Client Course Description
The Congressional Country Club Blue Course is considered among the best 100 courses in the United States; Golf Digest ranked it 89th in its 2006 listing of the 100 Greatest Golf Courses. In 2007, Golf Digest ranked it 86th in America's 100 Greatest Golf Courses. The course measures 7,250 yards and is known for its rolling terrain, tree-lined fairways, and wide challenging greens. Water hazards also come into play.
In 1989, we completed a renovation in which all greens and surrounding features as well as all fairway features were rebuilt. We substantially regraded nine fairways and built several new tees. In 2006, we reversed the eighteenth hole to become the tenth hole. In preparation for the 2011 U.S. Open all of the greens were rebuilt to USGA specifications in addition to a number of new championship tees and bunker and fairway adjustments.
