WELCOME TO GOLF AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL
Less than 20 miles from the nation’s capital is a pure golf experience waiting for you at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm.
Located on 220 acres of rolling wooded countryside in Montgomery County, Md., TPC Potomac redefines the private golf club membership experience. This championship golf course, formerly known as TPC Avenel, was a familiar stop on the PGA TOUR for several years. TPC Potomac has played host to PGA TOUR events such as the Kemper Open, FBR Capital Open and Booz Allen Classic. The golf course enjoyed a historic renovation in 2008 under the direction of PGA TOUR Design Services and the result is a drastically different layout which showcases the natural rolling terrain, bentgrass tees, fairways and greens, fescue grasses and Scottish-style
bunkering. In 2010, TPC Potomac unveiled the golf course’s new look to the professionals by hosting the fifth major on the Champions Tour, the Constellation Senior Players Championship. Membership at TPC Potomac not only includes access to one of the top private golf courses in Maryland, but also offers an array of amenities plus the personalized service and outstanding privileges that have become synonymous with the PGA TOUR’s acclaimed TPC Network.
PLAY WITH THE CONFIDENCE OF A CHAMPION The reviews following the $20 million renovation of TPC Potomac speak for themselves. Shortly after reopening in 2009, TPC Potomac was named as one the best courses in the state by Golf Digest, GolfWeek, and Links Magazine. In the years to follow, the course has only continued to receive praise and was most recently named one of the “Top 10 Courses in Maryland” by Golf Digest. Fred Couples: “They redesigned it to make it better. I think the back nine is incredible. Really, really a great golf course.”
Mark O’Meara: “I think it’s important to enjoy a golf course; and this golf course, with the renovation, is tremendous.” Fred Funk: “I’m proud that it’s a TPC. It’s one of our flagship golf courses.” While challenging enough for the best players in the world, the golf course offers five sets of tees on each hole affording golfers of all abilities the chance to experience an enjoyable round of golf.
