Busy environment: busses, metros, traffic, football practice, etc., etc.
Fairways in OK shape, greens in great shape considering location and amount of play!
On several holes you find yourself alongside the driving range hoping not to get hit and hoping to find your ball among dozens of range balls. If ball is hit in fairway you might find it ... not in fairway, well good luck!!
Not worth it
Showed up for 11:40 tee time. At 11:40 the 11:20 group was still on the first box. Starter wasn’t concerned but made sure to tell me to hurry up and get out there. Front nine was in terrible shape. Back was better
The course was a solid option in DC. The tee boxes were ridiculously firm. Otherwise, it was in pretty good shape for a city course in the middle of summer.
tee time was at 1:20...didn't start until 1:50 due to not enough carts. course was in terrible shape, tee box ground was so hard on the front 9 you couldn't even put a tee in the ground. the holes are so close together you frequently will have others hit into your "fairway." was my first time playing and will never go back. would not recommend to a friend. 50 dollars to play 18 here is a joke, where is that money going?
tee time was at 1:20....did not start playing until 1:50 due to not enough carts. course was in terrible shape, one of the worst I've ever played at. first time playing and do not plan on coming back
Tee boxes are very difficult to place tees in on most of the front nine; the back nine is better in that regard. Fairways are pretty rough with some muddy, non playable spots. The greens are in pretty good shape and are challenging. Cart paths are very bad so take it slow or you will lose your bag off the back of the cart. Overall a decent experience for the price.
Greens are in excellent condition but tough. Teebox in great shape with newly grown grass. Fairways need lots of work, with bleed areas. Carth paths need lots works.
Good for cost
Pace of play was good. But course needed some good TLC. Tee boxed were tough to put tees down on some holes but the course could be great with some maintenance.
