Golf at Congressional May 2, 2017

This past weekend’s Men’s Member Guest highlighted what’s best about Congressional. Golf on our championship courses, an amazing Food and Beverage experience, and the camaraderie of the membership were on full display.

One of the guests commented after play that “I don’t want to play any more golf, but I don’t want to go home either”. I couldn’t think of a better compliment.

There is so much to look forward to at Congressional as we head into May.

I look forward to seeing you at the Club soon.

With best wishes,

Jason Epstein, PGA Director of Athletics

Congratulations again to the 2017 Men's Member Guest Champions, member Bryan Judd(R) and his guest David Paik(L), great playing Gentlemen!

Blue Course Aerification....

Blue Course aerification is in progress this week. Weather cooperating we hope to complete the process by weeks' end and open for play on Saturday.

Please allow two to three weeks for healing to occur. Thank you for your patience!

Agronomy Update...

Sediment removal from 10 gold pond is complete. Four feet of sediment was removed increasing the pond depth to 7.5 feet. The large brown bags in the woods below 13 gold green hold the sediment that was removed until it is dry enough to remove and use in the future as soil on the courses and grounds.

New in-ground trash cans have been installed at #10 Blue course tee. They are located between the gold and white tee as well as beside the steps to the green tee. This is part of our effort to remove clutter from the golf course. Let us know what you think.

If you have any questions or comments please contact Jason Epstein at or Mike Giuffre at
