Great value for your money at this course. Greens were in good shape and staff was very friendly. Visiting area on business and didn’t have my clubs with me, the course loaned clubs for free.

Not a four star course as claimed

Pros: The greens are in excellent shape but not too difficult or challenging.

Cons The fairways a very tight and under construction, having been recently sodded. Every green has a cart path restriction sign well over the 15-yard average setback, so there is a lot of walking to your cart.

To be fair there are 3 par 3s that have been recently sodded. No other fairways are under construction.

Great course rude staff

Staff member tried to charge me more than GolfNow booked price because the schedule was crowded bumped price from $25 per player to $29 I felt like he was pretty stupid to do that over $4 a player for 3 players. Played with a great guy named Tom that joined our group but didn’t need to be haggled for booking online. Staff should be smarter considering a lot of people book online

Packed

Had a midday tee time onCourse was packed at 1130am. A group on every hole. Booked a hot deal tee time for two. Was informed that the other two golf now hot deal tee time people would be paired up with us, due to the course was full. No big dea, and turned out to be only a threesome. Round took 4:30 due to packed course. Longer than used to on other courses.

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.
