Columbia Country Club Course Review
The Columbia Country Club is the proud successor of the old 1898 Columbia Golf Club and its located in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The present-day golf course sits majestically on a beautiful piece of real estate and it was designed back in 1911 by Herbert Barker, a famous architect and a top notch golfer in his day. The Columbia Country Club suffered a number of extensive renovations in 1915 and 1925, including the addition of a club-house. More recent improvements include a better irrigation system added earlier in 2012 and new tee boxes. In the 60s, the Columbia Country Club received platform tennis courts and later on in 2009 an upgraded fitness center, an indoor swimming facility and a bowling alley. The Columbia Country Club golf course has a long and rich tradition of being home for some of the best amateur golf-players in Washington DC. Its also worth mentioning that this course was highly regarded by President Woodrow Wilson back in the day. About the golf course itself, theres a funny saying among caddies and members, that there are just 2 flat lies there at Colombia, on the tee and in your pocket.
Well, I dont know about that, but the Columbia Country Club golf course definitely favors finesse and shot making over sheer force, i.e. your ability to drive the ball over the hills and far away. Thats due to the topography of the land, which is relatively hilly, featuring undulating-small greens generally sloped back to front and tight fairways. Needless to say, the greens on the golf course play very fast at a very high speed and due to the natural layout of the terrain, driving the ball long-distance will definitely get you in trouble, due to the side-hill lies, the deep rough and the pot bunkers. Overall the Columbia Country Club measures 6800 yards of golf from its longest tees for a 70 par, featuring a slope rating of 139 and a course rating of 72.3.
