SHOCK ALERT: The Blue Course is in Amazing Shape.

Cost: Weekday Rates are $27.00 18 Hole Blue Course Additional $15.00 Riding Cart

Greens: I was so surprised on how fast and well maintained the greens are. With all the rounds this course endures, its tough to keep this up during the entire season

Fairways: The New Superintendent has reshaped the fairways and cut back on the rough. This will enable players of all caliber to enjoy a round of golf without searching or hacking his/her way out of the thick rough. It also gives a player a different angle of attack into the greens

Pro Shop: Has everything a Golfer will need for a Round of Golf

Course Staff: Starters and Marshals: Very nice people and will help you with all your needs

Food Services: Great Burgers... Several years ago, East Potomac Grill received a Food critiques award for price and taste for its burgers... They continue to meet or exceed those goals with other things on the menu.

Driving Range: Full Range with 2 decks

Teaching Facility: They have several teaching professionals on hand to help you in your game

I am not from the DC area and did not know what to expect from this course. This is one of the easier courses I have played at; mostly wide fairways and very flat greens. The fairways were in pretty good condition, but many of the greens were covered with divots, especially on hole 4. The greens were also very slow, but it did rain in the early morning. The 9th hole was very distracting; the green is right by the putting green and pro shop and it was very loud while putting. Actually, the hole course was very loud from all of the planes taking off and landing at the nearby Reagan Airport. The double decker driving range was pretty cool and you get 50 balls for $7. I paid $47 for 18 and a cart, which I think was way too much for the quality of the course. Apparently on the weekdays you can play nine holes for only $10 (a great deal and worth the cost). Overall, the course was very busy and not in great condition. i think this would be a great weekday course, but somewhere I would avoid on the weekends.

The good news is that the greens at East Potomac have never been better-a little slow, but otherwise in great shape. I had expected that the fairways might be in a little better condition, but with all the rain maybe they've just been under water too much! You can't beat $16 walking on a weekday, and, once we remembered how to play golf, the back nine was enough to bring us back again...to a round of golf that is! My partner remarked that once again we had played in every month in 2008...

After several months of avoiding East Potomac Golf Course because of the extensive damage caused by the Greens Crew, time and attention has restored the greens back again. The greens are slow and still soft, with patches of replacement turf taking hold. For those golfers looking to play a 3 1/2 hour round of golf, head down to East Potomac soon or before the crowds realize things are back to normal.

This course has a chemical problem. Greens don't get eaten up by Bentgrass. Someone made a huge mistake and inadvertently destroyed the greens.

Many of the fairways have been in poor condition for a very long time because the contractor refuses to invest it's profits in systemic drainage. The driving range has long been a huge profit center. The bi-annual paint job and replacement of mats is a far cry from what is really needed. There are no accurate yardage markers, heaters should be installed in all of the lower bays, how much would it cost to walk off the yardage, use a laser, or access Skycaddie, to provide the thousands of guests with a bit more than just the thrill of smashing a ball into an artificial (worn and scrubby) range? The cafe is great, the Pro shop is tiny but adequate, staff are very pleasant and helpful, and overly apologetic about the current condition of the course.

However, the contractor/management is trying to push the evidence of inadequacies onto everything but itself.

Maybe it's time for the New DC Mayor to consolidate commercial sports oversight/management in the District and negotiate a deal with Interior to take over the three courses and bring in a professional course management company. Afterall, these courses together have the highest amount of traffic of any in-town golf course in America.

We can only hope

Sources close to Course Management, said the Course Manager made some major mistakes in trying to control Green Fungus and weeds. All the Greens on the Blue and White Course are damaged. They are giving a 10% discount to play?

The course was in better condition than it had been in a while. The greens were very consistent throughout the round. The fairways, as always, were closer to short rough. But it still a real good value considering the cost of the green fees.
