Rock Creek Golf Course

Description

Located just 15 minutes from the White House, historic Rock Golf Course is part of the National Park System.

Rock Creek Golf Course provides an affordable and accessible facility for park visitors of all ages. While being the home to many beginning golfers and seniors, Rock Creek’s tight fairways and dramatic elevation changes make it a challenging and enjoyable course for the experienced golfer as well. Rock Creek's short 4886 yard layout of par 3's and 4's might not look all that difficult on a scorecard, but this course has bite. The front nine consists of short par 4's and medium to long par 3's; just enough to get you warmed up for the back. The back nine is a true test of accuracy and precision. Dense woods on either side of the narrow fairways will show how much confidence you have in your driver. Uneven lies, large elevation changes and approach shots into postage stamp greens combine to force risk/reward decisions on every shot.

Rock Creek Golf Course is also known for the many species of plant and animal wildlife that can be found there, including deer, wild turkey, raccoon, foxes, hawks and even the occasional coyote. Rock Creek has been recognized by Audubon International for its environmentally friendly maintenance practices. Rock Creek Golf Course was named one of Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play in 2008. A full-service golf facility, Rock Creek G.C. offers affordable and accessible recreation to local residents and tourists in a unique setting.
