An Arthur Hills Design, this course is known for its superb conditioning, challenging greens, and immaculate practice facilities.
Blue Mash Golf Course in Laytonsville MD is THE premier public golf course in the Rockville area. Designed by Arthur Hills and only 15 minutes from downtown Rockville, Blue Mash features a mix of links style, parkland, wooded, and water holes. There are no forced carries so it is manageable for beginners and high handicap golfers, and low handicap golfers will find its length from the back tees, strategic bunker placement, and devilish, well protected greens plenty of challenge.
The practice facility at Blue Mash is among the best in the entire state of Maryland. A 10,000 square foot putting green, all grass tee driving range, and short game practice area host some of the finest instructors around, including Clubgolf Performance Center and World Long Drive Champion and custom club maker Mike O’Barsky.
Arthur Hills’ son, Joe Hills, co-designed and owns the course in partnership with Tom Healy, a native of Chicago and former corporate banker. Surprised at the lack of courses in the greater Washington metro area, Hills and Healy made building Blue Mash Golf Course in Laytonsville MD their dream. It took them a grueling 10 years to complete! However, the partners never gave up on their commitment to the course, and they continue to reaffirm it year after year in course improvements.
Blue Mash Golf Course gets its name from the property’s original name “Blue Marsh,” referring to the blue clay of the marshy, thickly wooded land. Pronounced colloquially “Blue Mash,” the land was inhabited by freed slaves who also made it a stop on the Underground Railroad, hiding runaway slaves on their way north. The blue stars and gold stripes logo of the Laytonsville golf course refers to the property’s historic function as a stop on the long journey to freedom.
