It’s easy to find a great golf course in and around Washington, D.C. Relatively temperate climates mean that you can golf year-round, and the wealth of public courses in the area means that it’s easy to get on the links whenever you want. Here are a few of our favorites:
Rock Creek Golf Course is located inside in the confines of Rock Creek Park. This public course offers a real refuge from city life. In addition to 18 holes of golf, the course has a 3,500 square foot putting green, pro shop, snack cart and beverage cart.
East Potomac Golf Course is one of the city’s most well-known courses and is ideally located just minutes from the National Mall and monuments. In addition to heated driving ranges (also a great place for golf lessons) the course actually offers three unique areas, an 18-hole Blue Course and two 9-hole courses, dubbed Red and White for their varying levels of difficulty. You’ll also find a 3-hole practice course, mini golf course, pro shop and restaurant.
