Very disappointing to see all tee boxes and greens air raided with no prior knowledge before booking round. Nothing on golf now or course site. I can almost understand the fairways being brown and in terrible shape due to the weird weather, but if the course is under repair, customers should know before they fully pay for what a standard round should cost.

Extremely disappointed in my first experience of the year with Algonkian - ordinarily a decent course in good shape but my most recent round was comically bad. While I understand its early in the season it was borderline criminal to take money for the course in its current state. Every single fairway was patchy dead yellow grass. On Two holes they just randomly stuck a pin in the middle of the fairway because the greens were under repair. I understand maintenance work needs to be done on courses but they should be obligated to let you know before you book and its nearly Masters weekend the course needs to be in far better shape at this time of year (this wasn't a February round). I played 1757 the other week and the course was in 1000x better shape - I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere until reviews reflect that they have gotten the course back up to even minimal viable standards

Algonkian GC is good golf course. I played it on 9/25/17. The driving range looks out onto the Potomac and the pro shop has golf equipment plus food and drinks. The greens had recently been aerated and were on the 'very slow' side, which is why I gave the conditions an 'average' rating. Normally I'd give it four stars. The pace of play was good. It's a solid course, not a dog track, if you're looking to play there for the first time.

This is a great course. Long (almost 7,000 yards) from the tips, 6,500 from the white tees. Fun layout. Good conditions. Ok pace of play on weekend, great pace during the week. I'd return any time I'm in the area.

We had an enjoyable round. The course was long for ladies, so I did not score very well, but I enjoyed the greenness and the abundant wild life (mostly deer). Fairways had a lot of cut grass trimmings and rough was high; greens were significantly slower than I am used to, but the overall experience was positive.

Really nice public course. Very flat and easy to walk. Many tree lines holes, making hitting the fairways a premium. Course is near the Potomac river and stay green throughout the summer. Lots of wildlife in and around the course.

Great value for the money. Course was in great shape. Some of the course staff are unfriendly but does not effect the overall experience. Couse could also up grade the club house. However, for a regional park great place to paly.

Greens were aireated a month ago and the sand and small holes are finally going away. I can't wait for the greens to get rolled to see if they roll true.

It's close and moderately priced so I have gone back. The rough was really thick, but I believe that's due to rain and time of year

Algonkian Golf Course is a challenging design in a beautiful setting. The staff is always friendly there. After a week with plenty of rain, the greens and fairways were in good shape, and the beautiful weather made for an enjoyable day. The deer, birds and even a fox were enjoying the course too.

Great value for the caliber of the course and condition. Greens and fairways in great shape, bunkers could use a little work. Very little elevation change but overall a very very lovely course and round. Reasonable prices in the pro shop and restaurant.

The course was fine. It was fair to somewhat easy. The only negative thing was it was cart path only and I couldn't figure out why as we haven't received rain in this area in a long time. They should tell you in advance bc there is a lot of walking.

A couple of really pretty holes. Sharing the course with a ton of deer who are quite used to people
