Walked

This is the best bang for your buck around Bowie

It is a somewhat challenging course. And you can always walk on and play. Holes are in close proximity so you can walk the course with ease. Enterprise is in better shape but is costly and sometimes tough to get a tee time. You definitely can't walk up and play Enterprise. With a few of the courses going out of business, Bowie has stood the test of time.

Disappointed!

My husband and I arrived at the course and we were stopped by Mike asking if we had a tee time. We responded yes and he proceeded to tell us we were wrong. We showed him the confirmation from Golfnow, and he told us it figured. He said that Gold now was not a good option. They ended up squeezing us in with another group which made me uncomfortable to to the COVID situation. I missed playing the first nine due to this. Nobody in the clubhouse were wearing mask even though the county has one of the highest positivity rates in Maryland. They apparently overbooked and Mike decided to come out in the course later and rudely tell everyone to pick up the pace. The grounds were a mess and they have the worst customer service in the clubhouse when you pay and of course MIKE. I would never recommend this course ever due to the staff. I will say the young lady driving the snack cart was very nice.

Good Solid Course

Bowie Golf Course is in very good condition late winter/ early spring. The course was well maintained and the pace was excellent for as crowded it was. Glad to see course was fully functional as other courses in the area are cart path only .

Challenging course

Even though some holes are relatively short, the contours of the greens make each very challenging!

I wouldn’t expect any progress on the clubhouse for quite some time. We hope to continue working on making the grounds better for better playing conditions. If you are a city resident please make your concerns know to the city of Bowie about the clubhouse. It will help

Thanks again for your support of Bowie Golf

Mice Experience

This course was a challenge for my bogey or slightly better game. Greens were difficult to read and speeds varied quite a bit (possibly a result of it being so early season). It is a Par 70 course so not very long but distances and pin placements made it a challenge. Lots of maintenance work going on: trees being taken down. I would like for the course to provide sand for divot repairs! If resources allow, some cart path repairs would be very nice, In general a good course to play at this price point.

Thanks for the nice review. There’s going to be many upgrades in the coming years including carts paths. Hope to see you more.

Very nice for the price

I think this course is a hidden jewel. The fairway are in great shape. The rough are very forgiving. A course that is very walkable. The greens are slower than I like. I do enjoy playing there.
