Course Reviews

This course is great for the beginner, or some one who want a short flat course to walk. Pace of play can be very slow due to the amount of beginners playing. If you are strike the ball relatively good, it is not a difficult course tee to green. If you are loose, A couple of holes will bite you. The greens are the challenge. Especially, when the greens are cut and the holes are rotated daily. Decent executive course.

I'm just learning the game so this was a great course for me to test my skills.

I play here often in relation to distance from my home. This is a solid overall executive 9 course for beginners and intermediate golfers. There are some solid challenges for beginners and I would say that it is one of the better 9 hole courses I've played in the DC area. There are some good challenges particulary on holes 3, 4, 5, and 6. The 9th hole is not much of a challenge, but it is fun as well. This course is what it is; nothing spectacular, but a good value for the money and a good course for those 20+ handicap players that are trying to gain confidence and knock strokes off their scores.

The learning course

Henson Creek is a good learning course where the obstacles can still be challenging.
