The Potomac Ridge golf course is conveniently situated just off the Washington Beltway, giving easy access to and from Alexandria, D.C., Annapolis and Prince George's and Charles Counties. The course offers 27 holes of championship golf divided into the Hollow, Meadows, and Ridge nines. Originally opened as the 18-hole Southview Golf Course in 1994, the name was changed and another nine was added in 2003. The Hollow Course is one of two designed by Ault Clark. It's the longest of the three at 3,375 yards from the back tees, but it's just barely longer than the Ridge nine, which was designed by Tom Walker. All of the golf courses are player friendly enough to appeal to players of all skill levels. In addition to the three nines, there is also a full practice facility that included a driving range short game area, and a putting green.

This course is closed now.

This golf course is closed and has been for several years. It is now an agricultural nursery for the most part. It should not be listed.

Stay Away!

This is a good layout but the current conditions are pitiful. Almost every tee box was nothing but dirt as were most greens.Apparently, they no longer bother to maintain the course. Also, the pro seemed to not really think the conditions were that bad! STAY AWAY!!!

Good value

Challenging layout. It had been raining off and on for a few days. Soggy conditions did not dampen our fun. Will return. Good value.

Needs help

Course was horrible, worse course I played in Maryland. Layout has potential, but course conditions were awful. Grass wasn't cut, bunkers not raked, fairways weren't cut and grass was missing.

Played Meadows-Ridge at Potomac Ridge

Played at 7:30am on a Sunday morning. Was just above freezing when we teed off. Range is really beat up, and course is badly understaffed. I think there was one employee there trying to do everything. He was friendly, but needed help. Pace of play was great, played 18 holes in 3:45. The Meadows course is pretty beat up, and not especially challenging. The Ridge is in better shape, and is more difficult. It has some pretty severe elevation changes, and some good hole design. I will play again mid-summer to see if conditions improve.

Great Course, rude staff

This course is very challenging and would have been enjoyable had it not been for the rude staff. It was kind of cold and windy the day we played so we were literally the only ones on the course. The staff acted like they were offended that we actually wanted to play, like they wanted to close up and we were holding them up. The pro shop and dining areas were dark like they didn't want us to go there. When we finished 18, everything was closed and the guy was waiting for us with an attitude like we were holding him up. I don't care if I ever play there again. Way too many great courses in the area that appreciate our business.

1st Time out at Potomac Shores

In my opinion, Potomac Ridge is nothing close to some of the bad reviews I had read about it. Had negative thoughts about the place before I played but quickly those were changed. Course staff was very helpful and friendly. Told them it was my first time playing the course, and a staff member walked with me outside and showed me and told me things I needed to know about the course. The course wasn't in horrible shape. Just don't show up thinking you are playing at Augusta. Im sure as the weather gets better, that fairways will as well. Greens were in great shape, grass was just a little long on them. I was playing as a single. Played two balls on most holes and finished in just over 2 hours. (That was with cart path only rule in place as well) As long as you are one that doesnt think you are the next coming of Tiger Woods, I would recommend this course. Wasn't crowded at all and it definitely beats being in an office.

Looks like its closing

The golf shop is nearly empty; the staff seems to show less civility; they need to invest funds on the course to bring it back to it's former grandeur. Otherwise, it is set to failure and eventual closure. And, that would be a shame ... it was/could be a great course again.
