreds of years. The first written record of golf in St Andrews dates from 1552: it is a charter, bearing the seal of the Archbishop of St Andrews, which confirms that townspeople had the right to play golf on the Links, which at that time were also used for activities such as football, livestock grazing and rabbit breeding! It is likely that golf had been played on St Andrews' Links long before that, as the sport was forbidden in Scotland by King James II nearly a century earlier, in 1457.
