It is said that ordinary conference facilities and hotels measure their meeting space in square feet. At Turf Valley Resort & Conference Center, in Ellicott City, Maryland, they measure their meeting space in acres! In all, Turf Valley offers the region's premier golf resort and conference center with meeting facilities for groups of 10 - 1,000 guests.

Turf Valley attributes its warmth and charm to being family owned and operated. A half century ago, Turf Valley was a picturesque horse farm where fine thoroughbred galloped and grazed over the "turf." Nicholas and Mary Mangione purchased Turf Valley Country Club in 1978. The Mangione family nurtured Turf Valley from a private golf club to become the area's foremost catering establishment. Their dreams to build a hotel amid the golf courses was realized in 1988. From its tranquil pastoral beginnings, Turf Valley has flourished and grown to become the Northeast's Premier Resort and Conference Center.

At the close of a long day of work or play, retreat to the comfort and privacy of the resort's guest accommodations. From 223 beautiful hotel rooms and suites overlooking the scenic South course, to the 2100 square foot Golf Villas perched high on the crest of a hill, Turf Valley is perfectly suited as a romantic weekend getaway or a temporary residence for a relocating executive and family.

No other resort in the Northeast can compare to Turf Valley for golf. Its 54 championship holes nestled in the heart of Maryland's prestigious and beautiful hunt country are sure to beat the competition. The East Course is the most challenging design. Its tight, tree-lined fairways place a premium on accuracy off the tee. Some dramatic elevation changes at times make club selection difficult. Many greens are guarded by bunkers, and streams keep popping up to grab wayward shots. The South Course is more open, shorter and therefore easier. It has an abundance of quality par 4's of less than 400 yards that challenge your club selection off the tee more so than in the fairway. The terrain undulates severely at times, but not quite to the extent of the East Course. The South Course is the most wide open and the most forgiving of the three courses. The newest 9 holes of the North Course opened two years ago and challenges your target golf play. The older nine is still as long as ever, making the North Course the longest of the trio. Not too many courses can test different aspects of your game like the North Course does. The North Course is a combination of the East and South courses and might be the most difficult, it is definitely the longest.
