5 STAR - MUST PLAY
My new favorite track in the DMV. OUTSTANDING! Immaculate conditions. Layout offers a variety of holes. I really enjoyed the challenge. Fast greens with some undulations, but nothing to the point where its not fair. This track is very long so you should probably tee it forward from your usual tees. Can't wait to come back.

Great Day at Laurel Hill
The golf course is very challenging and an excellent choice for your golf experience. You can't beat this course for a PUBLIC golf experience.

Great course and fantastic staff. Great value for a well manicured course. Some holes provided difficulty and other holes just wide open to swing away. Will definitely play again at this course.

Play from the Appropriate Tees
A well-designed course, LHGC takes advantage of the existing terrain and elevation changes. The course can play from about 5,500 to over 7,000 yards, so it is IMPERATIVE that golfers play from the appropriate tees.
I saw a foursome playing from the Blue tees; these guys should have been playing a pitch-and-putt course!
The pace-of-play issues are invariably because a couple of groups are playing from tees that are beyond their abilities.
I regularly play form the Gold tees (6,000 yards) in the early season and Blue tees (6.700 yards) in the warmer weather.
Hat-tip to the course superintendent and his groundskeepers for maintaining the course in good condition all year long. Last year's bunker renovation project was a huge success, in my mind.
Now, if golfers would only replace or repair their divots in the fairways, rake the bunkers and fix ball marks on the greens ...
The staff is pleasant and the marshals very engaging and helpful.
I can see why the USGA selected Laurel Hill for the 2013 Public Links Championship!

A round of expectations.
I was underwhelmed by the staff. It started with the lack of a welcome, through the check in, the starter, and ended with a grumpy reception at the grumpy reception at the club house. . The friendliest staff interaction was at the bar.
The course is wonderfully challenging. The fairways and greens were in great need of players filling divots and repairing ball marks.

Good Course, but overpriced
Very nice course. The staff was also incredibly friendly, helpful, and flexible. There also was a relatively good pace of play.
That said, the course is quite pricey for a municipal course. If I hadn't received a big discount, I never would have played the course.
