That was a pet project for Hank Gordon, I think around 1990 or so, he apparently always wanted to design a golf course. Hank was a long time member at Fairfax CC, I think I played a B-Team match against him there.
I first played at Algonkian in about 1976, shortly after it was turned over to the NOVA Parks by PEPCO (I think it was), which had built it for its employees. Its pretty straightforward, with plenty of length, tree-lined so accuracy is important. I actually worked on the design team for Brambleton doing geotechnical explorations. @jsgolfer may recognize the designer, a civil engineering firm called Gordon Associates. I think I've only played the course once.
I took a quick look at the online booking system. Tee times are available at both courses, although not many for a foursome in the prime time frame of 8 to 11 AM. The price seems reasonable for this area, in the general $50 range.
