A short course. But, do not be deceived. This is not an easy course at all. Most all of the fairways are tree lined. Out of bounds is everywhere. You likely don't need a driver on every par 4 unless it is the straightest club in your bag.
Greens are tricky, but basically fair. Tend to be slightly on the slow side (especially in the early spring season).
Clubhouse is being redone and should be ready in the spring. This is a significant upgrade.
Also, Fairway Hills is the home of First Tee of Howard County: a youth oriented program that teaches kids about life using golf.

Well kept course, difficult for beginners but still fun. A lot of bends and narrow fairways.

Let me start by saying I almost never leave reviews unless I have really GOOD customer service or someone just wows me but this place put me over the edge with their unfriendly, vindictive, annoying and incompetent staff members named HAROLD and MIKE. I buy a groupon for $71 which includes 18 holes of golf for 2 and a range token for each player. Well this all starts off on a bad foot when I go in there and tell them I have a 2:10 Tee Time for 2 and I have a groupon that I’m going to use(which I told them on the phone I was going to use when I made the tee time) and the guy HAROLD has no idea about the groupon deal or how it works. HAROLD then tries to tell me that it is only for 9 holes and I don’t get a range token hahahaha! What in the hell kind of sense does that make??!?! I could have just showed up and paid the normal rates which would have probably been less than $35 per person to play 9 holes. Anyways I go back and forth and finally teach the guy HAROLD how to do his job and what his company is offering on Groupon and fight 2 range tokens out of him that I was owed in the deal. It gets better here. Me and my buddy finally go out after warming up and we get to hole 6 and we both are on the greens about to putt(for birdies) and the ranger named MIKE(I believe that was his name, big guy with a Texas hat or Tennessee hat) pulls up and interrupts our round and says “are you guys the 2:10 tee time?” I reply yes and he says “Did you guys pay and checkin?” we both replied yes and he says “Well at the turn check in the clubhouse and tell the guys in there” we just say ok and aren’t really that frustrated at this point. We move along and my buddy comes up meets us at the turn to play 9 that he paid for. We get to hole 14 and MIKE comes along again “ Hey did you guys stop in the clubhouse at the turn?” we reply no we didn’t need anything in there we just kept moving along and he says “ Make sure you check in there before you leave” and we still are like ok whatever we don’t really know what this guys deal is but not letting him mess up our round. So we finish 18 holes and turn the carts back in and MIKE is following us to our cars and says “So you guys just gunna pay for 9 holes and run off?” and I respond with WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?!?!? and he says “Come in the clubhouse and talk to the guys in here” so I go in and they try to make me pay again for 2 players and say that my buddy who played 9 holes with us really played 18 holes and tried to make him pay more also. So I whip my phone and receipt out and ask what are you guys talking about?! Then MIKE says “Oh im sorry it was a miscommunication on my part” meanwhile he wouldn’t stop harassing us on the course and HAROLD is just clueless on how to work anything in the shop. All in all this staff needs some real bad help and training on how to do their jobs the right way and management needs to train the employees on what coupons and deals are out there and what exactly they are. As far as MIKE goes he needs to realize that a golf ranger is not a Howard County Police Officer position and learn how to do his job the right way instead of trying to police the course.
