Nestled between Georgia Avenue and Norbeck Road in Montgomery County, Maryland is Manor Country Club, a premier recreational escape on more than 430 acres with surrounding homes and a vibrant family-centric community. The Club itself offers 27-holes of golf, 10 tennis courts – with four of the courses able to be used year-round with tennis bubbles, two swimming pools and a club house with golf and tennis pro shops, dining room, space for member activities and grand event rentals.
The Club and the land on which it sits have a rich history. Designed in 1922 as a respite from the everyday hustle and bustle of the nation’s capital, Manor Country Club is a wooded oasis in the heart of Maryland.
A 2011 Washington Post piece says that “living in Rockville’s Manor Park neighborhood and belonging to the Manor Country Club are like going to a college with an active student center.” The Club and the surrounding community have a collegial vibe and campus setting – and understandably so, as many of the homes surrounding the Club are originals from the cottages designed in the 1920s by Charles Zeller, a prominent architect who was known for his work at Cornell University, Princeton University, Penn State University and many other houses of higher education.
For golf enthusiasts, Manor Country Club is not to be missed. More than 20,000 rounds of golf are played annually at the 18-hole Championship Course at Manor Country Club which was originally designed by famed golf course architect William Flynn. The course renovations done in 2005 and 2008 by Arthur Hills specifically targeted the restoration of original Flynn course characteristics. The Championship Course is the Club’s premier golf destination and has received a number of accolades, including ranking as one of the top 10 renovated private courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine. The Club also has a second 9-hole short course.
With its many amenities and active community scene, residents may never want to leave Manor Country Club, but when the city calls, the Club is less than two miles from the new Intercounty Connector toll road which provides easy access to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore – and south on nearby Georgia Avenue, the White House sits just 15 miles away.
