Not good planning

There was a tourney happening on the back nine later on, so they had us start back there. Makes sense. When we finished the 18th hole we went to the front and there was a foursome starting off and they were taking their good ol time. They seemed to not care and didn’t ask us to play thru ( it was just two of us) so we had to skip a hole to get passed them. Over all just annoyed.

Probably won’t play again for $30

Decided to give them another chance this year considering the conditions were rough last year. Paid $30 for the 9am tee time and honestly I was just disappointed. The fairways weren’t bad at all. They were cut well as well as the rough. Tee boxes weren’t awful but also not good. The greens were terrible. Craters and bare spots all over. Might have had two putts all round that didn’t bounce the whole way to the cup. I wouldn’t complain if it was a 15 or 20 dollar round. But for 30 a round you expect decent conditions and it was not decent.

Needs work

This course is in fair condition. They could do better at maintaining the greens. They’re like concrete with a lot of dry patches. Other than that, it’s a good course.

Greens looked like the beach of Normandy

The greens were horrible. Dead spots all over and small divots all over them. Putting was inconsistent and impossible. Fairways were decent for the course. Won’t be coming back until they fix this mess.

Needs work

Looks like they will soon sell the land for something else. No improvement from last year & it needs a lot of work. Will play in a month or two & if no improvement I won't be back.

will not return

i usually play par line a few times a year for a cheap hot deal. i played there for the first time this year and will not be returning. conditions were so dreadful that at times i just wanted to end the round early. if you like patches all over the fairways, extremely bumpy greens, and dead grass on tee boxes this course is for you. not even worth the $15 hot deals.

The layout was pretty good. Greens look like a few horses ran through them right before we played. Tees are horrible. Wasn’t worth the $35 spent and won’t be back until the course is in better condition.

Terrible condition

Imagine a nice hot steamy dog doo doo getting thrown in your face. That’s comparable to 18 holes at par line. Love trying new courses and I definitely won’t be going back. Seems like the grounds crew went MIA a long time ago. Any course in bad shape this time of year needs to fire the landscapers!

Horrible greens and tee boxes

I have never played on a course with worse greens and tee boxes. Every green is pox marked with some sort of fungus. Your putts bounce around and can't stay on line. Most of the tee boxes are just patches of mud with no grass or patches of weeds. Don't waste your money playing this course.

5 Hour Round and Bad Greens

Pace of play was bad. 5 hour round. The greens were in terrible shape. Bumps and craters on every green. Some of the tee boxes were pretty much non-existent.

Garbage pit

This place should be a horse track since I'm pretty sure horses graze on the greens. Greenskeeper should be ashamed. Better off putting on the gravel cartpath than the greens. Pace was OK but lots of blind T shots and holes are close to each other. Suprised I didnt die. People should tell grenade instead of Fore so everyone can watch out.

A Unique Course for the Capital Area

Par Line is definitely worth giving a try! I played the course for the first time yesterday, and had a great time. It’s got a fun layout, between some sharp doglegs, rolling hills and even a power line that runs along the first fairway. If that doesn’t give you the *energy* to play, I don’t know what will. There’s no sand to be found anymore, as the course is working on removing all of its bunkers.

The fairways are very open, too, and there aren’t many trees, so you don’t have to worry about an errant shot ruining your hole. Maintenance is the only noticeable problem, with the fairways and greens missing lots of spots of grass. Most of the time, it didn’t affect my play, but there were a couple putts that got bounced around by it. It wasn’t bad enough to hurt my experience, though. Come give Par Line a shot, and make sure to grab one of their hot dogs, too!
