“I Just Love This Course...”

Falls Road Golf Course
Ranked #6 of 12 things to do in Potomac
Attraction details
Reviewed 5 November 2013

...despite the frustrations and mis-strokes that often mar my efforts at Falls Road. But I have played here for years and consider it my home course. It's short, which is fine by me, some of the fairways tilt maddingly, requiring precision placement, and some pin positions are reminiscent of a mini-golf challenge. But I like it. A lot.

As the Montgomery County course most conveniently located to Bethesda, Potomac and the closer in suburbs, Falls Road can be a very busy course on the weekends. The course itself is generally in pretty good shape, and there are a variety of holes that provide for an interesting round to the average golfer. Go during the week if you want to keep your round under 5 hours.

This course is moderately difficult, has always been in good shape when I've played it, and is playable at a reasonable price. Montgomery County municipal courses are very well maintained - you might mistake some for a few private courses.

Falls Road is an adequate public track, but its super convenient location means its always crowded and there is little management for the starter or marshals to help play. It has gotten pricey during prime time for what it is, but I guess like all real estate - location, location.

$59 for a round on a saturday afternoon. lets just put that out there. those of you from other parts of the country might think this is steep for a public course but you have to remember you are in/near DC. The place can be crowded but this was my first time out there. the starters are very aggressive. they want you loaded up a 5-10 minutes before your tee time. which is great. some players seem to think they do not have to load up until their tee time. we had a foursome in front of us ( we were a threesome) so we just slowed our play to not run up on them. had a decent pleasant round and did not feel pressured to move along or slow down any further. the driving range was packed and it is not very big. before you buy your token inside i would have somebody go out and save you a box or get in line.

greens were okay, nothing to write home about. it is very hard to get into trouble on this course unless you really hit it way out of bounds. not much water involved and very few woods. there are a couple of holes that have a tree smack dab in the middle of the fairway.

at the turn the hot dog lady had a couple of grills going and you could stop and order and enjoy your dog while waiting for the group in front of you to tee off. you can even pull up to the 9th, order your food and go putt out. by the time you get back your food is ready. great hot dog. great cart girl as well. saw her at least twice on each 9 holes.
