Always a good course

Given the amount of rain that has fallen recently, the course was in good shape. There were areas in the fairways that were saturated along with some greens as well. However, the course was in god condition and very playable.

Good value for hot deal

Overall course was in pretty good shape. Good layout, but I didn’t like the 2-3 holes with blind tee shots (11 & 13 I think). Hole 10 is pretty ridiculous. Greens were in nice shape and rolled true. Pace of play was good for a Sunday 12:00pm tee time. For $18 I was happy with this course.

I truly enjoy playing this course

I've only starting playing a few times a year for the last 5 years or so and have found this course has a bit of everything I need to fine-tune my play: varying elevations, challenging bunkers, long drives with blind fades, and quiet, serene landscapes to help with my concentration. There's a few cart paths edges that could use some TLC and low spots on the back-9 greens that are occasionally wet that I just routinely need to avoid but otherwise it's designed well. I agree pace of play can sometimes be a concern but that comes with the course's popularity.

Need a lot of work on tee boxes

Course layout is good, greens and most fairway are in pretty good shape. Tee boxes are in terrible shape. Elderly 4 some tied up the back nine causing major backup last 4-5 holes.

Good greens, poor fairways

A bit pricey for the conditions, but on a Saturday before noon not a bad deal...all things considered. The snack bar/food at the turn was good.

Average course

Conditions were extremely wet but not too much standing water. Ball did not travel after hitting the ground.
Otherwise a good value round of golf.

Best Staff and Value

Full disclosure, I am a member. I'm a member because the staff is easily the best I've seen, and the quality of the course for the price is exceptional. I always recommend this course for those reasons.

Great value

First time playing Bowie. Pleasant surprise. Very nice layout that presents a challenge without being punishing. The course was in great condition. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Great course for the money and I plan on going back.

Good Round

my only complaint is there were too many walkers for a weekend when most golfers come out, most seemed to have a problem keeping up with the people in carts that were with, which caused a backup and turned a 4 hour round to 5 hours
