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.
