Wished for more

From tee to green usually good. The issues come with subpar bunkers, and for early morning Player’s, sometimes not being able to find your ball in the first cut due to clumped grass clippings.

Fun Track

First time since it changed hands....still challenging; needs some work on the sand traps and greens aren't as fast as I remember. Overall really fun and will be back. Also check out the 19th hole, great food.

Great course and prices.

Had a 7:30 am tee time on a Saturday morning. Staff was friendly , grass range, nice putting green. The course was in excellent condition and for a golf course in a community the layout was great . Houses were not in play. Finished the round in 4 hours 20 minutes which isn’t bad for the weekend. Greens rolled true and at a good pace. Paid the going rate of 59 bucks and it was well worth it. I have paid more many times and the courses were not even close to this one. I am from the ashburn area and it took me 45 minutes to get there. Well worth the drive.

Diminishing Returns

We only lasted 8 holes on this day, due to a pace-of-play of 2 hrs/38 mins, for those 8 holes. Tried to play through at the turn, and in fact asked that day's pro shop staff , if any body had turned lately, and they had no idea? They then proceeded to send groups off the back to pigeon-hold us in. No players assistant, course in substandard condition, and deplorable pace. It is unfortunate, in that the layout is interesting.

Green is so slow

It was the most slowest green I've ever played.

They should have cut the grass for the weekend golfer even if it was Easter Sunday.

Good course in Frederick.

First time playing this course; buddy and I booked our rounds when we thought it would be in the 50s this weekend, but the weather forecast got progressively worse as the week went on. Still, we carried on. Temp at tee time (11:00 am) was a balmy 30 degrees with a stiff 20 mph breeze. This will not be a fair assessment of the course, as the fairways were very wet from the rain the day before (70 degrees just 24 hours before our round!). From what I could tell, the fairways are kept in good shape, greens still rolled pretty true, and had some slope changes to them that I think would make them play really challenging in the Spring/Summer. I'll definitely be back to play this course in the Summer so I can get a true taste of the course. Got a good deal on GolfNow, and only paid $14 so not too disappointed. Looks like they have a grass range that is open in the Spring/Summer, and that's always a plus!! Course had some forced carries on some second shots like the 9th and 17th holes, and those really emphasize hitting it in the fairway. Like I said before, I'll be back in the Summer to give this course a true assessment. Otherwise, I enjoyed my round. Course looks like it is tied to a restaurant, and although I did not eat after my round, it looked like it had a full bar (sometimes necessary!!), and some good food options. Will be back.

profitable

It was like 12 people stopped playing at the same time and just walked away from their golf balls? Found 11 balls in the fairways and on the greens?

November Golf

Staff was very friendly, course was in excellent shape considering the recent rain. Chilly day but well worth the trip. They have reasonable rates and pace of play is usually good. Sand traps are much improved from previous year. Leaves were blown off fairways and greens were well maintained.
