Masonry Institute of Virginia Annual Golf Outing
Are you up for the challenge?
Cross Creek Golf Club is the latest gem from Ault, Clark & Associates. Players of all abilities will fall in love with this upscale public facility, complete with bentgrass tees, fairways, and greens. This wooded 18-hole championship layout, with the Little Paint Branch Creek meandering through the course, several spirited elevation changes and rock outcroppings on several holes offers players scenery that is unmatched in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Cross Creek Golf Club will get the attention of golfers of all skill levels right from the start. The par 5 first tee requires a precise drive over water with trees lining the remainder of the hole. The par 70 design embraces the natural forested landscape while carving out fairways that will make accuracy and shot making a premium. On the back nine the remnants of an old gravel quarry afforded many unique opportunities to forge spectacular holes amid the weathered vertical sand backs.
The two most visually striking holes are found on the back and once a golfer reaches the crest of the par 5, 13th, a panorama unlike any other in the Washington area unfolds. “Man and Mother Nature have given us an unbelievable opportunity to create something that looks like the high country of Colorado, versus the low lands of Maryland,” says Clark.
This championship course and residential community is delicately laid out to provide a balanced interaction with numerous creeks, ponds and spirited elevation changes. With bentgrass tees, fairways and greens Cross Creek Golf Club is a “must play” for golfers in the Mid-Atlantic/ Washington DC region.
