Featured Golf Course Review:
Timbers at Troy, The -- Must Play
Review by: Zeek The course is very beautiful. Bentgrass fairways and greens, and with a cart path only policy, very well maintained. Not too challenging and a bit pricey ($108 for two w/cart). A good treat, though when you have the extra cash. I would have ranked it a 4 if it weren't for the price.

Trotters Glen Golf Course -- It isn't crowded - don't go out of your way
Review by: Mike I play this course ONLY because it is fairly close and it is never crowded during the week, play is not delayed and you can get out without a wait. Many holes are wide open on both sides, there isn't a penalty for hitting an errant tee shot on the open holes, you will still have a clear and open approach shot. There are three challenging holes, the 2nd, 16th and 17th, the 2nd is easily the toughest hole on the course. Grass tees on the practice range is nice and rare, most places are mats over concrete. Now for the bad stuff, which outweighs the good. Course maintenace is real bad, easily the worst in the county. Greens are bumpy and each one features at least two types of grass, there may also be weeds growing on the greens which are just mowed short instead of removed, I really can't say for sure, but these greens are really, really bad. In this area, geese are common on all courses, but a couple of the water hole fairways at Trotters are so covered with goose poop that... you would have to see it to believe it. Some advice - BRING WATER! I went out one afternoon last July at 2:30 p.m. and they hadn't put the water out yet, all containers were empty, there have been other summer rounds where about half were empty, really unforgivable in the DC summers, but par for this course. There are 8 full length munis in Montgomery county (3 are truly excellent, all are better than Trotters Glen), I recommend this only to those who live close and are interested in sneaking out for a quick round where just playing is the priority, not the quality of the course. 2 stars only because of the three good holes and grass tees on the driving range.
