    Congressional Country Club Course Review

    The CongressionalCountry Club is located in Bethesda, Maryland and it offers its visitors two 18-hole world-class golf courses along with an excellent family club. This is an old school golf club by all metrics, as it was first opened to public in 1924 and it has already hosted 5 major events/championships, including a PGA Championship and 3 US Opens. If you take a look at the CongressionalCountry Clubs list of founding members, youll be amazed to find big names such as Woodrow Wilson, William H. Taft, Calvin Coolidge, Warren G. Harding and Herbert Hoover; all of them were life time members while President Eisenhower was a regular guest, enjoying the clubs greens with other members of his cabinet.

    The CongressionalCountry Clubs original purpose was golf only, but meantime it evolved into something resembling more of a family club, boasting its top notch facilities, including an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, bowling and dining. If Id have to describe the CongressionalCountry Club in a few words, Id say that it has a storied past and a bright future.

    There are two golf courses available to choose from at the CongressionalCountry Club, the Blue Course, which features 7250 yards of golf from its longest tees for a 72 par, founded in 1922 and designed by architects Robert Trent Jones Sr, Devereux Emmet and Rees Jones, while the second is the Gold Course, established also in 1922, featuring a yardage of 6588 from its longest tees for a 70 par, designed and built by numerous architects (it suffered major renovations/re-design jobs during its long life). Both the Blue and the Gold golf courses are well known for their tree lined fairways, the rolling terrain and nothing short of challenging greens. There are also water hazards thrown into the mix here and there, but its worth mentioning the Blue Course hosted the most significant golf tournaments in the CongressionalCountry Clubs long and rich history. Also, the Blue is considered among the Top 100 best golf courses in the US. The Gold is shorter compared to the Blue and it has always been the little brother, being completely renovated in 2000 by Arthur Hills and just as challenging as the Blue.
