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.

Was surprised to learn that I had already been billed for the entire foursome in advance, as were my partners. That was a hassle for us, as I was not planning to treat the group!

Excellent golf course. Every time I go I'm reminded how much fun this layout is, a but of a mix of links style and parkland golf. The course is in beautiful shape right now and the staff is always top notch. Do yourself a favor and play.

As Usual Blue Mash Is A Great Course With The 3 Toughest Starting Holes In Md And 3 Tough Finishing Holes. the Course Was Still Very Wet From The Snow which made it play even harder than usual. I would Play here more often but it’s Really Over Priced even in the Off Season. Could believe what they charged to play on Such a Cold Bad weather day

This is a very nice & challenging layout. The course was in very good condition for February, the staff is quite friendly, and the 19th hole has a good selection (try the Blizzard!)... My primary complaint with Blue Mash is that there are much better values around. I'm glad I played this course again (it had been a long time), but it won't be in my normal rotation unless a bargain pops up on GN. My only other complaint is that there is no course layout on the scorecard, no hole layouts on the hole signs, and no GPS in the cart to indicate distances to hazards. If you don't have a range finder, either print out the hole layouts from their website, or purchase a yardage book (or take your chances).

Hi Mr. McGlade, thank you for your review. We do have a free yardage book available in the golf shop - I'm sorry the staff did not bring it to your attention. With the availability of gps phone apps and rangefinders, we have elected to keep technology out of the golf carts. Lastly, we usually have nice low rates available for those that book ahead online. Cheers!

Had a great hot deal from golfnow, course conditions were great, my wife really enjoyed playing there for the first time. Played the front 9 in less than 2 hours, played back nine in over 3 hours plus, had to wait on every tee box and sometimes there were 3 groups waiting to tee off. Never saw a marshall Other than that we had a good time meeting people and talking while waiting to tee off. Will play again.

My friend and I really enjoyed this course! It was in great condition. I liked the country-ish atmosphere and location. Great layout. Would play again, although I think it's a bit pricey. I was able to book a HOT deal. plus $10 reward on Golfnow.

Unusual course for this area - mix of links and parkland - mostly links. Holes are well presented but can be a little intimidating the first time you play. Nice facility and practice area.

We walked nine and rode nine. Greens were slow, but they rolled true. Keep the ball in the fairway because they are hard to find in the gorse.

I've played Blue Mash for years and the crew there has the course in primo shape. It's playing the best I've seen it in 8 years. I paid prime Saturday morning rate and still felt like the value held. With the way this course is playing if you get a chance to play off peak rates then you're in for a treat.

Greens were rolling awesome. I also appreciate real grass driving range.

The Staff is friendly, helpful and appreciate their customers - the way you expect for a top quality golf experience.

Great course conditions. Greens and fairways are in very good condition. Only (minor) complaint would be i hit into a couple fairway sprinklers and fairways where ball ended up was soggy in spots. Played on a weekday by myself, no wait. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an affordable, open but challenging course layout with good practice area (grass driving range) and friendly staff.

This course was a pleasant surprise and I will definitely be headed back very soon. The layout has a lot of risk/reward, which I love. The course conditions were pristine. Greens rolled quick and true, fairways rolled. Overall 10/10 for me.
