Patuxent Greens Golf Club is tucked behind stands of mature trees that provide the course with a peacefully secluded feel. The original course was built in the 1960s but the layout underwent a major renovation in 2005. The focus of the golf course has always been the beautiful setting, which serves as home to an abundance of wildlife including deer, heron, beavers, and golfers might even see the occasional bald eagle. The layout has plenty of risk-reward holes, including the sixth, one of the golf course's most memorable holes. This short par 4 presents different shot making options. You can either lay up between 100-150 yards out, or challenge yourself and attempt to go over the tree-lined dogleg to the green. Patuxent Greens Golf Club finishes with its signature hole, a scenic par 4 that plays to a peninsula green, backed by a view of the clubhouse.

We arrived early for a 6:15 tee time,nobody showed up at pro shop until 6:45.He told us there was a frost delay and would be 30 minute wait,did not care that we waited over 30 minutes for them to open. 10 minutes later came out and said by the way front 9 is closed and back 9 was aerated the day before.I asked why it was not online as an advisory and he said there was no way of doing it.I have booked over 100 rounds on golf now and they put a advisory at courses that have aerated greens but they failed to do so.I drove 45 minutes only to deal with incompetence on their part!!

Arrived at golf course early for 6:15 tee time, Pro Shop was not open. They arrived at 6:45 told us that there was a frost delay which we did not see any. Told us it would be a half hour wait and after 10 minutes walks outside to tell us oh by the way front 9 is closed and they aerated the back yesterday with no warning on website that aeration had occurred. I have booked hundred rounds of golf on GolfNow and courses normally let you know if there is an advisory! We booked a tee time at a different course and left, we will never go to that Golf Course again

I returned to play this course after years of not being there. I decided to give it a shot, based upon their stated claims of "$1.5 million of renovations". Obviously, these 'renovations' did not involve the golf course. The tee boxes were horrendous, the fairways a weed patch, the greens bumpy, the bunkers a mud hole, and water puddles all over. To top that off, it took us almost 6 hours to play 18 holes, teeing off at about 11:00 a.m. There were no rangers policing the speed of play, and on some holes has 4 groups on it - green/fairway/2 on the tee box. So, if you want to play golf, go elsewhere. There are plenty of decent course for the money within a half hour drive of this monstrosity..

This course is very nicely laid out and good for golfers of all levels. Unfortunately it's located in a lowland area and does not drain well; this summer has been especially wet in Maryland and the course has not dried out well. That being said, the greens were in perfect condition and rolled well. If you play here, just expect some boggy areas and play "free lift, clean, and place" and you will have a good time.

It's a nice course with a moderately challenging layout, I like it. The fairways and greens are all in really good shape but the rough is ROUGH. By that I mean if you miss a fairway, or green, even by just a little, you get punished. It's most frustrating around the green... it's really hard to get up and down (even from 20 or 30ft away) sometimes because the grass is so long. But, other than that, I really like to play here :)

The course was in great shape. Greens and fairways are above average. However, the roughs are cut high, and creates a pace-of-play issue when players are constantly looking for balls, even a short distance off the fairways, not to mention lost balls in order to avoid holding up players behind. Staff has gone to great lengths to improve course conditions from the past, but the issue with the roughs remains. Too bad.

Played front 9 in little under 1.5 hours; took close to 3 hours to play the back 9... No ranger/marshal at all, which would have helped. There was a single, twosome, & foursome in front of us. Why the single didn't pair up with the twosome still confuses me.

Booked a nice rate to play this course. Fun track. There is water on 17 holes, but its not as intimidating as that may sound since water doesn't come into play all that often. Pace of play was great through first 10 holes when no one was playing in front of me, but really bogged down on the final 8 holes when a few groups apparently started rounds on the back 9. Enjoyable experience and will play again sometime.

The course should have been closed...

There was standing water everywhere

The person at the desk complained. About Golf Now and said if I did not have proof of confirmation we would not play without paying them.
