Congressional CC - Bethesda Maryland

RSS

AT&T NationalThis week the PGA TOUR rolls into Congressional Country Clubs Blue Course in Bethesda, Md., for the AT&T National.
 
GCSAA Class A member Mike Giuffre, director of grounds and golf maintenance, is hoping to dodge the thunderstorms forecasted for the week. High temperatures in June stunted the growth of the bluegrass rough some, but has the Poa Annua greens in great shape and smoother than ever.
 
Tournament officials decided to cut the rough at three inches instead of four inches like last year, and speed up the greens from 12 to 12.5 on the Stimpmeter this year.
 
Congressional is a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program, has a bluebird trail with nesting boxes throughout the property and club members participating in bird counts.
