Renowned golf architect Edmund Ault designed the Henson Creek Golf Course, a nine-hole, par-33 public course in Fort Washington. It’s a gorgeous, rolling 53 acres of trees and fairways, playing 2,461 yards from the blue tees, 2,235 from the white tees, and 1,949 yards from the red tees. There’s a clubhouse, putting green, and an 18-station driving range. Clubs and carts are for rent, while the clubhouse snack bar seats 30 people and serves the usual snacks.
The course is open year-round on a first-come, first serve basis. Locals call Henson Creek Golf Course a picturesque and affordable alternative to the area’s many private courses, a perfect place for a relaxing game.
