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!

Good course for the money

This course is good for what you pay. But by no means amazing. There sand traps have no sand and look like they haven’t in a long time some of the greens have bare spots from divots not being fixed properly. And several of there trees have huge wasp nests which makes retrieving balls impossible sometimes.

Used to be nice

I've played this course many times over the years because I like the layout and length. However now they're just letting it fall apart. Tee boxes and fairways are all torn up, and even the greens need major repair. There's been a sign up all season saying they're doing repairs but no evidence of that. I've noticed it's not nearly as busy as it used to be so apparently players have noticed. Either sell the course or make it more playable.

Good course - Bad player etiquette

This is a nice enough course that I enjoy playing. It has enough quirkiness to keep it interesting, and I've always been able to play fast (2.5 - 3 hour solo rounds). Yes there are some bad spots on the greens, but the bigger issue is the number of inconsiderate jerks who don't repair their ball marks, or clearly smack their putters into the green. Staff is very friendly and if you've never played go play this course

Challenging and fun for a good price

Very friendly staff who accommodate golfers' needs readily. The course has a good layout and is quite challenging, hence lots of fun (or frustration, both of which may urge you to come back). A few greens are damaged and need repairing.

Below average

The course is in bad condition. The tee boxes need to be mowed shorter .. there were only blue and white tee boxes available and some of the blues weren’t event set up. The greens have corrosion on almost every green and the bunkers have weeds everywhere.. the biggest perk is the course is never very busy so there is not much waiting.. years ago I used to be able to play the course for $8 hot deals.. they need to bring those back and should not be charging the same as other courses in the area.
