Convinced my gf to come golfing with me and we decided to play here as it was close by. Was charged 10 or 15 dollars for her to ride in the cart with me. For that reason alone I probably wont return. I have no idea why some courses want to charge for someone to accompany them. Frankly, courses should be wanting this activity to occur and not punishing it. I wouldnt be able to play as much if my gf doesnt come with me. Where I live in Maryland, they never charge me for my gf to ride along and...surprise surprise, I keep coming back and spending money. Now, that is not the only reason this golf course is lacking. The first hole has the green under repair and has a make shift green about 20 yards in front of the old green. It is stupid and a waste of a golf hole. No discount or mention of this was provided before I tee off. Because of that alone my gf shouldnt have been charged. The course has a very tight and short layout. The fairways werent in the best shape and the greens clearly havent been cut in a long time as they were as slow as putting on a shag carpet. I assume in the next month or two that will improve. The other problem with this course is that they seem to not care about pace of play. The whole course was backed up for about 6 holes and no one could understand why. We decided to quit around the 15th and drive back to the clubhouse to go home. On our journey through the remainder of the course, we came across a group of 5 that was clearly the cause of the entire course slowdown. How can they let that occur? Awful. I wont be back.
Nothing but good things to say about this place. Being in my early 20s when you walk up to the clubhouse and starter when youre by yourself you cant even get the time of day but everyone there treated me and everyone else I saw with great service. Had an early tee time and got paired with 2 great guys and even the ones that were hanging around before and after us all seemed like really good people, so a great clientele. The course was a little swampy in spots but thats all about the weather because it had rained a lot the few days before and the people there cant control that. Other than that the course was in great condition and was a very fair price for a round on a weekend which is all you can ask for. Would definitely recommend although I cant comment on how busy it would get during prime time and if that would effect anyones experience.
I played the course 6/24/15. It was a beautiful day. So seemingly the entire community of golfers descended on Pohick that afternoon. The pace of play was incredibly slow. I played 9 holes in 2 hours and 45 minutes. I was nearly suicidal at this pace of play. I lay the blame for this squarely on the starter who appeared to make no effort to combine twosomes into foursomes or group a single up with any available 2 or 3somes. Yes they were busy, but the pace could have been better with a little bit more management at the start. My other big gripe is with the clientele, not the course. Why will nobody fix ball marks, rake bunkers and fill their divots with sand? When considering that you WILL BE waiting before hitting your next tee shot, why not fix the ball mark YOU MADE or rake the bunker that YOU HIT FROM?
Only went there for the driving range. The driving range is a steep drop off and tees are useless on a thin mat on concrete. You need your own rubber tee or a much shorter than usual tee with a string and something to anchor it. Otherwise the tee goes down the hill and is lost. The ranges are only useful if youre teeing off downhill all the time. I found it difficult to track ball flight and the range balls were in bad shape with numerous cracked covers. Will not be going back in the near future.

Played Pohick Bay last weekend and enjoyed it. It was challenging and interesting course & layout with a lot of ups and downs and doglegs. The coure was in great shape and looked to be well maintained. I thought the hole desciptions/tips on the scorecards was a nice touch. I did think the $60 was a bit pricey ($45 for greens fee and $15/person for cart). I would definitely play there more often if the rates were a bit more reasonable.
Overall a nice course. Friendly staff. I didnt play well here. The fairways are pretty narrow with hilly drop offs punishing errant shots. Taking out the par 3s, sharp doglegs, narrow sloping fairways with water, and blind shots....there arent too many holes you can hit a driver - and thats just not right. Hilly and narrow greens. I wasnt able to score very well. Just not my kind of layout.
Very challenging course, not crowded on a very nice day, so I am guessing it doesnt get crowded often. The 3 stars are for the course the staff, Is five stars all around. The fairways could use some love, the greens were very nice, but its a narrow hilly course. Very challenging, I would play again for the challenge. But would not make it my go to. Good overall value.
Very expensive. No views. Not very challenging course. Greens were in great condition, but not difficult. No beer cart, had to go inside when making the turn. Crappy cafeteria style food. Definitely NOT a country club!
Nicely located, fairly challenging course. One of the most interesting in the Washington DC area. Steep gullies. Not many water hazards.
This course has a nice layout, with ample opportunities to score. Dont take its kindness for weakness...
The course was in excellent condition, however, the speed of play was unacceptable.
Course was in great shape. Fairways were lush and greens were in good shape.
I am always critical of a sparse ladys room. The course is nice and hilly
Pretty expensive for an okay course, but has a great putting green
Very nice course with a great staff! Would recommend!
Great course, great staff...my go-to course.
Good condition and nice course
Well maintained, not too wet.
