Falls Road Golf Course, Potomac

#5 of 8 in Outdoors in Montgomery County
Golf Course · Hidden Gem · Outdoor Activity
Falls Road Golf Course was completed in 1961 on 150 acres of former farmland east of the Village of Potomac. The layout offers scenic rolling terrain with 4 sets of tees, generous fairways, and large greens. It has a great mix of holes: the front nine is a parkland type course and the back nine is more tree lined. The course measures slightly more than 6100 yards from the back tees and plays to a par 70: it provides an enjoyable test of golf for players of all abilities.

  • I have played the course at Falls Road many times as it is incredibly well located and convenient (I wonder what developers think when they drive by that many prime acres in the middle of...  more »
  • This is a nice public course. It’s well maintained and good for average golfers. It offers some challenging holes but nothing intimidating.  more »
  • Less than impressed by the overall experience. I got there early so I could warm up at the driving range. Went to pay for everything, but there systems were down. I am a believer that these things happen, so I just brushed it off. Went out at my tee time, and the overall care of the greens was poor. There were so many divot holes on each green, you could spend a day just repairing those. They didn't look like fresh divots either, they were dry. At the end of the day, I went back to the clubhouse so I could get my receipt, but sadly they were closed. When I call the next morning, they shredded everything and could not provide me any details on my transaction. Between the greens and the systems, it was enough of a bad experience that I don't think I will be returning.
  • Cons: Lack of pitching area. Putting area doesn't have actual holes cut. Pros: mats, balls, and tees in great shape. Hitting field is well maintained with sound distance markers. Grill and club house are cozy. Staff is friendly. Prices are decent for the area. Overall: 4 1/2 stars
