Detailed description of Columbia Country Club

Columbia Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

The Columbia Country Club Golf Course first opened for play on January 6, 1911. The golf course was designed by Walter Travis, a noted golfer of the day.

The Columbia Country Club, located in Chevy Chase, Maryland, is the successor of the Columbia Golf Club, which was organized on September 29, 1898. The first location of the Club was on the east side of Brightwood Avenue, afterwards known as Georgia Avenue, in the neighborhood of Schuetzen Park. The present site was purchased in 1909 from the Chevy Chase Land Company. It stands as one of the oldest and most prestigious country clubs in the United States. Through its history, the club has counted among its members two Five Star Generals, Omar Bradley and Hap Arnold, along with countless politicians, CEOs and lobbyists. The course was one of the favorite courses of President Woodrow Wilson. The U.S. Open was held at the Club in 1921, won by Englishman, Jim Barnes. President Warren Harding presented the Champion's Trophy.

With the exception of the eighth hole, there have been changes (for the better) on all holes of the course. Several acres were added to the original 126 acres in the thirties. Legend has it that the par 3 16th hole served as Bobby Jones's inspiration for the 12th hole at Augusta National Golf Club.

Columbia Country Club Golf Course plays to a par of 70 and measures 6,600 yards in length, with a course rating of 72.3 and slope rating of 139.

Great course. An old, historic, course that has kept up with the times. Course is always in great condition and it is a very challenging layout. Long par 3's add to the interest. This course compares very favorably with the other, very exclusive courses in the area.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level
