I do not know why I could not make score this course

Fair and good layout for average golfers. Because of my slump on approach shots, I made too much double-bogeys on this course. Price is reasonable, but I can say they do not have memorable holes. This is daily-used course.

Too many out of bounds

Unfortunately, There was no clubhouse due to a major fire few months ago. The course is really challenging. Fast greens and too many out of bounds. Need to put a driver away for most holes

Average course

No clubhouse because of fire two months ago, no food or drink available. Course was in solid condition with fast greens. Tee boxes could have been better. No ball washers and very poor marking system for distances on holes. Would play here again for 20 dollars or less.

great value

This is a great value. Greens always fast and true even in early spring after a tough winter.

The only thing is they need more yardage markers. In today's golf course experience it is critical to know how far you got to the center of the green. Not that I'm going to hit it that far....but it would be nice not to have to guess the yardage.

Clubhouse burned down

The course was in great condition considering our winter. Greens still fast and true. BUT no clubhouse. And facilities, paid at back of truck? So no amenities whatsoever.

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.
