Depending on your route and how flexible you are there are lots of good courses.

Tyler State Park, PA
Iron Hill and Brandywine in DE
Rockburn Branch, Patapsco Valley State Park, Scarboro Hills and Seneca Creek State PArk in MD
Giles Run, Hawk Hallow, Loriella, and The Blockhouse in Northern VA

Local guys up there can give you their favorites and more info, but that will get you started.

If you are coming as far as Manassas you should go a few more miles south and hit the Blockhouse in Spotsylvania.

There is also a new multi course The Haymaker in Haymarket, Va which is just a few miles from Manassas. It's $5 for the day. Pohick is a fun short pitch & putt course that you can get several rounds in an afternoon.

Here's the NOVA DG course page.

The Haymaker courses are in CAMP WILLIAM B. SNYDER which is owned by the Boy Scouts. I think they made a deal with the NOVA club. The $5 is a way for the local troops to make some money.

The closes courses to Manassas are Bull Run Regional Park and Stonewall Middle School. Neither are very good, about the same as Burke.

Hope that helps.

Seeing that you are still a beginner and depending on what you like you might want to consider Druid Hill in Baltimore and Calvert. Also depending on when you are playing, Rockburn turns into a disc eating jungle in another month or so, but playing nice right now. Patapsco and Seneca are well worth it. Bring a course map to any of these courses, navigation its a bit tricky the first time.
