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.

Great Golf Experience!Tired

Tired of playing golf courses with scarcely seeded fairways? Upgrade your experience and play a player’s golf course! The Blue Mash won’t disappoint!! Challenging for shot makers while offering fun and excitement for less skilled golfers. A must play!!

Fun and interesting layout, conditions need improvement

Blue Mash gets a lot of play and sadly the course tells you that. Several fairways are just torn to pieces -- it doesn't help having several shorter par 4s where I imagine you get 1) more people in the fairway and 2) more people with short irons ripping up sod. And this leads to greens issues on those same holes, pitch marks galore. But apart from those issues, course conditions are largely positive.

The layout is terrific. A lot of links golf with a few large ponds thrown in and then a few holes on the back nine that retreat into the woods. So it's not purely 18 holes of flat and barren links play - the variety makes it fun. Their staff are tremendous and I also appreciate their graduated twilight pricing in the evening.

Horrendous Course Conditions

The condition of the course (particularly the fairways) was horrendous and deplorable! Blue Mash should be ashamed to charge $84 to play this course at any time, let alone in the afternoon.

I have played goat tracks in better conditions. Don’t waste your money, stay away ad play elsewhere. All courses in this area are in much, much better condition.

There are some fairway areas under repair, at the moment, but the tees, roughs, greens and bunkers are all solid. This seems overly harsh.

Great Layout

The course is beautiful and laid out in a very creative way that made every hole a lot of fun. Unfortunately, a lot of the fairways were in terrible condition. The greens weren't as bad, but definitely some fairways were basically unplayable.

Great layout, but conditions and pace of play?!

One of the better layouts in the area, but obviously gets heavy play. Divots not filled in and plenty of unrepaired ballmarks on the green. Shouldn't be waiting as the second group out. Relatively minor complaints though - will be back and highly recommended.

Love playing here

The course is always in good shape and it doesn't get as much play as some of the county owned courses so it is usually taken care of. The staff is excellent and the price is right.
