I was only able to play the golf course but what a track! The practice facilities were very nice, but I'm not sure how often they let you hit off of grass at the range. They did a good job lengthening the course too, but the 1st and 10th tees are pretty much on the putting green.
The course itself was beautiful. It feels like a nice mix between Manor Country Club and Kenwood Country Club. Big, mature trees line every hole; the course naturally meanders through the hills; there is a great mix of holes with doglegs left and right; and the greens can be severely sloped and are quick. It's the kind of course you'd need to play several times to find your lines off the tee even though most of it is in front of you. Lots of subtleties to the course and especially on the greens. I also like how walkable the course is. They also have a fleet of pushcarts to use. A lot of the members were out walking it too which is great to see. Definitely a place I would love to play more often. The staff working there were also extremely nice.
I've been a member of Norbeck Country Club for over 8 years and find it to be my home away from home. It is family oriented and being a transplant to the Washington DC area have many of the friends I have are those I've met through the club. The golf course is one of the best I've EVER PLAYED and the food is incredible. Membership is worth every penny especially given the quality of the golf course and the summer pool environment.
I joined Norbeck about 5 yearsago and love it! I've had none of the problems previously mentioned. The staff is terrific, the membership is very friendly, the food is always terrific. Many of my friends openly lobby for an invite to dinner, or a round of golf on the course and lunch in the club's bar. The golf course is always in great shape and I never get tired of playing it, its always challenging.
I was a member of this shabby club for about a year. They continually made billing errors and when I brought one to their attention the clubs "Manager" in no uncertain terms called me a liar. When I reached out to the club President hoping to rectify the situation I received no contact back. The club bookkeeper has continually harassed me to pay a bill i have been disputing for months. This club is disorganized, rude and poorly run. It's no wonder the membership prices are so much cheaper than any other club in the area. This is very much a case of getting what you pay for. I would highly recommend not joining this club.
I just had a wedding here in October and everything was fabulous! Charlotte Kates from Norbeck made everything simple and stress free. She had wonderful ideas and is just the sweetest person to work with.
All my guests were raving about the country club itself as well as the delicious food they could not stop eating! My guests are now finding themselves trying to have an event at Norbeck! You will not regret having your event here. We all had a wonderful time and hope to return to Norbeck for another amazing event.
Thank you Norbeck Country Club especially Charlotte for making our wedding spectacular!!!
