I had not played this course in about 7 years because it had become a dog track. Recently I was told that the course had a new superintendent but it was the old superintendent they had when the course was in great shape. The last time I had played it there were weeds growing out of the greens. But I must say the greens are now and excellent condition. I played the South course and about three of the tee boxes need work. The fairways were in good shape and the rough is treacherous. The course has come a long ways from when I last played it. Definitely trending in the right direction.
The South course has improved but still needs work. The bunkers were hard and had rocks in them and some of the greens were in bad shape
A lot of the tee boxes were in poor condition. Fairways had strips that were uncut like the mower blade was missing or extremely dull. Greens were horrible. Bunkers had rocks, clay, and standing water. The course has been neglected.
COULD NOT GET ON BASE TO PLAY
GolfNow did not include any instructions to access the AFB to get to the golf course to play. As a result, I went to the visitor center and was told I would need a sponsor. I called the course and was told that there is nothing they can do and to call GolfNow for a refund. As you may know, there is NO WAY to contact GolfNow OR to get a refund day of. I could understand if I did not follow instructions, but in this case THERE WERE NO INSTRUCTIONS!
Do not play this Course!
I was a member here back in 2016 and the courses were excellent. Played 2 years ago, it was terrible, there were no greens, just burned bare ground. Do not play here ever! As of 6/1/22 the condition has not changed. They are charging for range balls now. It used to a free. Never coming back. Food also suck.
Very disappointing gold course. The staff at gold shop were friendly. However, the course is in atrocious condition. The greens are hairy/long, slow and have fungus everywhere. The sand traps are horrible kept and manicured. The fairways are in poor condition and the tee boxes are a joke. Local public courses including Hains Point/East Potomac park are in much better shape. Fort Belvoir and Quantico are in much better condition for other military course options. It is hard to call this an acceptable golf course. DO NOT spend the money or waste the time.
Forty four years I have been playing the Courses at Andrews . Never have I seen the courses as bad as now. I have always brought guess, not anymore.
Don’t play until at least October
Most greens were burned out And tee boxes were in horrible condition. Sand traps were unplayable. Course seems to have fallen from being one of the better public courses in PG County. Hopefully it will rebound..
Greens were bombed out
Course does not drain well. There had been some hard rain but the course had standing water in most of the fairways and hte bunkers had mostly water. Greens were either mud or carpet like grass.
Terrible Greens/Rough Fairways
Greens are in terrible shape, a mixture between soggy and barren dirt. The fairways need some attention as well. Crab grass is popping up everywhere. Tee boxes are similarly neglected.
Carts are gas powered and do not start reliably. Hardly worth the $22.00 for 9 holes.
While the course appears to be good value for the money, the combination of poor course conditions, high cost of carts, and pace of play make this a "must miss" course.
The South Course at Andrews used to be its flagship course-NOT ANYMORE. First off, the course was soaked due to recent rains and cart path only-all of that is understandable. However, as a former member (too many outings/perennial slow play issues) I can tell you this course used to be great. I heard the old greenskeeper retired and it is painfully obvious-the new guy is not getting it done whatsoever. The manager of this facility is a professional yes man and the highest paid (NAF-non-appropriated funds) employee in the Air Force so I can't for the life of me understand why this is happening.
They seem to have a fleet of employees around the pro shop doing very little because even the carts were filthy-to the point where they had mold on the interior roof. I can only assume that conditions are going way down because Obama is out of office and Trump has his own courses to play at.
I was drawn to this course because like others I was looking forward to a great 4 to 5 star course. Unfortunately this was one of the few times I truly disappointed. It was being billed as a 4 star but shouldn't be more than a 2. Fairways were horrible, Not maintained hardly at all with debris kinda all over the course. Greens were just okay. Service starting in the clubhouse was very mediocre. Felt like your basic public city course where they are going through the motion of collecting green fees and letting people play. Wouldn't return at this point. Really expected more.
Asked the starter what course would be best for "mediocre" players, he switched us from east to west. Not very challenging - one dog leg right...fairways were in bad shape...very hard to find the ball with how brown the grass was. will go back, bet it's nicer when the grass is green. loved the range balls were included, they had new mats but no tees in them to drive.
False tee time posting
Booked south course and when checked in, starter started on west course saying south course was having tournament.
Need refund from golf now or from the course management. West course is terrible condition it's not worth for playing even for free.
