Not worth the money

Course is in awful condition. Even for a public course it is not worth the cost. Fairways are rock hard, like hitting off a cart path with turf on them. Many parts of the fairways and greens are barren with just dirt. You’re almost better off hitting from the rough as the grass is at least a little softer and more forgiving.

Rough

Not much good to say about this course. If you simply want to say you are playing golf, then go play it. No real cart paths, no signs between holes and only a few on a number of Tee's. I will say the layout has some interesting holes and some blind shots, having a GPS will definitely help. Greens were in pretty bad shape and FW's had bare spots throughout. I played with a very nice older man, so atleast the company was good. Won't be going back.

The course is fair

The course conditions has some ways to go. I’ve played it for years though not recently until July 2nd and it shows progress. I certainly would play it again however the green fee with cart was $57 on the Golfnow app and I thought that was a bit much for the shape it’s in. Oh well….

7-Some

Conditions weren’t great but not bad at all for a muni. Greens were in good shape and rolled true. Decent layout, a little short. Biggest issue is there was a group of 7 playing two groups ahead of us. Really wish the staff would do something to prevent this as this really ruins the day for the rest of the groups on the course

GOLFPASS Non-benefit

I rarely if ever use GOLFPASS or GOLFNOW but I did when I saw the email featuring this course in my email. I've wanted to play this historic course for sometime and thought this would be a good opportunity. Little did I know that it would've been $15 cheaper if I'd just walked up on the day of play and paid regular price. Don't see the benefit of this app at this point.

Potential

Way better than going to east Potomac. One thing I love about both courses is they do a good job on the greens. This course has a ton of potential if they fixed up some of the fairways and cart path. These don’t bother me as long as the greens roll true, and they did.

Sadness

I just hope NLT starts to actually rehab this course because it has so much potential.

Moving Toward Excellence

Have played at Langston a lot in the past 5 years and up until yesterday have been disappointed every single time. What a change with the green and the grounds. Good job so far NLT

Sub par course conditions

The course is close proximity to DC. Course conditions are below average and pace of play was slow. Greens were tiny but rolled well. Challenging course overall but fair.
