Hidden gem off the beaten path. Worth the 1 hour 20 minute drive from Silver Spring. Greens are always perfect and the course has a very nice layout - challenging but fair. The back 9 is as good as it gets. Very plain pro shop and snack shop but very friendly personnel. Keep it the way it is and enjoy the cheap greens fees.
There is nothing exciting about this course. It's ok for a Golf Now hot deal, but it would not be a likely choice to play at normal rate. Very flat.... just not a fun course. I can't imagine how it gets such a high rating by Golf Week and Golf Digest!
to many houses
There are really way to many houses around this course to play. If your new or have a problem with slicing do not go
played four times
Played 3 times prior to labor day and it was painful. No marshal to speak of and granted it was just two of us but kids in front that had no idea of course ediquit and the other 4-some we passed were no better because one of them through a tantrum throwing clubs and kicking his bag on the cart. When we finally passed all was only behind 4 drunks on the last 2 holes. that
Great course to play
I have had the opportunity to play this course several times. It is a wonderful course, very well maintained, easy to get to, and not too expensive. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting a challenge, but being fair to all levels of players.
Great value for this course
Greens were in great condition as well as most of the tee-boxes...fairways and rough need to be defined better
Pace was very good. I am a 15-18 handicap and the guy I was playing with for the first time was a 20-30 and we still finished in 4 hrs
Accuracy is what you need both in direction and distance.
This is a very nice golf course but I am glad the people I played with had played it before. They helped me to stay out of trouble several times just by telling me where to hit it and where to avoid. There are a number of places that, if you don't know the course, you could put yourself in serious trouble hitting where you think would be good on the first sight. Here you need the correct direction and distance to avoid some serious problems. The length of time did not include the rain delay of about 45 minutes.
Best value in the area
Locust Hill Golf Course is by far the best value for the money in the Metro DC area. The greens are always in prisitne shape and the fairways and bunker well maintained. The staff are always customer friendly.
Always a great course to play. Greens can be most challenging when pin placements are tough. Course is always in great shape and the nineteenth hole is worth visiting.
The greens were super fast.
Excellent condition. Fastest greens on any public course that I have played. Very challenging.
This course is in a very good condition but the clubhouse is very basic.
Day of Golf Better Than Day of Work
Had a chance to play with one of my co workers today 6/8/13 Weather was great ,course was very nice, fairways were very well maintained , the greens were very fast and in perfect condition.
First time I had been there in about 2 years or so since I took my son in law and the difference was night and day could not believe how well they had brought it up would tell everyone to check it out if you have not been in a while
Course is a good value for the price immaculate greens and fairways. Would reccomend this course to anyone
Fast greens and tight fairways
Don't spray into the rough or you'll be in for a tough day. Keep it in the fairway and away from the trees. Back 9 is much more challenging than the front. Lots of water in play. Lots of undulation. Fun course. I'd play it again
Fun course, nice challenge and slow play
There are a lot of fun, challenging holes to be had here. The course is always in very good shape and the staff is friendly. The problem is slow play the last few times I've been there. Even with a handful of rangers buzzing around the course moving people along, it's still a 5 hour round on the weekends. As long as you get your mind set to be out there that long, I can recommend it.
Staff extremely friendly and accomodating. Several times the rangers came around to make sure our round was moving smoothly enough. Even though there might have only been a 5 min wait here and there they jumped to make sure things moved more quickly after that. The course's layout is very good, each hole much different than the last. Distances are good, not short and easy, but not too long and tough. Price was maybe a little high for the area but with well maintained greens and fairways i cannot complain. I would play here again
Not quit a $30.00 course
The greens were in rough shape, all in all not bad.
Locusdt hill is a great little course with enough challenge to make it fun but not so much it is too diffacult.
Love playing at loucst hill they consistintly have some of the fastes smothest running greens i have ever played on. Add to that the prounced hills in the greens and putting can be a hole lot of fun there. The course is mostly flat making it fair for the higher handicapped golfer but there is plenty of water and ob to so hit it straight. I really like playing here because you dont need to particulary long to shoot well but the course does reward those who keep it in and play and have a good short game.
Greeat value for the money and never really that crowded either. It's WV little secret. shhhh dont tell anyone!
Out of shape!
I played this course 10 years ago it was a gem. I loved the greens they are hard and fast. The fairways are in need of some love. I played on a Monday which was serior day. After 3.5 hours for 9 holes I ask for a rain check for the other nine. Staff was glad to accommodate us. So I will give it another shot later in May to see the condition.
