5/3/2008Any criticism of lack of grass at his old course would have no validity, as the spring rains brought back the greenery quite well to Pax Greens. The grass is in fact too long everywhere to discern fairway from rough on most holes. Drainage remains a challenge for the course so I would stay away after a rainy stretch of days. The layout is fairly simple once you know some of the quirks, like the last par five #17. The food grilled outside was worth the price on a perfect spring day. For the price this is a good golf course. Ayce
8/25/2006Regarding Patuxent Greens... It's only a couple miles from my house, so I figured I would give it a try on a Friday afternoon. Started out promising. The young guy in the pro shop was very nice and paired me up with another single that was just about to go out. We get out to the first tee, and apart from the tree line, I can not tell where the fairway, rough and tee box begin or end. The fairway is missing 60% of the grass and where there is grass, its not really grass, just weeds. Sodded areas in the fairway that appears to not have been watered for a month. Other parts of the fairway looks like the monster truck series just came through town. The tee box gives you an option...crab grass about 4 inches long or, if you prefer, sand. The greens were just aerated, so I will give them a pass. But they putted fairly true considering. The sand was a little packed and lacking. I was not expecting much for 20 bucks, but this course was not even playable. It looks like someone mowed down a field and placed a flag in some random location. I have played some dog tracks, but this course will not be played by anyone I know. Not even the hackers. I would rather drop 14 bucks at the unlimited range down the street. Steve G.
7/11/2004A Mini-tourney was held on this muggy, storm-threatening Sunday afternoon at Patuxent Greens Country Club. As many locals already know, this track is a good play for a relatively inexpensive fee. Most holes are pretty tight for both driving and approach shots and you’ll need to use proper course management on several holes, including the par 5’s. Watch for water that can come into play on 16 of the 18 holes if you let it – but then again, don’t let it! Make sure to check the tee picture for some holes have water that you can’t see until you get to it (The par 5, #14 comes to mind.) The rough is fairly thick making it tough to find balls hit into it however usually allowing a play out of it. Some of the greens are small and tricky and although not exceptionally fast, they did putt true and allowed for downhill putts to stop near the hole. The bunkers could use some work with several being hard packed and others needing some fresh sand. Patuxent Greens also offers a nice bar/clubhouse as well as a nice deck overlooking the course for that after-round beverage. My partner and I managed to get around the course pretty good this date and won a nice prize (as did everyone else in the tournament!) Lefty
5/29/2004A solid regulation golf course, reasonably priced, near the Md. Beltway—that’s what you get at Patuxent Greens. Fairways and rough were in excellent shape in late May, with the greens showing only a few ball marks despite apparent heavy play. The clubhouse has a beautiful setting overlooking a lake and several holes. A grill was working between the first and tenth tees making it impossible to resist the fragrant fare. Lots of variety in the holes exists at this shot-makers course. Local knowledge is key here particularly with the difficult ninth and seventeenth holes. Anyone who can work the ball can keep the driver in the bag in favor of am ‘managed ‘ round through the woods, creeks, and ponds that abound. Patuxent Greens provides well priced local golf enhanced by a staff that goes out if their way to make sure you enjoy your round. The course is apparently the regular stop for lots of Maryland golfers who enjoy sharpening their games on this attention getting layout. Ayce
4/30/2003I was called out on assignment on this beautiful albeit cloudy spring day. Again, lucky for me, the “assignment” was to play Patuxent Greens in Laurel Maryland. This “muni” had fairways that reminded me of someone’s backyard (a lot of cut grass was present on the fairway) and greens that were not as quick as most others I’ve played. Don’t get me wrong, this is a nice track to play and you’ll find the price is right, but it is not an upscale course - if that’s what you’re looking for. The course itself is actually quite a challenge and was fun to play and has some shots which, if you hit’em right, you’ll remember after the round (you know the type!). Most holes are pretty tight for both driving and approach shots with water that could come into play on 16 of the 18 holes. The rough was pretty thick (isn’t that what it’s supposed to be) and made it tough to find balls hit into it. Some of the greens are small with little room for error and the greens can be tricky. The bunkers weren’t in the best shape on this date with several being hard packed and others having grass and weeds growing at the edges, however if you don’t hit into them, they’re not a concern! For the money, this was a good track. Patuxent Greens also offers a nice bar/clubhouse as well as a nice deck overlooking the course for that after-round beverage. Lefty
