It's almost as if they spent all their money trying to design a premier course for the area and forgot they needed to maintain it. Layout isn't terrible, but it is repetitive and unimaginative. Fairways, rough, greens, bunkers are awful.

Fairways- 1/2 grass 1/2 dirt. This creates a perpetually awful lie even if you're in the fairway. Many fairways had a lot of bare spots to include the 2nd, their "signature hole". It looked like a flood had ripped through and washed a once great hole away.

Greens- never recovered from being airated, still full of holes. Greens hadn't been cut/rolled in a while and it seemed routine to not repair ball marks.

Rough- sometimes better than the fairway. A lot of bare spots with hard dirt/rocks.

Bunkers- Usually the first thing to go when a course is going downhill. They appeared nice. However once you're in them you'll see they only have enough sand to look nice( a mm or two). Beneath that is hard clay making normal bunker shots nearly impossible. It's akin to hitting off of the cart path.

Range- don't bother paying for range balls. 1/2 were cut so bad they wouldn't fly true. Other half barely had dimples.

Overall impression- Course needs new management/funding and overhaul on grounds keeping. I felt as if I played the same holes over and over again, all but one par 5 is a dogleg left that you have to layup because a creek cuts the fairway forcing you to use less than a driver. Majority of the par 4's have a hazard in front of the green and a downhill 2nd shot. 2 200 yard par 3's and 2 120 yard par 3's.

Save you're money and go to Potomac Shores.

Augustine's is an excellent track. Unfortunately, they are taking down a large number of tress; for some reason that is not obvious.

It has left a number of holes with unfinished grounds, visible debris and honestly messy.

I am sure they will fix it up over the summer; one would hope

I play here once or twice every year - love the challenging layout (from blue, ~6400).

The fairway conditions are generally good, though there are a few spots where the rain has taken a toll and the course could be more proactive in protecting and rehabbing these soggy areas, and perhaps the grass has not really taken off and filled in entirely due to the early season wetness.

The greens roll very true, but again I feel that some more proactive maintenance could be taken to rehab the few (i.e., left side of green on hole 5) struggling areas.

A true knock would be the sup-bar condition of some of the bunkers, which need more sand and better drainage - there is no reason for the protective skirt underneath to ever be exposed, which did occur.

For the price, this is still a great course in an expensive area, and would be totally worth the drive in the I-95 congestion if there was more effort to shore up the maintenance details.

I play Augustine fairly regularly and always enjoy the layout and variety of holes. While conditions have suffered a bit over the last year, today was near perfect! The bermuda grass fairways were greening up nicely (should be perfect in a couple of weeks!) and the greens were outstanding! The staff has clearly had a very busy off season getting the course ready for a great golf season.

I cannot wait to play again!

Augustine has a great layout and good mix of easy and challenging holes. However, the greens have not recovered from last years disaster and the fairways are terribly thin even for winter condition. Also, the bunkers are thin and many of them are washed out.

Beautiful day in February and the course was pretty open. They are doing a lot of necessary tree and brush removal which was nice to see and will make the course quicker to play and more user friendly. The couse was good for the time of year except for the greens which were oretty beatup and worn, virtually unputtable; but that was ok bcs it was February.

I guess my concern would be what is your definition of unputtable? I have been a big fan on Augustine getting back to some where near the grandeur it once was, but the issues with their greens over the past few years is worrisome to say the least. No making up for bad greens, you can play winter rules in the fairways, but no way around a poor green. Thanks for the update on the rest of the course, one weekend soon I will need to stop in and give it a try to see where they are at.

A beautiful course with creative and fun routing. Tee boxes are varied and in great shape. Fairways were also superb. The only downer - the greens were in poor condition. Not sure if it was the extremely hot summer or we caught the course before aeration, very difficult to keep anything on line.

The course has a nice layout. Reasonable prices for the area. The greens are horrible. Totally unplayable. Weeds growing out of the green. The staff is always nice. Pace of play could be better. Marshals should do more than just ride around they need to speed up play. But this seems to be the norm at every course I play at lately.

I have played here a few times and really enjoy it each time. The greens and fairways were in great shape which always makes the round better. The staff was very accommodating when I called due to traffic issues. Every staff member I encountered was both helpful and friendly-a welcome change from some courses. I highly recommend this course for all levels of players provided they choose the right tee. NOTE: players-fix your ball marks and divots!!!
