The fairways were atrocious at best. More crabgrass and burn spots than actual grass. Greens are pitted and had weeds rolled into them. Wont be coming back for another round.

Pohick Bay is a very interesting golf course in terms of layout and challenge. 50 dollars with a cart seems to be a reasonable charge for this area of the country, but not exactly a great deal either for the condition of the course. If it was pristine, I would expect to pay 75 for the round. That said, I would play here again under the current conditions below at around $40-45 and not be disappointed.

It appears to me that it has been a tough summer for the area courses without the resources to adjust to the conditions. If you play here in the next 30 days from my review, expect fairways to be of mixed grass and conditions, greens to be mostly nice, roll well (although a touch slow), but pockmarked from the increasingly terrible offense of not repairing ball marks (shame on you, all of the groups that preceded me for the week), this could be mitigated by changing cup locations more frequently - as this appeared to be only a weekly occurrence here based on the conditions of the cup (but maybe the patronage is just rough on the course). The areas surrounding the greens need considerable work - a lot of bare areas and thin covering can be found immediately adjacent to many greens, and again, lots of mixed grass types or invasive grasses being allowed to take over in some areas. The chipping and putting greens are not bad at all, offering plenty of room to work on your short game. The driving range was once a beauty, offering shade and a reasonable amount of stations, however the hitting mats saw their last days of usefulness about 2 years ago, and while I may have missed it, didn't see any turf hitting areas.
The staff and starters were fantastic, friendly and very helpful.
I played midday on a Thursday and the course was relatively empty. I would expect on a weekend this course to be busy, and a bit slow because the layout and blind tee shots makes it difficult to determine when it is safe to play on.
Final Tip - use a GPS app to see the hole from the tee box - and if you can't see the rough from the tee, assume it slopes away from the center of the fairway.

Enjoyed the round at Pohick. Not a long course but challenging. Tee boxes and fringe were shaggy. Greens were in average condition. Could use some work. Need local knowledge on several holes. I would go back.
