At Potomac Shores Golf Club near Washington D.C., Jack Nicklaus provides plenty of great looks



POTOMAC SHORES, Va. -- One premium, daily-fee golf option in the Washington D.C. area is the Troon-managed Potomac Shores Golf Club in the master-planned community of Potomac Shores.

Built right before the economic downturn of 2008, this signature Jack Nicklaus design actually got seven years of grow-in before it opened in 2014. The result is a layout more mature than its age.

With four sets of tees, the golf course can be stretched to just more than 7,000 yards. With elevated tees, lots of bunkers, wetlands, water hazards and hardwoods, the course is laid out in a challenging and beautiful setting.

The new Potomac Shores clubhouse is a 7,500-square-foot gathering place reminiscent of the Georgian plantation home with wraparound porches and a traditional carriage house, offering excellent dining and a unique setting for private events.

The club also offers excellent practice facilities, including an all-grass range, short-game area and putting greens.
