The majority of Poolesville's layout is straight ahead with little in regards to elevation changes. Most fairways are lined with sparse trees, and when we played the course in April (2013), the rough was short. These two factors make it relatively easy to find errant tee shots. A few holes have water hazards, but nothing too treacherous.
Poolesville's most challenging aspect, when we played, was without question the greens. They were not only fast, but contained many slopes. As always we recommend that you get to the course early to practice your putting and acclimate yourself to the greens speed.
Well placed bunkers dot the fairways. Take heed when prepping your tee shots.
There are three collections of flag positions, A, B, and C, labeled on the scorecard. A sign located on the first hole gives you the location.
There are stakes marking 150 yds to the center of the green. Additional markers can be found in the ground.
When we played the course, it was in very good condition. The bunkers were well manicured, the greens were smooth, and the fairways cut trim. A few tee boxes were lacking lush grass, but nothing too displeasing.
The water cooler frequency was reasonable; every 5 holes or so.
