MD/DC/VA Golfers - Twelve Monkeys Mental Divergence

Two others that pop to mind:

 

Olney Golf Park (has an up charge compared to mats)

 

Little Bennett

 

There are very little grass ranges of any quality within the beltway.  I love me some Olney Golf Park (spend a lot of $$$ there) but the grass range usually struggles.  The short game area is typically in better shape.  

 

Worthington Manor's grass range is usually in good shape but a hike from D.C.

Anyone here a member at Manor in Rockville and/or have you played that course?  The family and I are considering joining.  My Dad played it some 30 years ago and remembers it as being a gem.

Thanks!

Played it and it’s outstanding. Great practice area and club life has a great feel too. 
 

Higher tier than some of the others in the same area. Y’all wont be disappointed

Hi All,

 

Do you have any recommendations club builders in the DMV (preferably NoVa)? I need some new ferrules and a new wedge shaft and (before I decide to do it myself) I want to see if there’s anyone around you all trust. 
 

From a google search I’ve found GolfDoctor-DC (waiting for an email back) and Merrifield. 
 

Thank you! 

 

I can do it for you. Just send me a message.

I'm 26, I'll probably land in Howard County, but in AACo for now. 


Cattail looks pretty ideal, also fairly expensive. 

 

So something similar, but more "bare bones."


Really only care about the golf. I walk and ride. 

If you end up in Howard County, Turf Valley and Hobbits Glen are two good options. Hobbits is definitely cheaper and more "bare bones". im around the same age as you and just relocated to Columbia, so I was in the same boat. Ended up joining Hobbits as Turf Valley and Cattail were more than I was looking for or needed at the time. Hobbits 7 day membership has been fairly good to me so far. No initiation fee, so I can reassess when it's time to renew.

Anyone got an x-stiff hybrid shaft with a .335 tip?

 

What weight you need? I have a RDX Black 80 6.5 from a fairway wood. Not sure how many .335 shafts are marketed/sold as hybrid shafts though.

Olney Golf Park.  If you're looking for Titleist wedges, Brendan is their rep and a good pro.  They used to have Titleist Tuesdays that are great for fitting wedges.  I haven't seen them much lately but I also don't think I have been there on a Tuesday in a while.  But they have two bags of wedges near the counter.  You might have to just buy a bucket of grass tee golf balls to test them out.

Where in the DMV?

 

I've worked with Erika Larkin for the past few years out at Creighton Farms but if you're...deep in the MD shore, that's a full day for you.

 

Lotta MD guys on here too that can give you options.

My son's been getting lesson with the head pro at Lakewood CC, Nick Keefer.  I think several other folks here have gotten lessons from him too.  Junior is really improved in the past several years.

 

The only issue is that scheduling has been difficult.  Since he became head pro this year, he's been much busier, which is understandable.

Gonna go see Ericka end of August for some wedges and putting work. I’m actually in Alexandria, VA.

Isn’t Lakewood a private club? Or can you still get lessons even if you’re not a member?

Vouch for Keefer.

I haven't been out since Covid started but thats more a product of me not having the time to go out there. She was also the one that came to my club and did our Aimpoint class years ago, which I definitely recommend.

Looks like the PGASS in Fairfax is opening next weekend already. For something like that, I've seen/heard nothing about it on local media?

That is a damn good looking course, scenery is fantastic.

 

It feels like playing inside a made-up course in an old TW game. The views are nuts, but the scale of some of the holes is just mind blowing in person. The elevation changes are nuts, and the place is built on top of a large limestone deposit that will be mined in a century. Most of the surroundings are huge lime cliffs and boulders (some as big as a small house).
