Practice Course

Astonishing that anyone would call this course anything more than a practice course. It is short, greens are completely flat., and there is not a lot of hazards. If you can hit a 200 yard shot straight enough, than you are going to have short irons/wedges into every green. If I don't shoot in the mid 70's here, I am not playing well. It is stupidly easy. The price they charge is outrageous for the level of golf you get at this place. I live 7 miles away and I try to avoid this place because of how boring the golf course is and how much they charge. I could play this course with 3 or 4 clubs(including putter) and break 80 no problem. Waste of time.

I am playing this course on Sunday. I'm thankful that this course sounds "stupidly easy". I have not swung a club since last September!

Beautiful Course

I played Laytonsville during the early afternoon and finished my round in less than 3 hours. This a beautiful course and the greens were in great condition. I'd definitely play this course again.

Great course for the money

I have played this course 5 times of 6 times now. It is a great source for the money. Course is mostly well kept. Staff is fantastic. Wait time is mostly acceptable on most days. I will continue to play this course this year as long as the price is right

Underrated course, great value!

I've been playing this course with my buddy for the last 2 or 3 years, almost weekly. It's a bit of a hidden gem. In fact, several of the Montgomery County courses are hidden gems. Most people prefer Hampshire Greens and Northwest, but I prefer Laytonsville, Poolesville, and Little Bennett. This course has some relatively easy holes, especially #1, #8, #14, and #17. But it has a good variety of different looks and elevations, shot-making holes, long and short holes, easy and challenging holes. The only awkward ("squirrelly" hole) is #7, which is an L-shaped tee shot across water. The back nine is fairly tough, especially #10, #11, #15, and #18, all of which are long-ish and more difficult than average (for the average golfer). The staff is always friendly and helpful and efficient. The driving range is so-so, and the food is so-so, but the pro shop staff is great, the starters are great, and the course conditions are always great, considering the amount of play they get and the lower greens fees (especially if you get the Mont Co card). All in all, this is a very underrated course, and the greens keeper does a great job.

Favorite MCG Course

Love this course with generous fairways and usually easy and true greens. Nice course to get your game back on track as it can be a confidence booster with many scoring opportunities out there. Can be long rounds on prime times during the weekends, but the course is almost always one of the better maintained of the MCG courses. Check it out.

Too Expensive

Average golf course... I enjoy playing here but they (and all Montgomery County Courses) are getting too expensive for quality. Have to play late in the day for a decent price.

Frost delay + late start = only 13 holes and no raincheck

Can't complain too much about a Friday round after Christmas Day in high 40's, but GolfNow should have arrangements with course to provide rainchecks for players who get out later than scheduled tee time and don't finish 18. Could've scheduled later time directly with course for little later time at less expensive rate. Sorry, just a cheap Scottsman!

Nice variety, no two holes alike.

The course was in nice condition. For mid Decmber the greens were quite good. Be careful of downhill putts, they can be a quicker than expected. A mix of short and longer holes. Not much trouble, water in play on just 1 hole. Maybe half of the sand traps are now grass bunkers. Very nice and accommodating staff. I plan on returning.

In good condition

Course was in good shape & appeared to be well-maintained particularly for this time of year. Fairways & rough had been cut, greens were mostly smooth and bunkers were in good condition with plenty of sand.
This is a pretty forgiving course with wide fairways & large greens. Some of the greens have a severe slope which can make them difficult in the summer when you're above the hole but otherwise it's pretty fair with very few blind or deceptive shots.
The Grill is closed during the winter months.

nice but slow

The staff is amazing. I didn't save any money by booking through golfnow which was disappointing. Make sure to look at the "% saved."
Im assuming because Saturday was a wash out, the course over booked tee times on Sunday. We had a 25 min wait for our tee time. Then we were sent behind a SLOW foresome. I would suggest that you provide a cart for those groups in order to speed up play. Also, it would have been nice for you to offer a small bucket of range balls since we had such a long wait. The greens had airatted....not much you can do but they were difficult to play on.
