Haven't played Bowie for 7-8 years. I've always liked the layout--old traditional-type course with lots of mature trees and narrow chutes. However, it was in pretty bad shape. Hard pan dirt patches throughout the rough and even in some of the fairways. You'd hit the middle of the fairway, but lose the ball because it hit a hard pan patch, bounce right, and into the collection of leaves. The greens were pretty good, but I had forgotten how the edges of the greens run off--on the majority of the greens. And, some of today's pins were on the edges, so if you got past the hole it would roll off. Bunkers were thin on sand, and the cart paths are in bad need of repair for all the tree roots. We only paid $25 with the Tee Time Book, so can't complain too much; however, if a little TLC was put into this course, they might be able to bring it back to earlier years. The club house is another story...needs to be destroyed and rebuilt. It will probably be another 8 years before I go back...just wanted to play someplace close.

The staff at Bowie is always very helpful and nice. The starter/greeter came out to the parking lot with a smile to assist with bags. The pro shop and snack bar folks were warm and inviting. The course, unfortunately, is still mediocre. Crabgrass in the fairways, bunkers needed raking and had eroding sidewalls, and cart paths are in need of repair--some were just lumpy bumpy dirt. The greens were a little long and slow, but in decent shape. This is not a country club, so don't expect it; however, it does provide a friendly atmosphere, affordable rates ($29 w/cart), and a decent pace of play. Although not overly challenging, it will provide an opportunity to work on shaping your shots on doglegs and around trees.

Haven't played at Bowie in probably eight or more years, so didn't know what to expect. Played a tournament round this morning and it wasn't too bad. The fairways are a bit thin in places, but there is certainly grass to hit off of. (I had been told the fairways had no grass, which wasn't at all true.) Bunkers were very nice, although a couple had some grass growing but the sand was nice. Hold #10--the entire hole--is GIR, but it still isn't too bad. The greens were hard, so hard to stick--balls would bounce high and roll off the green. However, putting was extremely slow...tough to get the putt to the hole. Nice staff, accommodating and pleasant. This is a pretty short tract--the tips are only 6142--but lots of doglegs so can give you some challenging looks. Don't know what the regular rack rate is, but I only paid cart fee due to the tournament series between courses, so it was a good deal and enjoyable--tournament round was only 4 hours.

Course is a fun short track. Conditions are a bit rough, as it is getting allot of play now that they lowered prices. Pace of play is the one thing they need to work on at this course, as it was slow even in the middle of the week, with weekend rounds lasting 5.5+ hours at times. For the price it is in good shape, and a fun play, just don't expect it to be quick.

To be fair, I played this course during a drought. The greens were in poor condition as were the fairways and tee boxes. Staff was friendly. The course layout is average, not exactly interesting.

I love coming back to this course. The turf conditions are excellent, and the course is very playable. The greens are challenging to read and putt. The staff is always pleasant, and the fee is very reasonable.

Course is a mature course with large trees lining the fairways. It is in good shape for fall. Sand traps are crusty and some greens are a little spotty, but overall it is a fun course to play. Excellent snack bar and staff is very cordial.

Looks were deceiving. Was disappointed when I pulled up to the course with the overall appearance. The driving range was in terrible shape, and you weren't allowed to use any woods. However, the course was really in pretty good shape, and it turned out to be a pretty fun round. Very open layout, not overly challenging. I look forward to going back and playing there when it's not rainy.

Played an afternoon round yesterday. The course was in excellent condition. Fairways were great and the greens were as well. The bunkers could use some attention but, overall, I have no complaints. For $38, it's a good, solid round of golf. It's challenging but it won't beat you down.

Excellent conditions all over the course. The greens had been rolled and were smooth. Fairways were firm and tight. Customer service was top notch.
