Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club near Washington, D.C.

Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club is a public access course in the metropolitan Washington D.C. area. It was built in 1996 and designed by Gary Player, who called the site "perfect for a golf course."

The land is very scenic and natural, and the namesake falls run down along the 18th tee box. As far as design, the golf course is very wide open from the tee box, and the homes that share some of the property are kept well off the fairways. You'll also notice some incredibly steep bunkers, steeper than you might expect for a course that otherwise feels very playable. Some have names like "Grant's Tomb" and "Satan's foxhole."

Raspberry Falls is an upscale club with bentgrass fairways and greens, along with free range balls and use of a very good short game area for those who purchase an $85-$105 green fee.
