Quick Look at Quicken Loans National

Clubhouse-970x540

1. The Course

The PGA Tour hosted tournaments at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm for over 15 years (1987-2004, 2006). The course was renovated in 2008, but even so, no PGA Tour events have been held there since 2006. This will be the first time The Quicken Loans National tournament, formerly known as the AT&T National, has been held here!

2.  Neat hole on the Course

One notable hole on the Avenel Farms course is the par-3 12th hole. On this hole, one must hit an uphill shot to a hole that cannot be seen!

3.  Tiger Woods Foundation

As you probably know by now, Tiger Woods will not be attending this event. It’s unfortunate, for many reasons, including the fact that this tournament contributes to his charity, the Tiger Woods Foundation. This foundation helps children growing up in low-income homes receive the education and skills they need to be successful.
