Congressional CC, Bethesda, Maryland
Located in scenic Bethesda, Maryland, Congressional Country Club carries a golf aesthetic that heralds back to its original opening in the 1920s. The country club is now home to the Quicken Loans National tournament, most recently won by golf pro Bill Haas with a closing score of 66.
Congressional's Blue Course, designed by golf architect Devereux Emmet, is consistently ranked one of the top courses in the world. Featuring wide greens, rolling fairways, and inventive hazards, this course was home to several U.S. Opens. This par-71, 7,571-yard course is recognized for its historic 18th hole. The USGA disliked the par-3 and varied the course layout over the years. Longer holes are considered more dramatic under pressure, though different configurations didn't pan out. Instead, the hole was entirely reversed and is now a 523-yard par-4.
The Gold Course isn't as notable as the Blue, though it has undergone renovations throughout the years. It measures only 6,844 yards but is considered just as difficult as Congressional's championship course.
