Course Conditions as of 6/29/2020
Conditions are really bad on some holes, but they are technically still playable if you have the fortitude to persevere in finding the tees and baskets. Do NOT try to play without the pdf map on DGCR. The tee locatons on UDisc are sometimes wrong. DO NOT play hole 1 because there is now an all glass building in the middle of the fairway!! This hole MUST be moved somewhere else. Baskets 3 & 4 are the middle of waist high weeds and thorns that are growing up into the baskets. ***Basket 7 is missing.**

Description: Plays through the campus and around the football and soccer fields of Potomac Middle School. Fence lines play OB. If you are on the wrong side of the fence, you are OB. Players should NOT enter fenced areas you do so at your own risk. Grasses on hill sides are high and lost disc potential is also high. Keep an eye on errant throws. Be courteous and regard the safety of other property users.

Play is not allowed during schools hours: M-F 8AM - 3PM or during school activities. School is currently on Summer Break so course is available most times of the day. Weekends are usually not a problem and property is patrolled by security.

**DANGER! Incredible as it sounds, there is an all glass building, with a glass roof, right in the middle of hole 1! DO NOT play this hole! (June 2020)
