Course Reviews


I played this course on a very windy, early March Sunday morning and paid $47 - this, after being quoted $40 over the phone and told that their aeration process would not occur until late March. At least seven greens had been aerated recently and fertilizer, combined with poor aeration caused bumpy and slow greens. The greens that were not aerated were fast. This is a decent course that is always over-priced. Go to other Montgomery County courses like Little Bennett, Hampshire Greens, Rattlewood, and Needwood...even Laytonsville before ever playing this dog-track. I doubt I will ever play it again.

Slow players really hurt the value of this course. Rangers should be more active in regulating play times. Or, keep a good timing distance between teams, please~ By the way, the restroom is very clean.

Course exceeded my expectations. Good conditions for a county course and decent hole variety, especially for a course that from a distance looks like it would just be a cow pasture with a back and forth holes on top of each other.

I am truly amazed at some of the glowing reviews of this course. I have played there once and that is enough. Rangers were none existent and my round was 6+ hours. I had a 20 minute phone conversation with my brother while waiting to tee off on #14.

Now I know it is a muni but I will give you a hint, Montgomery County, MD has 2 or 3 other muni courses where the tee times are spaced every ten minutes and you can get a 4 1/2 hour round in on a Sat. Plus they are far better designs and they make you take something out of your bag besides driver, low wedge, driver, low wedge. Do the homework and you will be please, stay away from this poorly run, poorly maintained course and head just north to find what Montgomery munies really have to offer. Anyone with a 20 or lower handicap will hate the experience at Falls Road.

This is a nice course, good price for the area. Great for working on your iron shots. Pretty flat, but fun to play on. Course is pretty well maintained.

This is my hometown course and it is very reliable, well maintained, and fun to play. Very nice customer service, however food service is a little bit pricy.

Can't beat this newly-renovated public

I'm a member of an exclusive local course, and this is where I tell people to go (Falls Road). I live almost walking distance, so I hit balls here all the time too. Nice staff, you'll meet good people here as well, pretty course with variable terrain, nice grounds, a few interesting challenges though nothing very difficult, nice new club house, cold beer, hardly ever crowded. Can't beat it.
