The PGA Tour is heading back to TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm or just Avenel as you may remember it back from the old Kemper Open days.
It was recently announced that The Quicken Loans National will stay in the DC area for the 2017 season. The tournament will be played at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in 2015 and at Congressional Country Club in 2016.
The Quicken Loans National raises funds for the Tiger Woods Foundation and local charities, while paying tribute to our armed forces.
“My foundation is deeply committed to the D.C. area with our three learning centers and Earl Woods Scholarship Program students,” Tiger Woods, a two-time Quicken Loans National champion, said in a release. “We are excited to take the Quicken Loans National to another top course in the area that will challenge our strong field.”
TPC Potomac has undergone significant changes since it last hosted the Kemper Open in 2006. Major changes have been made to the course, all with the intention of bring the PGA Tour back. The 2010 Constellation Senior PLAYERS Championship and the Web.com Tour’s Mid-Atlantic Championship in 2012 and 2013 have been played at TPC Potomac since the renovations and the course has received positive reviews from the players.
