I don't believe that Renditions is a difficult course
for everyone, but it is for me.
For instance, on the dreaded water hole reminiscent of TPC Sawgrass I put
the ball on the edge of the green in one. Then proceeded to four putt. On
the next hole, I cut the corner very nicely saving fifty yards and ended up
in some trees. No problem, the way was clear except for one tree which, of
course, I hit.
My golfing friend George whose handicap is so low that when he occasionally
double bogies he’s ready to concede the hole; concede the match; then go
home and order a new set of clubs. He gave me a half stroke a hole and then
proceeded to beat me soundly.
George’s first visit to Renditions produced the below comments.

Just a few miles outside our nation’s Capitol in
Davidsonville, MD there is an unusual treat awaiting golfers.
It is here that Renditions--Golf’s Grand Slam Experience—players are carried
thousands of miles across the Atlantic to courses like Royal Birkdale and
Carnoustie and closer to home to Augusta National, Winged Foot, Medinah and
other prestigious and historic golf courses.
On this Dave Edsall public 18 hole, par 72 course each hole is a replica
from a course that has hosted one or more of golf’s four major
championships. Three holes at Augusta National can be played by teeing off
here on holes number 6, 7 and eight.
My favorite holes were number #2 (replica of Augusta National Club # 12);
number #7 (replica of Augusta National hole #2); and number #17 (replica of
Winged Foot #7). Why do these three holes rate as my favorites? They are all
par 3’s, but more importantly they were the only pars on my scorecard.
If you are in the area and looking for a golf fix, treat yourself to many of
the most famous and challenging holes in the sport’s history.
Also no passport is needed to enjoy a few “overseas” holes.
