Conditions are awful

The conditions of this course are the worst I ever played anywhere. The greens have huge patches missing grass, same thing with the fairways. Putting is impossible due to uneven dirt-grass-dirt everywhere. This course should not be operating in such POOR condition, it is obvious it has not been maintained.

Employee radio

The course is almost unplayable on the 2nd, 5th,6th and 9th hole. If the fairways are not covered with grass clipping they have no grass at all. Literally hitting off the dirt or mud. Greens are trying to come back to life but I really think the greens are very bumpy and pot marked. Players don't fix ball marks or have hit irons leaving big gouges on the surface of the greens. To top it off coming down the ninth fairway a radio is blasting from the club house. It was blasting when we were putting out. I found out that it was one of the employees, drunk, sitting on the clubhouse deck playing his own radio. Totally inappropriate.

Hi. Thank you for leaving us a review. The current condition of the course is by no means the standard we set to achieve, but I am happy to report that the greens are being reseeded and should continue to improve day by day as we head into Fall. In terms of the employee sitting outside the clubhouse with the radio, we have made note with the teams in charge and the situation is being handled. Thank you for visiting Patriots Glen National Golf Club. We hope you give us another try in the near future.

Improving

I use to play this course before its demise years ago( 10 years ago). It was an awesome course with a great layout. The current management got delt a tough hand and they have done a lot to improve. I have seem even from the spring to the fall the vast improvements they have made. Yes there are bad patches on the fairway and the greens, but from I have seen and how it has been, the conditions are vastly improving and I give them credit. They are trying and it doesn't happen overnight. I hope they have the opprotunity/funds to continue the great progress they have made.

To the Patriots Glen staff kudos and keep your heads up and don't mind the haters!

By far the worst conditioned course myself and friends have EVER played on. It is sad because it could be a real nice course if there was any care whatsoever put into it.

Great environment, great customer service!

I wanted to write a comprehensive review as of Labor Day. This is hands down one of the best layouts in the area. Every hole is unique in its own way. Overall, the conditions are fair. The staff is very friendly! Dave in the pro shop is awesome! The course is beginning to shape up after the brutal summer heat. Course staff is doing extensive repairs to the fairways and tee boxes. There is still some work that needs to be done to the greens which I hope to see fixed within the next few months. The people within the community, along with the staff is why I truly enjoy it here. I’ve stopped going to beautiful golf courses with horrendous customer service. So kudos to them! Overall this is budget friendly place to enjoy and improve my golf game.

Never Again

I have never played on a course which was so badly maintained. The greens were burnt and the fairways missing grass and dirt. It was my sons birthday which I took him for a father and sons golf outing and I was so embarrassed and upset of the conditions of the course. If I would have know in advance I would have played somewhere else. It was a big disappointed and embarrassed

We are working to get everything up to par. Unfortunately our course is located directly on a large clay deposit causing the current condition of the course.

Do not golf here

The course is completely burnt with the tee boxes, fairways, and greens all in horrible condition. They should be closed for the rest of the golf season or not charge more than $20 for a round.

Don’t play here

Worst course I’ve ever played. Rough hadn’t been cut for at least a week. Fairways were 90% dirt. Greens are patchy. No matter what deal you get don’t play here. This course gets worse every time I've been here. This will definitely be the last time.

Low cost but you get what you pay for

Staff was friendly, golf cart was electric so not loud at all which was nice. You get a hot dog and a beverage for a full round of golf but.... the sand traps had grass growing in them, the greens were patchy and had bare spots, the fairway was full of dead grass and was not smooth. The course needs an overhaul...

Do Yourself A Favor, Stay Away

I wouldn't play this course again if they paid me too. What a waste of a decent layout. This course is screaming for some care and maintenance. It could be great. Unfortunately, it's god awful. Fairways and greens looked like the salt flats. Our group had to move countless balls off of baked out sand and dirt patches of fairways onto closest patch of grass we could find. On the greens we had to move balls several feet so as to not putt over what resembled steamrolled mulch.
The one good aspect was pace of play. We only saw a two-some, walking, the entire time we were out there.

Shelter in place until further notice

played here last month and thought the course was heading in the right direction, I guess the recent weather took a toll on conditioning. If you get the hot deal an just want to kill a few hours hitting the ball this is the place. If you care about keeping score, not so much. I'll return in a few weeks to see if things are improving.

Disgraceful

This course is in such Poor condition it should be closed or sold. This course also doesn’t drain well at all and we were informed that it was cartpath only today twice within eight holes and we just had to leave because it was a sloppy mess . The fact that the Rangers are concerned about destroying this disgraceful course that is not maintained at all by the patrons using golf carts on it is unthinkably backwards. Without patrons you don’t have a course to worry about. I have never thought the $10 is too much to charge for around of golf until today . If anyone sees this review please just save your money and play somewhere else

Conditions deteriorating

Played this course many times over the years, including once earlier this season, and I really enjoy the layout. At that time the conditions were improving, so we put it back on the rotation. Unfortunately conditions have deteriorated to the point where it’s simply not enjoyable; mostly weeds on tee boxes and fairways and greens in rough shape.

Horrendous

We had a foursome play 18 holes - the vast majority of the fairways and greens are in horrendous shape. The sand bunkers were full of water and not raked, nor was there a rake anywhere to be found.

The fact that they are charging people to play on the course is quite comical. Do yourself a favor - go play at Chesapeake Bay in Rising Sun, Furnace Bay in Perryville, your back yard, literally anywhere else is in better shape...

A round with friends

Played a lightning fast 18 today. We were forced to play best ball because of a tournament. The course is getting there I will say they are working hard. Due to the all the rain we received lately grass is growing, the roughs and fringe areas on some holes hadn't been cut. Had issues locating balls just of the fairways which normally wouldn't be an issue except the pending tournament. Not sure why the Golf Now App let me book but it did and we managed to get all 18 in. Lone suggestion porta pots along the course .
