Voted Best Golf Course in Montgomery County by Montgomery Gazette readers, and listed as one of the Top Ten Rated Courses in the Washington Area by Golf Advisor, Blue Mash Golf Course in Gaithersburg, MD is less than 15 minutes from Rockville and Gaithersburg downtowns, 20 minutes from Germantown, and less than 10 minutes from Olney. With access via Route 108, Route 200 Inter-County Connector, I-95 and I-270, Blue Mash is conveniently accessible to Washington D.C., Frederick, Baltimore and Northern Virginia. Designed by world renown architect Arthur Hills, Blue Mash features a mix of links style, parkland, wooded, and water holes. There are no forced carries so it is manageable for beginners and high handicap golfers, and low handicap golfers will find its length from the back tees, strategic bunker placement, and devilish, well protected greens plenty of challenge. The practice facility at Blue Mash features a 10,000 square foot putting green, all grass tee driving range, and short game practice area, all supported by world-class instructors. Blue Mash Golf Course gets its name from the property’s original name “Blue Marsh,” referring to the blue clay of the marshy, thickly wooded land. Pronounced colloquially “Blue Mash,” the land was inhabited by freed slaves who also made it a stop on the Underground Railroad, hiding runaway slaves on their way north. The blue stars and gold stripes logo of the Laytonsville golf course refers to the property’s historic function as a stop on the long journey to freedom.
