Robert Trent Jones Jr. Course
A classic experience awaits accomplished and novice golfers alike on this course. The key to success on the Robert Trent Jones course is the ability to accurately judge the impact of elevation changes. This course provides mental challenges with risk-reward holes and a tee-to-green carry over water on the par-3 17th, as well as physical tests with a pair of classic, three-shot par-5s. While friendly, the strategic layout will test the skills of all playing levels, rewarding each with a memorable round.
Greg Norman Course
The Greg Norman Course incorporates the natural undulations of the Potomac River Valley as it meanders along the Potomac River. The rolling landscape of this design winds through a mature hardwood forest and along rock outcroppings. Those natural elements combine with historic sites on the 3rd and 4th holes to form the course’s distinct character, using Norman’s “Least Disturbance Approach” to design. It also includes a demanding four-hole stretch dubbed “the hardest mile in golf” by its creator.
Capable of hosting championship competition, the Norman Course remains enjoyable for everyday golfers, with tees fitting a multitude of skill levels, including the memorable “island tees” on the opening hole.
Greg Norman’s Sharkbite Course
This nine-hole course is long enough to present a challenge to experienced golfers looking for some quick play, yet designed to be fun for families and junior golfers as well. Located adjacent to the back nine of the Norman Course, Sharkbite is perfect for golfers who like to walk.The course offers five sets of tees, with a par of 32 and total yardage of just over 2,300 yards from the back tees. By moving up to the juniors-only tee box, the course becomes an enjoyable 870 yards in length.
