Lansdowne Resort Leesburg, VA – 4/13/2009
The Brian Mitchell American Heart Association Celebrity Golf Classic drew predictably fewer players than in previous years. Many outings have bee cancelled or postponed due to lagging corporate support. There were plenty of former Redskins this year, nearly as many as paying golfers it seemed. The course has matured nicely since its opening 3 years ago. Drainage issues still haunt a few holes, but problems are a far cry from yester year. The Norman course is certainly more difficult than the resort style RTJ. Both are fine layouts, but for challenge play the newer Norman course. This time out I had a chance to warm up on the adjacent nine hole executive course. The course is a popular inclusion in stay and play packages at the hotel. The signature for the Norman course is the final four holes which measure 1,760 yards from the tips, and they call “the toughest mile in golf”. Ayce
