Course Map

Welcome to Congressional Country Club and its historic Blue Course. We hope that your experience will be unforgettable. Congressional Country Club was founded in 1924 with Herbert Hoover as the Club’s first president. Founding life members of the era included Presidents Taft, Wilson, Harding and Coolidge. The membership roster in the early decades reads like a “Who’s Who” of American industrial giants and government dignitaries. The Club is very proud of its history and its tradition of hosting National Championships. The Blue Course has served as a site for some of our nation’s most prestigious championships, including: 1959 U.S. Women’s Amateur Championship, 1964 U.S. Open Championship, 1976 PGA Championship, PGA Kemper Open (1980-86), 1995 U.S. Senior Open, and 1997 U.S. Open Championship.

The origins of the Blue Course date back to 1924 when it was laid out by Devereaux Emmett and revised six years later by the great Scottish architect, Donald Ross. In the late 50s and early 60s, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. redesigned the course in time for the 1959 and 1964 championships. Rees Jones completed the last major renovations of the Blue Course in the early 1990s prior to the 1995 U.S. Senior Open and the 1997 U.S. Open.

We trust that you will find the Blue Course a true test of your skill and hope you will enjoy the spectacular view coming down the home stretch.

GENERAL INFORMATION

In just two short years, I’m proud of the tradition we’ve established with the AT&T National, and I’m very excited to announce we’re bringing this tradition to Philadelphia, Pa. In 2010 and 2011, Aronimink Golf Club, in Newtown Square, will be home to the AT&T National.

Thanks to the tremendous support from the club’s members, board and the local community, I’m thrilled to be able to bring our tournament to the Philadelphia area.

Player Interviews: Tiger Woods

Q. How do you feel going into the final round?  What do you feel about your chances?
TIGER WOODS:  Well, Jerry, I hit the ball well all day.  I really hit some good shots, and I made nothing for birdie, except for the first hole.
I made a few par putts here and there, which was nice, to keep the momentum going.  But I hit so many good putts that looked like they were going to go in, but just didn’t fall.

Q. What’s going through your mind when those good putts just are not dropping it?
TIGER WOODS:  It’s frustrating, it really is.  There’s no denying that.  When you hit good putts and you think they are looking dead center, they kind of wander left or right, it is frustrating.  Because you hit the putt on line with the speed you want it to, and it just doesn’t no go in.
And that’s the way it goes sometimes.  You have to be patient, which I was all day.  I’m still in the ballgame.  As of right now, I’m only six back.  I may be seven or so.  Hopefully tomorrow I can get it going.

Q. Was the lead tape on the putter today?
TIGER WOODS:  Yeah, well, the whole idea, like I told Stevie when we did it was to build continuity for next two tournaments, this tournament and the next, because you know the British Open never has fast greens.  So it was nice to have an adjustment like I’ve made for this week probably going to last until the next event.

Q. Stuart is not running away with it, but he has a four  or five shot lead.  He’s one of your good friends; how would you feel if he won the tournament?
TIGER WOODS:  Hey, Stuy is a great guy.  He’s always been fantastic to me and my family.  I think that the hard work I’ve seen and all of the hard work he puts in back home, it’s starting to pay off.

Q. Would he have bragging rights at Isleworth for a couple months?
TIGER WOODS:  Yeah, for a little bit.  But it’s not over yet.

Q. What did you see, if anything, of the hole in one?
TIGER WOODS:  You know, it was interesting, because Kevin and I didn’t see it.  He hit it; we started walking; he was talking to his caddie.  All of a sudden, I watched him, he’s trying to talk to his caddie, I’m trying to write down scores for Kevin and it goes in and he says, “What happened.”    It was kind of a shocker.

Q. Six or seven down, is that doable?
TIGER WOODS:  On this golf course?  Yeah.  You shoot 6 , 7 under par, and you just have one bad day out there and it’s not conceivable to shoot, you know, 1  or 2 over par.

Q. Talk about the 18th hole, you looked all around it looked like.  Were you looking at the crowd, taking in the crowd?
TIGER WOODS:  No.  I was about ready to throw my putter, that’s what I was looking at, what part of the lake can I throw this thing in.
No, I was taking it in a little bit, but also reminding myself that this putt is left center, got to keep it firm.

Q. You talk about the whole thing about this tournament coming together; from what you’ve seen this week, what do you think?
TIGER WOODS:  To have it come together in 116 days is remarkable.  It’s never been done, not on this scale.  And to have the membership here, the golf course, the PGA TOUR, AT&T and my staff put it together in such a quick span of time; and to have it embraced by the people here in D.C., it’s been unbelievable.
To have, you know, some of the troops out this week has been touching to me, because obviously that’s how I grew up; and to have them out there and supporting and watching, it just touches you because I know the commitment that it takes for them to do what they do and for them to come out here and give their support to what we’re trying to do, it is awfully special.

Q. Good crowds this weekend.
TIGER WOODS:  Yeah, it’s a very diverse crowd, and that’s what we want.  That’s what America is, and we want golf to look like America.  And, you know, if you look in this gallery, that’s what you see.  That’s the beauty of it.  Everyone comes out and just enjoys the sport and enjoys what we’re trying to do and supporting what we’re trying to do for kids.

Q. Looking around, did you feel a sense of momentum building in your favor after the birdie at 1?
TIGER WOODS:  Well, I birdied 1.  I just barely missed at 2 and lipped out at 3 and lipped out at 4.
So realistically, I should be 3  or 4 under par through four and I was only 1.  I said, hey, I’m still in the ballgame, still a long way to go, if I make three or for four from here on out, I’ll be fine, which didn’t happen.

Q. Feel like it could have been a 64 today?
TIGER WOODS:  It was yeah, I turned, I thought it was a 63 or 64 into a 69 very smoothly.  (Laughter).

Q. The breaks didn’t go for you today, but if they did would you be right there with Stuart right now?
TIGER WOODS:  No doubt about that.  The way I hit the golf ball today and the putts I hit, it could have been a low one today.

Q. Do you think you’re going to be right there tomorrow?
TIGER WOODS:  I’ve got to make a run myself and see what happens.  I’ve got to take care of my own business, and I’ve got to make a run and then see what happens, you know, behind me.  And I have to handle my own business first before anything can happen.

Q. Talk about your consistency; are you pressing more tomorrow or
TIGER WOODS:  I think the way I’ve been playing, I think it’s been ideal in the sense that I’ve been positioning the golf ball.  I just haven’t got anything going yet.
Yesterday was as close as it’s come, and even then I missed a bunch of putts that I hit well that just didn’t go in.
So again, I think what you do is just play it for what it is.  I know some of the pin locations you can’t fire at; the majority you can for tomorrow.  We’ll see.

Q. Did the greens get any quicker?
TIGER WOODS:  No.  They are still very soft.  We’re backing up 6 irons and 5 irons.

Q. Other than the receptiveness of the greens, does the humidity and heat affect you in any other way?
TIGER WOODS:  No.  I live in Florida.  (Laughter) This is nice and cool.

Q. Have you been able to put your finger at all on the putts, is it the greens, the speed?
TIGER WOODS:  I don’t know.  The first day it was terrible.  It was just bad speed.  I left a lot of putts way short.  But the last two days, I’ve hit some nice putts, and they are running a foot past the hole.  So I mean, it’s not like I’ve had bad speed.  They are right there just rolling just past the hole with cup speed, should fall in from any side if it does catch a lip.  They are just not falling.  They are just kind of lipping out.

Tournament News: 2010 AT&T; National to Honor the Military in the Philadelphia Area

Lockheed Martin to Serve as Official Military Sponsor for the Tournament; AT&T to Donate 2,500 Prepaid Calling Cards for Troops

Newtown Square, Pa. – Taking the tradition to the historical city of Philadelphia, the AT&T National will once again pay tribute to the brave men and women who serve our country in the U.S. Military. Held at the beautiful Aronimink Golf Club in Newtown Square, Pa., this year’s tournament will provide military personnel and their families an exciting and unique golf experience this Fourth of July weekend. In addition, fans can personally support the troops by sending a care package to bases overseas.

Military Care Package Tent – Spectators are encouraged to visit the Military Care Package Tent where they can build a care package which will be sent to troops deployed overseas. The Military Care Package Tent is located at the main entrance.

AT&T will also contribute 2,500 prepaid calling cards that will be included in the care packages to help keep loved ones connected. The 2009 AT&T National marked the first time the Military Care Package Tent had been incorporated into a golf tournament. Thanks to the incredible support from fans and Lockheed Martin, last year we helped send a total of 6,279 packages to troops overseas.
Military Caddies – On Wednesday, June 30th, 26 enlisted military personnel from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware will act as professional caddies on hole No. 17, wearing special camouflage caddie bibs during the AT&T National Pro-Am.

In addition, on Sunday, two military representatives will be stationed near the 18th green and will recognize the players as they complete their 72nd hole.

Challenge Coins – Since this prestigious PGA TOUR event honors the men and women who serve in the Armed Forces, each year the tournament produces a unique coin recognizing all five branches of the military – Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. These commemorative, one-of-a-kind coins are given to players and their caddies who compete. The 2010 coin is decorated with the Liberty Bell and the words “protecting our liberty so freedom can ring.”

Military Tickets – Tournament officials will once again distribute 30,000 complimentary tickets to the U.S. Military. The tickets will be distributed by the Pentagon’s Army ITT/ITR office on a first come, first served basis to local ITT/ITR offices within a 150 mile radius of Philadelphia starting June 9. Tickets are available to all DOD personnel (Active Duty, Reserve, Retired, National Guard, Dependents and Civilians), as well as the Coast Guard. Limit (4) four tickets per person.

The AT&T National, held June 29-July 4, will welcome 120 of the PGA TOUR’s finest players at the 7,237-yard course in Newtown Square. Players including K.J.

Tournament News: Woods, Kim, Glover and Singh Lead 2009 AT&T; National Field

BETHESDA, Md. – Tournament host Tiger Woods, newly crowned U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover and defending champion Anthony Kim headline a star-filled field at next week’s AT&T National.

Woods, the top-ranked player in the world, will welcome 119 of the world’s best golfers to the Blue Course at storied Congressional Country Club in Bethesda for the $6 million event to be played June 30-July 5.

In addition to 14-time major winner Woods, top 25 players set to take on Congressional are Paul Casey, three-time major winner Vijay Singh, former U.S. Open champion Jim Furyk, Sean O’Hair, Kim, Glover and former Masters champion Mike Weir.

The quality of the field is clearly reflected by the fact that it’s loaded with players at the tops of their games, each competing for the winner’s check of $1.08 million.

Woods leads the way among players in the AT&T National field who have already been victorious in tournaments this year.  Woods has won at Bay Hill and the Memorial, Casey won the Shell Houston Open, O’Hair won the Quail Hollow Championship, Pat Perez won the Bob Hope Classic, Nick Watney won the Buick Invitational and Mark Wilson won the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

There is one more important name on the list.  The newest tournament winner in the field is Glover, the 29-year-old from Greenville, S.C., who won his first major title and added his name to the 109-year-old U.S. Open trophy with a stirring victory Monday on the Black Course at Bethpage State Park.

Ricky Barnes, who battled his way around the difficult Bethpage layout and finished in a strong tie for second behind Glover, has also joined the field for the AT&T National.

Yet another up-and-comer seemingly on the fast track to stardom who will compete at Congressional is 19-year-old Danny Lee, the youngest winner of the U.S. Amateur a year ago, and a pro for only two months.

Ryder Cup stars Furyk, Kim, Hunter Mahan and Boo Weekley are all part of the AT&T National scene at Congressional, and so is the last Ryder Cup captain, Paul Azinger, and 2010 captain Corey Pavin.

Adding further to the quality of the field are sponsor exemptions Notah Begay III, Chris Riley, Olin Browne, Charles Warren, Azinger, Jason Gore, Matt Hill and Billy Horschel.

Hill, 20, the only amateur in the field, won the NCAA Division I Championship last month at the Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio.  The former hockey player from Brights Grove, Ontario, is a junior at North Carolina State.  Hill is the first North Carolina State golfer to win the NCAA championship.  Past medalists include Woods (Stanford 1995), Phil Mickelson (Arizona State 1989, 90, 92) and Jack Nicklaus (Ohio State 1961).

Among the top money-winners on the PGA Tour, the AT&T National features Kevin Na, Brian Davis, Charley Hoffman and John Rollins, in addition to Woods, O’Hair, Glover, Watney, Casey and Furyk.

The three-year-old AT&T National, already taking its place among the strongest tournaments on the PGA Tour schedule, occupies an important position in the Fed Ex Cup series.

About the Tiger Woods Foundation – Since its inception in 1996 by Tiger Woods and his father Earl, the Tiger Woods Foundation has reached an estimated 10 million young people through character development, career exploration, scholarships and grant making programs.  Programs developed and supported by the Tiger Woods Foundation all share a similar mission of empowering young people to dream big and to set specific goals to achieve their dreams.

Specific programs of the Foundation include the Tiger Woods Learning Center, a youth-education facility and curriculum based in Anaheim, Calif., and Tiger’s Action Plan, a nationwide character development program based on Earl D. Woods’ book entitled Start Something. Tiger’s Action Plan is a free program for youth 8-17 that addresses three priorities: character education, volunteer service and career exploration. More information on the Tiger Woods Foundation and its programs can be found at www.tigerwoodsfoundation.org.

About Congressional Country Club – The Congressional Country Club, which opened in 1924, is par-72 course covering 7,173 yards. The course has played host to four majors–two U.S. Opens (1964 and 1997), one PGA Championship (1976) and the U.S. Senior Open (1995) and will host the U.S. Open once again in 2011.  The Kemper Open was played there from 1980-86 and the Booz Allen Classic was held there in 2005.

Congressman Oscar E. Bland and O.R. Lubring of Indiana, founders of the Club, set out to provide an informal common ground where politicians and businessmen could meet as peers, unconstrained by red tape. They took their idea to Herbert Hoover, then Secretary of Commerce, who agreed to serve as Founders’ Club President and, from 1922-1923, Honorary Founding President of a soon-to-be-built Congressional Country Club. Primarily because of the determination of these original two visionaries, the Club was incorporated in December 1921. Construction of the Club took two and one-half years from concept to completion. Its international recognition, intended for the world of politics, has been achieved instead in the world of golf.

About the PGA TOUR – The PGA TOUR is a tax-exempt membership organization of professional golfers. Its primary purpose is to provide competitive earnings opportunities for past, current and future members of the PGA TOUR, Champions Tour and Nationwide Tour; to protect the integrity of the game; and to help grow the reach of the game in the U.S. and around the world.  In 2007, the three Tours will compete in approximately 110 events for approximately $340 million in prize money.  Tournaments are being held in six countries outside the U.S. and in 36 states.  In addition to providing competitive opportunities for its membership, TOUR events also generate significant funds for local charities. In fact, the three Tours have surpassed the $1 billion mark in overall charitable contributions.  The PGA TOUR’s web site address is www.pgatour.com and the company is headquartered in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.

Tiger Woods and AT&T; National to Return to Congressional Country Club in 2009

BETHESDA, MD — The 2009 AT&T National hosted by Tiger Woods is confirmed to be held at the historic Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, MD, Greg McLaughlin, president of the Tiger Woods Foundation and Bret Hart, president of Congressional Country Club jointly announced. Congressional Country Club originally agreed to be the host site for 2007 and 2008 but has now confirmed that in 2009 they will again host the $6 million PGA TOUR tournament, featuring a field of 120 professionals while benefiting the Tiger Woods Foundation.

“I know the players and fans loved coming out to the Blue Course last year. We are honored and excited by the support we have received from the board and members at Congressional Country Club,” Tournament Host Tiger Woods said. “I’m thrilled we will be able to once again hold our championship there in 2009.”

“Congressional Country Club was pleased in 2007 to be able to bring a professional golfing event back to the DC Region. The tournament was a tremendous success. Our members were proud to play an integral part in that success and at the same time allow for contributions to many well-deserving charities,” Hart said. “That pride, coupled with the excitement surrounding the tournament, led to an overwhelming vote by the membership to be the 2009 venue for the AT&T National. We look forward once again to working with AT&T and the Tiger Woods Foundation on this prestigious championship.”

The AT&T National brings some of golf’s finest players to the D.C. area while benefiting the Tiger Woods Foundation and paying tribute to the men and women in our Armed Forces. In addition to serving as the host organization, the Tiger Woods Foundation also plans to expand its programs to the East Coast by bringing the Tiger Woods Learning Center to Washington, D.C.

Tickets are now on sale for this year’s AT&T National held on July 2 – 6, 2008. The $425 Golf Lovers Package, good for anyone day, includes one VIP parking pass; clubhouse daily passes, Morton’s steak sandwich vouchers, and private on course lounge wristbands for four people. The Weekly Clubhouse Badge, good from Wednesday – Sunday, is $250 and includes clubhouse access and free general admission parking.

The Congressional Country Club, which opened in 1924, is a par-72 course covering 7,173 yards. The course has played host to four majors–two U.S. Opens (1964 and 1997), one PGA Championship (1976) and the U.S. Senior Open (1995) and will host the U.S. Open once again in 2011. The Kemper Open was played there from 1980-86 and the Booz Allen Classic was held there in 2005. Congressman Oscar E. Bland and O.R. Lubring of Indiana, founders of the Club, set out to provide an informal common ground where politicians and businessmen could meet as peers, unconstrained by red tape. They took their idea to Herbert Hoover, then-Secretary of Commerce, who agreed to serve as Founders’ Club President and, from 1922-1923, Honorary Founding President of a soon-to-be-built Congressional Country Club. Primarily because of the determination of these original two visionaries, the Club was incorporated in December 1921. Construction of the Club took two and one-half years from concept to completion. Its international recognition, intended for the world of politics, has been achieved instead in the world of golf.

About the Tiger Woods Foundation Since its inception in 1996 by Tiger Woods and his father Earl, the Tiger Woods Foundation has reached an estimated 10 million young people through character development, career exploration, scholarships, and grant-making programs.

Specific programs of the Foundation include the Tiger Woods Learning Center, a youth-education facility and curriculum-based in Anaheim, California that will soon expand to Washington, D.C., and a nationwide character development program based on Earl D. Woods’ book entitled Start Something. The Tiger Woods Foundation recently launched the Fist Pump Challenge, an online program allowing young people to post videos of celebrating a personal goal or achievement.
