Unfortunately they did not not over seed with rye grass in the winter and this spring there was no grass. So they seeded with Bermuda to compensate and it took some time to come in. It finally came in on the fairways and rough and is in the process of taking over the bent grass areas. Burmuda grass is ugly and difficult to get a ball out of the rough unles it is cut to about 11/2 ". They let the rough get long to a 3" length making it almost impossible to find your ball unless you step on it muchless hit it out of the rough. They also let the fairway Bermuda get too deep which lifts the ball up but reduces compression and distance. The course in in a flood plain and is bordered by the Potomac river so it floods easily and when it gets wet it stays wet! You can loose a shoe when it gets wet if you walk this course. The routing is good and the holes interesting. It is the coures conditions and the switching to Bermuda grass that has ruined this course for me. I've played it several times and now will never play the course! Play Brambleton or Herndon Centennial golf courses in the area. They are compatible in price and in better condition. ALGONKIAN HAS BEEN RUINED BY POOR COURSE MANITENANCE BROUGHT UPON BY BUGET REASONS AND PENNY WISE POUND FOOLISH DECISIONS! A sad story.

They would not play this course again.

The course is still recovering from record rainfall over the last 60 days. That said, No standing water and cart path only on four hole. The course played soft, with little or no roll. The green were quite soft and slooow. Sand traps were freshly raked with no standing water.

They would play this course again.

Booked course on Friday, played Sunday. Notified upon arrival that the back 9 was closed due to excessive rain. Didn’t rain on Saturday. Paid for 9, , and then was told cart path only.

Rename course to Algonkian Wetlands.
