8/13/2006A half hour north of the Washington Beltway and just off of New Hampshire Avenue lies one of the better fairly new courses in the area. The course meanders through a high-end neighborhood making it extremely difficult to walk. The ride from green to tee on some of the holes appears to be a quarter mile or more. This helps to distinguish the holes from one another and gives an upscale feel to this fairly well maintained course. There were some fairway areas under repair the day we visited. The greens were in very good shape and the service at the course was excellent. Several of the par fives are extremely challenging holes. They are reachable in two by only the longest of the daring hitters. Several par fours such as number ten offer an exceptional risk/reward opportunity to go for a great score. Ayce
10/17/2003I had wanted to try Hampshire Greens for what seems like forever so when our neighborhood monthly outing was scheduled there I looked forward to playing. Located just off MD 650 in upper Montgomery County, Hampshire Greens is a Montgomery County maintained course. It has the upscale look and many undulating and challenging holes but unlike the high dollar upscale courses it showed signs of a lot of play – maybe from not enough maintenance. Don’t get me wrong, it is very “playable”, however most fairways had some divot holes and most greens had unrepaired ball marks along with a few thin spots here and there. The tees were slightly beat up as well, however (now to the good part) it was really a fun course to play. There are challenging par 3’s of mid-long iron length (from the blue tees), and some of the par 5’s require accurate lay-up shots around water guarding the greens. The greens although not in the best of condition, were pretty quick and putted fairly true but on this day they were still recovering from recent aeration that caused a few bumpy putts from my putter. (It obviously wasn’t MY fault!) Another area that was lacking on this date was the attitude of the staff as being standoffish and aloof, but then again, you pay’em and go play golf. Ignore them and get out there and play! Lefty
