At East Potomac Park Golf Course you have a chance to play golf while surrounded by Washington, DC landmarks including the Washington Monument, Ronald Reagan National Airport, Fort McNair, the Naval War College, and the Jefferson Memorial. The East Potomac Golf Course facility sometimes referred to as Haines Point Golf Course, includes one full-length 18-hole golf course along with two 9-hole golf courses. The 18-hole course is known as the Blue Course. This Bermuda grass medium-length layout has 3 sets of teeboxes for a fun, but challenging golfing experience. The holes tend to be straight and flat and are suitable for golfers of all levels. The Blue Course presents its most difficult challenge when strong winds are blowing off of the nearby Potomac River.

East Potomac Park’s White Course is a 9-hole, par 34, executive golf course. It features an open layout and short par 4's that make it the perfect place for intermediate golfers who are not quite ready for the full-length Blue Course. Experienced players can work on their iron play while taking in views of the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial.

East Potomac Park’s Red Course is a 9-hole golf course composed entirely of par threes. The holes range in length from 100 to 200 yards and this course provides an excellent place to practice your approach shots and short game. This is also an ideal golf course for beginning golfers. The Red Course is also a favorite for group and corporate outings with golfers of varying skill levels.

East Potomac Park Golf Course also features a great grill and porch for post-round food and drink including burgers and beers. There are several practice putting greens and three practice holes (rentable $10 per hour or $5 per half-hour). There is also an excellent two level driving range that features 50 covered and 50 uncovered stalls for year-round golf practice. 26 of the stalls are heated to allow for use during the colder months and upper level stalls provide excellent views of the Washington Monument, Jefferson Memorial and Reagan National Airport. Range tokens cost $5.50 each and are available at the Pro Shop or Driving Range.
