Its not Bulle Rock, Beechtree, Maryland G&CC or Mountain Branch. But I can play 2-3 rounds at Ruggles for the price of one round at those listed above.

The course is well maintained, the greens roll true and the service is great. There are some drainage issues on a couple holes.

7400 yds or so from the tips can make this course a beast if you so choose. The course is fairly open, but trees will catch almost any overly wayward shot. Greens are very large but that can also change your approach shot by two clubs depending on the hole. Zero blind shots on the course allow for a much faster round.

New management came in around 2012 and really turned every aspect of this course around. Well worth the round over paying out the ear for any of the aforementioned clubs and in much better condition than Wetlands or Geneva Farm.

I see no recent reviews of this course and there deserves to be more. Haven't played here in a few years and WoW is it nice. Very well maintained and in excelent condition. The addition of a few new tees and new greens are a big improvement. Head Pro Dave Correll and especially Superintendent Mark Burk have a gem on their hands. Can't wait to return. Thanks, Chuck Taylor

Nice course. not in great shape now, but it looks as though they are in the process of moving most of the tees.

Difficult golf course, particularly from the back (black) tees. No real short par 4's or short par 3's. Pretty generous greens, but can leave you with long, long putts. Bring your 5-wood or rescue club for par 3's and even second shots on par 4's. Course is in great shape. Good sand and rough is consistent and not too difficult to play from.

You will love this course whether you are a high handicap or not.

This is a great course for the value. On the par 5's eagle is obtainable even with a high handicap. The fairways range from very tight to very wide. There are several water hazards if that's your thing. The course is very well maintained through the Army's (MWR) Morale, Welfare and Recreation department.
