Great Value

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.

Pretty pedestrian

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!

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.

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.

Great shape!!!!

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.

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

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.

Friendly atmosphere

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

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.
