A Guide to the area's public golf courses

Over the past eight years, we've gone through five sets of clubs and a dozen different swings sampling the region's daily-fee offerings. Our mission was to provide readers with the most objective and thorough assessment of the area's public courses.
The courses below met the four criteria we considered when compiling our list of places you can play. Each is open to the public, has 18 holes, measures 6,200 yards or more from the back tees (with a few exceptions) and is located within roughly 60 miles of the District (as the crow flies) or in Ocean City, Md.
We ranked each course on a scale of one to five. The courses are listed alphabetically, and the corresponding ratings are based on the creativity and integrity of the layout, the average quality of the course's manicuring and conditioning, and the overall service and experience provided by the facility. The fee parameters are for 18 holes during prime time only. The low end is the peak season weekday walking rate, and the high end is the weekend/holiday riding rate.
