Patch readers in Potomac, Bethesda, Rockville and Chevy Chase chose (in Rockville) as their favorite local public golf course in this past week's .
RedGate beat out Needwood Golf Course (in Rockville) and Falls Road Golf Course (in Potomac), winning 52 percent of the vote, while Needwood won only 33 percent of the vote and Falls Road won only 13 percent of the vote.
"Of these 3 Redgate is probably the best. Others in the area are Laytonsville, Hampshire Greens and Northwest Park. All 3 of those 'might' be better than any of the 3 listed," Patch user commented.
"Redgate is not neutral ground. You either love it or hate it; it's a blind shot course in some places, and serious walking. I love it, but many complain," Patch user commented.
"Northwest is surprisingly nice. Falls Rd. is way better than it used to be, and they're doing more to it all the time. The range is now open until 11 pm, good move. Needwood's Executive 9-hole is a great place to introduce kids to golf," added.
