Blue Mash Golf Course
Blue Mash Golf Course is the Rockville area's premier public offering. This Arthur Hills design combines links-style, parkland, wooded, and water holes. With such an interesting variety, the course is enjoyable for golfers of all different tastes and skill levels. With no forced carries, it's even a manageable course for beginners and high handicappers, while more seasoned golfers will be challenged by the length from the back tees, the well protected elevated greens, and the plentiful strategically placed bunkers. Water also comes into play on a few holes. The diverse mix of holes makes Blue Mash G.C. a true shotmaker's layout. In addition to the golf course, Blue Marsh is known for having one of the best practice facilities in all of Maryland. It features a 10,000-square-foot putting green, an all-grass-tee driving range, and a separate area for practicing your short game.

Early Spring Tune-Up Round
Given the time of year, the course was in great condition and looking forward to when the weather gets better and the greens can start to be maintained. The foursome in front were first group out and should have been the "rabbits" setting the pace...played front in 2+ hours...too slow. Great job by staff keeping debris and leaves clear, obviously doing a lot of caretaker maintenance in the winter. The course will be back to peak form in just a couple of weeks.
Thanks for the great review, Dan. We're glad to hear all our hard work isn't going unnoticed! Sorry to hear you had some pace of play issues, it's something we're monitoring closely as the season picks up. Hope to see you again soon!
Green is good condition in winter season!
There are so many in repaired ball marks. Even if t They enjoyed to play here with a lot of fun. They need to repair the ball marks and after their shots.please love the course and talks care of the green and fair ways. Thank you.
Hello, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again for another round soon. Thanks for playing!
Thanks, glad you enjoyed it. Yes, many people don't repair their ball marks.
Despite the weather being cold and windy, it was still an enjoyable round of golf. The layout is diverse but not too challenging. Will definitely be back.
Hey thanks a lot - glad you enjoyed it!
Very Good course and design
Blue Mash is a very good design and challenging course.
Thanks - happy holidays!
A little wet and crazy windy day, but it was 55 degrees and sunny. Cant complain about that. Had a great time with buddies golfing.
Glad you enjoyed it- thanks!
This course has great features! I
I and my wife absolutely satisfied at this rounding.
Best advice is to know your ability and play the correct tees for your handicap
This course will quickie let you know if you bitten off more than you can handle
This course is alway in good shape, though the rough was spotty with some thin spots
Keep your tee shots down the middle, a big hop to far offline will end up in deep long grass with little hope of finding your ball
Friendly staff and we got around 18 in 4:20
Challenging Layout with good mix of short & long holes
Blue Mash has a challenging layout, especially on the back 9. The front 9 is fairly wide open with bunkers, mounds, and elevation changes creating the primary challenge. However, most holes on the back 9 are relatively tight because of water along the fairways or trees on both sides of the fairways.
The course has an excellent mix of short and long holes. The short holes are not easy - well placed sand traps and slight (or severe) doglegs. The long holes are challenging because of numerous hazards (water, sand traps, trees, etc.) as well as the length.
The course is a good challenge for players of all abilities
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!
