The DC metro area is quite large, covering portions of both Maryland and Virginia. The area is filled with golf courses, but many of them private. There are great public courses too if you know where to look, so here are the 5 best public golf courses in the DC area.
Northwest Golf Course: One of the most difficult 18 holes in the DMV, along with a short and simple practice course called "the inside 9" make up Northwest's 27 holes of golf. Located in Sliver Spring, MD, the course is in a great location for anyone living in the DC, Bethesda, Silver Spring, or Rockville areas. The course also offers heavily discounted rates during non-peak hours, so is actually one of the more affordable courses in the area. It's also a member of Montgomery County Golf, which has eight other courses to enjoy.
