Congressional Golf Course
The Congressional Golf Course features two courses—the par 70 Gold Course and the par 72 Blue Course. The latter was the site of the 1964 and 1997 U.S. Opens, the 1976 PGA and the 1995 Senior Open. Those familiar with Congressional consider it a monster of a course. Its fairways are long and tight, and it is heavily wooded. The most challenging hole is the par 4 17th, familiar to many television viewers. It is 440 yards downhill to a peninsula green.
My dad joined Congressional Country Club back in 1955 and our family has been a member ever since. I spent my teenage years growing up at Congressional and can recall many fond memories during those years. My mom is still a member--she is 92 years old. We visited Congressional five years ago and saw many many changes to the club. It has always been and still is a beautiful country club and I will always cherish many wonderful memories. I miss it very much. I now reside in Charleston, S.C.
