One of the best in the DC area
Played in less than 4 hours on Labor Day. Course was a little damp with two extra holes additional cart path only, but you could tell the staff cares about doing a good job. Will absolutely be coming back!
Thank you. With the extreme heat we have had to water a little more than we would like to in order to keep the grass cool enough to survive. Plus, with all of the previous rain, the ground is saturated to begin with. The weather just did not make it possible to let the course dry out as much as we would like that day. It is a day to day thing this time of year. Cheers!
The course was very wet so there was no roll off the tee making the course play a lot longer. The first 3 holes play like par fives although they are rated four. The staff, practice area were great. Will play again when it’s dry.
Yes, the whole area has had record rain, making the course play long. We look forward to serving you again!
The staff was friendly. The practice range, puttting green, and short game practice areas were great. Then the course....
Stepping onto the first tee gave me hope for what might await. A fairway pot bunker about 200yds out into a 419yd hole splits the fairway into two landing areas. The upper fairway will give you slightly longer approach, but a better vantage point to the green than the lower fairway. The green was receptive, and they roll beautifully.
There are 500+ yd par 5’s and 306yd and 320yd par 4’s offering outstanding risk-reward resembling Pete Dye designed courses. The five par 3’s range from 119yd to 190yd, and flag placements will determine landing zones not to be messed with.
My only regret is not being able to stay long enough to play another round while I was here. Enjoy!! I know I did...
The course was beautiful and in great shape. The practice facilities were closed because it was a Tuesday and they always close the driving range on Tuesdays for repairs. I thought they should have rearranged the schedule given the holiday, and been better prepared for the rush.
Thank you, the range is ony closed in the mornings, but that is a good point - we should have tried to do the range in the morning. I believe extreme heat was an issue that prevented us from getting that done on Monday.
I played from the tips and am a scratch golfer. It was hard! The rough was long and made it near impossible to reach the green. Greens were excellent which is really all I care about. The kid who was starter didn’t know what he was doing which was unfortunate because it was the busiest day of the week I’m sure. Overall a good day
Easy booking through golfnow. Range was nice. Practice bunker is a nice feature to have. Love the links style of the course. Will definitely be back once the course dries out.
Thanks - glad you enjoyed your day at Blue Mash!
Slow play/High Rough
This is a nice course. It's pretty open but has a lot trees and underbrush so if you're not straight there's trouble lurking. Let's talk rough. The length of the rough AND the fairways on the par 3's was so long (3-4 inches) it was extremely hard to find a ball. I felt I was playing in the US Open! I was short of the green on a par 3 what should have been the fairway and I lost a ball due to the high grass. There's no need to keep the rough that long if you're trying to attract average golfers to play there. Pace of play was EXTREMELY poor. We got behind a foursome and they did not play ready golf. It took 5 hours for the round. There were no marshals on the course so we could only grind our teeth and wait. On the positive side the fairways were great, soft and thick. The green had been aerated 2 weeks ago so they were fairly rough. Nice course but could be better with more mowing of the rough and a more keen eye on the pace of play.
Thanks for your review - had rain 9 out of last 10 days so tough to get all of the mowing done. I think a lot of courses had the same problem the day you played. Sorry about the pace - that is unacceptable and we will get it fixed!!
