I am going to be able to get in 1 round this week while I'm up in the Rockville, MD area.  

I can get on the following courses

- Chantilly National Golf & CC
- Piedmont Club - Haymarket
- River Creek Club

Which would you suggest?  Or is there another course nearby you'd suggest?

Thanks.

Needwood

Blue Mash

Redgate (don't know about the conditions)

Little Bennet

PB Dye

Worthington Manor

Cluster Spires

Whiskey Creek


A lot of good golf courses around there. However, if you can get on a private course than why venture out?

Worthing Manor and Cluster Spires are outstanding courses. PB dye was in good condition and has great views.

Blue Mash is probably your best bet, plus it's the closest to Rockville.

Thanks.

Of the ones you listed - River Creek Country Club by far.   It's a fun course and very playable.   It's about 30 minutes away in McLean,VA...very easy to get to.

In Rockville - the ones listed above are excellent public courses...all challenging and good tests of golf.  

Other suggestions:  you seem to have a connection with some private clubs down here - there are several others that are very nice - and much closer than two of the ones you've mentioned, or about the same or closer than many of the publics mentioned:

Woodmont Country Club (where Shigeki Maruyama shot 58 at a US Open qualifier) - right in Rockville


10 mins away from Rockville - all are excellent golf courses - all of them "trade" with other pros so see if your pro can make a couple calls?:
Bethesda Country Club
Congressional (Blue is closed for the year - only Gold is open)
TPC Potomac/Avenel (2 greens are closed and being reshaped)
Columbia Country Club
Chevy Chase CC
Burning Tree Club
Lakewood Country Club (Rees Jones redesign - like Congressional)

30 mins away:
River Creek
Trump National


But in truth I think you'll love River Creek - it's a lot of fun.

Thanks!  Those look like some good courses.

I will probably go with one of these because they are closer.
