Local Golf Conditions dot Com has a great idea. It allows players to interactively rate the playing conditions at various courses in the Maryland, DC and Virginia areas. It’s fairly limited now, but plans are to expand to other areas.
For what it’s worth, I agree with the consensus on the PB Dye course in Ijamsville, Maryland. I played there this summer and found that the fairways, greens and tee boxes were in pretty bad shape. Not at all what I expected for the premium price I paid.
