Something has happened at Potomac Ridge and not in a good way. For example one of the holes, the cup edge was either chewed by a goose or somebody put in their putter to retrieve a ball and caved in the edge of the cup. The tee boxes were in terrible shape, the grounds not deserving of the fees asked.

Staff from check-in to course was poor, and there was no starter. I had inquired about their membership and received an e-mail saying, "we received your e-mail, we'll get back to you". The counter girl was busy playing with her Smartphone and didn't serve us right away. I made a reservation through the internet with a discount and upon arriving said it wasn't in their computer...and argued with me about it. Seriously, if I knew about the discount you should have just given it to me-I pushed my tee time back half an hour to meet the requirements and it was a significant discount for a later start time--and the counter person knew it, yet wouldn't budge. The manager wasn't in (nor was he in when we returned). I ended up not complaining as it wasn't worth it and I'll take my business elsewhere.

The greens in general weren't in very good shape at all. This used to be one of my favorite courses and have done several company outings here, I don't know what happened.

The course itself is fun and has some interesting shots, but with the poor course maintenance there are far better deals to be had in the DC area.

Oh, one more nitpick, the watering crew was right ahead of us and stayed ahead of us for four holes. They kept on watering while we hit our approach shots - didn't turn off the hoses, water kept running, and they stood right on the edge of the green. Serioulsy? You couldn't wait to water the greens after we played through and then stayed behind us? There was no one playing behind us (and should have been an indicator of why there was no one - the course has gone downhill).

Hopefully next year I can write a better review, but for now there are better options and far better deals that are just as close, such as Osprey in Occoquan.

I really think this course has gotten an undeserved bad reputation in the area. People buy a teetime on golfnow.com, drive allll the way out to Waldorf, play poorly, and leave with a bad taste in their mouths.

I can't believe it only has 2 stars at the time I'm writing this review. I suppose conditions could have been worse in the past, but I really enjoyed my round here when I played on July 31, 2011 with 3 friends.

First of all, if you cannot hit the ball straight consistently, do not play here. You will lose a ton of golf balls and hit many trees. It seems like 75% of the holes are tree-lined. The course is not long at all, but it makes up for the length everywhere else.

A LOT of blind shots, a lot of undulation, a lot of shot-making, and difficult greens make this course very tough. I'm a 5 handicap and shot a 90 here playing decent.

Enough rambling- if you can get a good deal on golfnow.com like less than $50 per person on a weekend, then try it out. I don't think it's nearly as bad as some have claimed, but it is definitely difficult.

Amenities - Nice club house; well stocked and decent snack bar. Staff was extremely friendly and accomodating.

Difficulty - I found this to be a difficult course. Could not get a feel for the greens as they were very fast and reading breaks was difficult. Plenty of blind shots too. Keep the ball in the fairway because the rough can be difficult.

Maintenance - The course was in pretty good condition considering the extremely hot and extremely dry summer Southern Maryland had this year. The fairways were in excellent condition as were most of the greens. Tee boxes on the other hand had several that need work. Yardage markers were very difficult to find so anyone not familiar with this course or without a GPS will waste a lot of their time looking for them. I flew the green several times and came up short several times because the distance was purely guess work.

Scenery - If your looking to play a course with lots of scenery, then this course is for you. Seems like the entire front nine was cut out of the woods. With winding cart paths, numerous hills and plenty of wildlife it is a beautiful setting.
Caution: Do not recommend walking this course.
Value - I played this course during the week so I could use my TeeTime Golf Pass which got me 18 w/cart for $35.00. This course is normally $49 so not bad. I am scheduled to play here again on the weekend but am not sure I am willing to pay the $57. Of course, in my opinion, no Southern Maryland course should be priced over $45.00 on a weekend or $30 during the week.

Overall - This is a nice course with a friendly staff, a well stocked pro shop, decent snack bar and beautiful scenery. With the exception of the problem with the yard markers stated previously, and being just a bit over priced this is good course. Again, improve the yard markers or provide carts with GPS.

We played this course yesterday, 9/21/07. The course is not worthy of $68.00. Even though the fairways were in better shape then what Dave_C1 experienced, the course is a $40-$45 maximum! The greens had alot to be desired. I live in Southern MD (Lex Park / L/town) area. Suggest you travel the extra 45-60 minutes and play some of the courses in Fredericksburg, VA area, i.e. The Gauntlet or Cannon Ridge. Gauntlet is $55 + tax Fri/Sat/Sun, and is well worth the money. C/Ridge is running a September special, ACTDU/Retired Military & US Govt or Contractors pay $49, others $69. A smoking deal for that course. Augustine is another fine course in that area. Avid golfers, don't waste your money, try these other courses mentioned.

DO NOT PLAY; Overpriced and fairways are dead

I played this place, paid over $70 for the worst fairways I've ever played on. They are reconstructing the fairways and you'd think they would give you a break on the price but no...

You were warned.
