Executive Chef

Swan Point Yacht & Country Club

Property Description:

Swan Point Yacht & Country Club started as a quaint, nine-hole Southern Maryland golf course along the banks of the Potomac River. Then, in the late 80’s Bob Cupp, world renowned golf course designer and consultant to the Augusta National Golf was hired to expand and redesign Swan Point. The result is one of a very special and unique golfing challenges. For golfers who know the Middle Atlantic coast well, one image keeps coming to mind when they play here: They could swear they are in the Carolinas when they are on our course. Possibly it’s because on 12 holes, either water or marsh can come into play. Perhaps it’s because players share the fairways with deer, herons, osprey, and bald eagles
