This is a very challenging course not only because of it's design, but it also, I believe, it's the longest public course in Montgomery County at 7200 Yds. The course has generous fairways and greens but that doesn't make it an easy course. There a many pitfalls throughout the course that keeps you thinking and it will really challenge your... More

Northwest Park is an old style golf course. No tricks, no gimmicks. Just long, mostly straight, and with bunkering guarding the greens. Year in and year out it is in great shape, despite the large amount of play that it gets. It's definitely the best of the Montgomery County public courses. The fact that the course is so great and...

We play here at least once a month. The course is the longest and widest course in the Montgomery County Public golf system. The staff is sometime condescending to female golfers but once we get on the course the starter and staff are good.

This is an ok course. Usually in pretty good shape. Long but no real trouble. But $75!! Not worth it.

You can choose their "inside 9" for a quicker game. You can play the whole 9 in less than 3 hours without a cart. There is usually a quick pace of play.

The inner nine is great for a challenged golfer. But, I do enjoy myself.

This is a county owned and managed course. Course is actually kept up pretty well. It tends to be slow play however, and the so called marshals there don't do much.

Northwest Park is another of the Montgomery County golf courses, but unlike Little Bennett, it is kept in wonderful condition. Not only are the fairways and greens usually in tip-top shape, they've redone the bunkers such that they have real sand and good drainage. This is a classic style course. Brutal length on many of the par threes and par... More
