Their purpose: To experience and support play at the Marlton Golf Club. Owned, operated and managed by five African American co-owners, their company, HWV Enterprises, LLC, secured the deal on April 10, 2015 bringing to fruition the Marlton Golf Club.
Marlton is a jewel of a course. Located at 9413 Midland Turn, Upper Marlboro, MD, the Par 71- course has a rating of 69.8 and 123 slope. It is distinguished for being the first public course in Prince George’s County. Logistically, the course is in a terrific location at just 20-minutes outside of Washington, DC, and 45-minutes from Baltimore.
12 UBGA members made the highly anticipated trip. 11 were from the New York area and one member flew in from Missouri for the golfing adventure.
