NORTH COURSE - Our championship golf course, the North Course, is the original 18 hole course in Rockville, and was designed and constructed by Course Architect Alfred Tull with input and assistance from Woodmont member Leopold Freudberg and Greens Superintendent Rudy Will. Its Grand Opening was on July 26, 1950 and it has played to rave reviews ever since.  In 1999, the North Course went through an extensive renovation, including replacement of the original 18 greens. The renovation was done by renowned Course Architect Arthur Hills.

Hole 1

HOLE PLAY 

Slight dogleg left with a fairway bunker approximately 150 yards from the green on the right side.  A well bunkered green sloping from the center of the green right. 
A well placed tee shot leaves you short and right of the fairway bunker.  This allows a mid-iron to the center of this green.


SOUTH COURSE
-
In the early 1950’s our golf courses also included a challenging 9 hole, par 3 course with holes ranging from 120 to 230 yards, known as the “Iron Duke”. In August of 1957, a fourth 9 hole course opened. The “Iron Duke” was eventually converted into a regulation 9 hole course, was combined with the other 9 holes, and premiered on Labor Day of 1961 as the South Course that we enjoy today.

Hole 1

HoLE play

A dogleg right with trees down right side. An uphill second shot with one bunker guarding left side of green.
Tee shot should be played at the bunker down the left center of the fairway. This will give you an approach with a mid-iron. Long hitters can try to cut the corner and leave themselves a short wedge into the green. If you miss the green, miss it slightly right.

 
 
Over the years, our courses have hosted many special golf events including the 1953 National Celebrities Tournament, then a regular event on the Professional Tour. Participants included such legends as Sam Snead, Ben Hogan, Cary Middlecoff, Lew Worsham and the winner Ted Kroll. For many years, we have also hosted regional qualifying for the Men’s and Ladies United States Open Golf Championships, as well as all of the various championships of each of the local golf associations both Amateur and Professional. These events serve as a constant testament to the test of golf and conditioning of our courses.
