Public Golf Course Directory

With another Washington winter behind us, it’s time to shake the sticks out of hibernation and head for the closest set of fairways and greens.

Over the past dozen years, it’s been our mission to provide readers with a thorough and objective assessment of the area’s public facilities.

With a few exceptions, 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 and is located within 60 miles of the District (as the crow flies) or in Ocean City.

We ranked each course on a scale of one to five, based on the creativity and integrity of the layout, the average quality of the course’s conditioning and the overall service and experience provided by the facility.

We understand that there are some layouts we haven’t visited in several years and others we might have missed altogether. If one of your favorites falls into this category, please e-mail us at the following address and we’ll make it a priority to make a visit this season: bdavis [at] washingtontimes.com
