The Gonk

Course layout is nice as usual, scorable if you hit your tee shots straight. To no fault of their own, Algonkian is laid out in a regional park near the Potomac River, it is bug central. The cicadas didn't bother me as much as the gnats. Used bug spray several times in the round but all I could take away in my mind is the constant swatting, couldn't focus on 75% of my shots and after 13 holes I just wanted to finish the round. As I said no fault of theirs, just be prepared. Walked 18 in 3.5 hours, that was phenomenal.

Easy peasy fun

Beautiful right now. Basically flat with some water, but no fairway bunkers, just some tough rough when it's thick. Hometown friendly members.

Great course

Algonkian is a fun course. Relatively flat. No fairway bunkers, a few around some greens. What makes it a challenge is its long and the greens are really hard to read. Pace is usually 4 hours.

This course is average

Driving range is awful. Trees overhead with some branches making it difficult to hit from some of the bays. Course is good. Greens and fairways well maintained.

I think the course is easy. What makes it hard is that it's long and the greens are really hard to read. Yes some branches are a little low on the driving range but they'll be trimmed. The best thing about the trees is they provide shade all day long. No other course in this area has that. And when it's over 80 or 90 you'll be happy those trees are there. AND there's lots of shade on the course because all holes have trees on the sides of fairways, not really in Play unless you miss the fairway

Crowded, slow, several temporary greens.

Frustrating round for a weekday afternoon. I gave up after 14 holes. Only the second time ever that I walked off a course.

Just another day at the Gonk

I play the Gonk frequently. It's the price that keeps me coming back. And the pace of play. And the layout. And the location. The only complaint is the greens need to be rolled. Maybe they're growing them out and will roll them later, who knows... they aren't terrible, but definitely a little bumpy following the punch/dressing a few weeks ago. Otherwise, it was another round paired up w/ really nice people w. a good pace for a great price. Love the Gonk.

Overall Solid public course

Greens were aerated but overall course was in good condition and pace was decent for a Saturday. Back 9 plays much shorter than front. First 4-5 holes felt like they were identical par 5/long par 4s (basically long/straight fairway with no deviation).

Great for the casual golfer

Course was in good condition. Layout is very flat layout with not much variation from hole to hole. Relatively easy course with not too much trouble as long as you keep it somewhat in play.
