8/26/2005It had been quite a while since I had ventured down to the bottom of the Beltway and visited Potomac Ridge. Since my last visit, they’ve added another nine holes and the course has improved dramatically. A neighbor of mine invited me down to a charity outing for Providence Hospital and although I didn’t get a chance to play course outright (4 man scramble), I can report that it is in excellent shape from tees to green to clubhouse. The course has definitely “grown up” since its early days. We played the “Meadow” and “Hollow” nines which were the original 18 holes (from what I recall). The “Ridge” par 37 looked equally as nice and challenging. The fairways were excellent (a few had been recently aerated but, hey you gotta do it to keep the pristine conditions). The greens rolled very nice but were deceptively tricky - I actually lost a bet on which way a putt would break - so make sure you take a good look at it before playing it left to right! The pro shop is well stocked and staff is very helpful and friendly. I would rate this course a “must play” and great addition to the Atlantic Golf Stable! Lefty
6/27/2002The Waggle.com team finally got out to preview Potomac Ridge on a day when we just beat the late afternoon thunderstorm. This is one of Atlantic Golf’s courses along with Queenstown and South River. We rate the difficulty factor for Potomac Ridge about the same as Queenstown as not terribly difficult but yet challenging enough. The condition of the greens, fairways, and bunkers were good enough but not as pristine as they could be. We actually thought the greens were kind of slow and were not that difficult to putt. The hot summer weather may be taking its toll. The course itself is mostly flat and not extremely long measuring 6600 plus from the tips (par 71). Errant shots are punished somewhat but you usually have a chance to save the hole. You do need to be accurate off the tee or plan on being “in jail” and chipping out. On selected holes you can hit long irons to keep in play and still make the green in regulation. We thought the 129 slope from the blue tees was more difficult than the course actually played, but then again, that’s just our opinion. Try it and decide for yourself. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed as this is a fun course to play. Bogeyman/Lefty
10/22/2001The Waggle.com team ventured out to Potomac Ridge to review this course for the players guide. Unfortunately, they were aerating the front nine so we played the back twice, however we will get back ASAP to check out the front. We were treated to excellent service and friendly staff, but that’s not the best – wait until you get to the course. This course (at least the back nine) was in great shape (we wondered why they were aerating) as the greens, fairways and tee boxes were all well maintained and groomed. The course is challenging and demands accuracy off the tee as well as on your approach shots. The greens are quick but not that fast that you can’t stop putts from rolling off the green (which we’ve all found at one time or another, to be quite frustrating!). Our only regret was not getting to play the front nine, however on the plus side, that means we’ll have to play there again to complete the Waggle.com players guide. Lefty
