This course isn't the most exciting. It is as flat as they come and all the holes, for the most part, are straight ahead. However, the course is uniquely Washington. With the views of the Monument, military helicopters flying by, and airplane traffic from Reagan National Airport, it is hard to forget that you are in the Nation's Capital.
The course is reasonably priced and is generally in pretty good shape. Many public courses deteriorate rapidly in the summer heat, but the East Potomac Blue Course tends to do pretty well. The greens are usually in decent shape, as well as the fairways. The tee boxes, however, almost always could use some work.
The course is heavily played. Do not show up in July on a Saturday afternoon and expect to play a four hour round.
For the most part, the course is sparsely populated with trees. However, you could be chipping back into fairway a lot if your tee shots are too far off their mark. There is not much to speak of in terms of water.
Flags in the front of the green are red, in the middle are white, and in the back are blue. This is important, as many of the greens are large. There are also stakes along the fairway to mark 100, 150, and 200 yards from the center of the green.
They could use a few more water coolers, so bring a bottle to fill up.
There is a nice covered area to eat and have a beer after your round. There is also a grill for hot food and snacks.
