Great Day

Hit “hole in one” on # 17 - three witnesses. Anytime you’re able to do that it is a GREAT DAY.

This course fairly tests your skills.

Interesting layout and greens that run slow but true.

Walked

This is the best bang for your buck around Bowie

It is a somewhat challenging course. And you can always walk on and play. Holes are in close proximity so you can walk the course with ease. Enterprise is in better shape but is costly and sometimes tough to get a tee time. You definitely can't walk up and play Enterprise. With a few of the courses going out of business, Bowie has stood the test of time.

Disappointed!

My husband and I arrived at the course and we were stopped by Mike asking if we had a tee time. We responded yes and he proceeded to tell us we were wrong. We showed him the confirmation from Golfnow, and he told us it figured. He said that Gold now was not a good option. They ended up squeezing us in with another group which made me uncomfortable to to the COVID situation. I missed playing the first nine due to this. Nobody in the clubhouse were wearing mask even though the county has one of the highest positivity rates in Maryland. They apparently overbooked and Mike decided to come out in the course later and rudely tell everyone to pick up the pace. The grounds were a mess and they have the worst customer service in the clubhouse when you pay and of course MIKE. I would never recommend this course ever due to the staff. I will say the young lady driving the snack cart was very nice.
