Worth the Money

I booked a tee time through Golf Now and paid $25 per person. I thought the course setup was good and the course was in good shape. My son and I would definitely go back. The only problem we had was that it was an extremely windy day, which made it more difficult. We thoroughly enjoyed the day, in spite of the wind.

Best deal for the money around

Very impressed with the conditions at Bowie Golf Club, especially for this time of year. The fairways were manicured, traps had soft sand, the greens were true. A few had recently been aerated, but still played well. Pace of play on front nine was slow because my group was behind four young guys who were not too swift. They did however understand what was happening and allowed us to move past them to start 10. But all in all a great value and I look forward to playing again soon.

People want to pay $25 for golf then complain they don’t get a $75 golf course. It’s truly amazing.

First time Great day

A little slow to start but I liked the course. Early spring conditions so course was not in the best shape. Then how can you complain when it is 70 and sunny for this time of year. Looking forward to the next round.

First time at Bowie

Was a good one! The starter didn't know how to handle our online reservation, and when we went inside to figure out what was going on, they informed us our tee time had been moved back (it was like 15 minutes later, so, sure. nbd). Then, around the time we had booked online, we were told we were on deck to start!

The course is nice. Found that I would get myself into some serious trouble if I missed the fairways. Greens were spongy, but nice. Tee box grass was slightly long, but it didn't impact any of my shots. Nice variety of hole layouts, elevation, hazards -- a nice mix of a little bit of everything.

Would definitely consider playing again!

$12 - GolfNow

For $12 I can’t complain. Greens were very receptive to shots, but unbelievably slow when putting. Overall, what can you expect for $12. If the greens and fairways firm, course would be a 4/5.

Best deal - Hands down

Best deal in the area. Course is very well maintained for the price. Course is on the easier side but has some difficult holes. Staff is honestly great and always friendly. Can be slow when busy but nothing to complain about.

Thank You for the kind words. We planted a lot of grass seed this fall and the combination of how wet it’s been and the newly germinated grass is the reason the grass is a bit high right now. Once the new grass is established we will get it mowed to a desirable height. In the next few weeks you should see a marked improvement.
Thanks again and see you soon
