East Potomac Red Course

The East Potomac Red Course is one of three courses found in Southwest DC at East Potomac Park. It a 9-hole par-three course tailor made for beginners. It is mostly wide open and contains little in the way of hazards. If you are short on time and/or money, is a good way to get in some work. The course also provides nice views of the Washington Monument and thus may be attractive to those visiting the city.

Additional Notes: 

The East Potomac Red Course is one of three courses at East Potomac Park. It has 9, par three holes. The rough is not very long and the course is pretty open with no water, making it great for beginners. More experienced golfers may enjoy the opportunity to work on their short games. I think it is pretty fun to play, but probably is not challenging enough to engage low handicappers.

There are no distance markers, not surprising given the short length of the course. The sand traps had some water in them a couple of days after rain.

There is one water cooler on the 5th hole and a full-service grill located at the course. There is a nice covered area to eat and have a beer after your round.
