Played this course for the first time last week....The up and downs on this course is amazing....i had intended to walk the course but after the first 9 was out of gas! Had a good time...though.
When introduced to Pohick this year (09) I was satisfied and pleased overall. It presents a nice challenge with a mixture of contoured fairways and greens. Fairly expensive ($60 for w/e w/ cart)where the maintenence could be better. Basically if you run a few yards off of the fairway the first cut is not mowed low enough to get a fair shot...so basically hit your fairways. Its not like the heavily wooded surroundings is not good enough of a challenge. The rough is ROUGH. If they could maintain the first cut it would be a great course which will help to speed play tremendously especially for high handicappers.
pohick bay is sweet. it's almost as good as a classic private club (no muni's really compare to those though) challenging... design is somewhat spectacular, especially the tiered par 3's which i think there is 3 of? i was impressed and can't wait to play there again. best driving range i've come across. course layout keeps you guessing "whats next"?
