nice, close, cheap, and slow

It's a good course. It's a fun course and its fairly easy and short. If its nice out and a weekend/holiday it is SLOW! took 2.5 hours to get through 9 holes.

Sligo Golf Course

This is a very recreational course setting; this reservation was mainly to trial some clubs. The course is not marked well, and holes are drivable, so most golfers will not get an opportunity to work with fairway metals.

Great, fun course

I loved the course. I'm not a very good golfer, so this course was forgiving enough for me to enjoy each hole. Greens and fairways were very well kept. They have the footgolf holes on the same course but the soccer guys didn't really get in the way. I just wish it were 18 holes for the same price. That's probably too much to ask, though.

A Good Walk Not Spoiled

Sligo Creek is an easy course to walk, with a mix of less challenging and more challenging holes. Most of the par 4s are short, but a couple require a tee shot over a stream or hazard. The par 3s played 150-180 yards. The par 4 9th requires a very good tee shot to get around the corner for the approach shot. The greens were in pretty good shape. Overall, a nice way to get in 9 holes.

Best 9 Hole course in the area

This is a great 9 hole course at a reasonable cost. Course condition is always good barring playing to soon after greens are airrated.

perfect for the beginner!

I have only been playing a few months. This is the perfect course for rookies like me. And with the hills, if you are looking for a little exercise while you play, it's all inclusive. I will be back!!!

I like Sligo just like my woman: cheap and easy!

It's everything I want in playing golf: Short, wide open, well maintained, fairways; inexpensive, and convenient. Keep your endless, expensive, narrow courses and give me a quick, cheap 9 holes where I'm on at 10:40 and off at 12:30 -ON A WEEKEND! You get the full range of fellow golfers, from bohemian sandalled locals, to well heeled, 7 handicapped octogenarians, and everything in between. I've played it for 35 years, and the fairways and greens have never been better. Life is hard enough. Give me easy for life's diversions. You gotta play Sligo at least once before it's all said and done.

Nice time

Its was my first time going to the golf course and its definitely a hidden gem. I'm new to golf (1 year) and looking for nice 9 hole course to get my game better and Sligo Creek Golf Course is the answer. Very friendly staff and very pleasant people in general. The course was in very good shape and cant wait to go back to play

Sligo dtill lives

Ah Sligo Creek Golf great course for beginners and skilled players. Did you know Sligo was Indian Springs Country Club prior to Beltway construction? The Beltway cut the course in two, so it moved out to Layhill rd (country club closed for housing development) and Sligo is what remains. The course is holding its own despite county planners trying to make soccer complex(imagine how much they would have to do to make Sligo level). So now we have to play Sligo often to gold off the planners, lets get going Silver Spring we still need to help make sure Sligo is there for future generations.
