1757 Golf Club in Dulles, Virginia Set for Public Opening

1757 Golf ClubDULLES, Va. - 1757 Golf Club, which unveiled 10 holes to rave reviews last May, will open its complete, 18-hole championship course to the public on Thursday, May 6, 2010.

Designed by David Heatwole, formerly with Jack Nicklaus' design company, the 6,623-yard, 18-hole, par-70 gem places premiums on shot-making and using every club in golfers' bags for fair challenges to all handicappers.

The new and existing holes, featuring Bent grass from tee to green, mesh seamlessly, retaining the aesthetic themes of stone walls, gently rolling terrain with elevation changes up to 30 feet and views of the majestic Virginia landscape.

Playing experiences crescendo at No. 18, a par 3 considered the course's signature hole. Players are confronted with a daring iron shot 150 to 165 yards (depending on pin placement) over water onto a narrow green. With the clubhouse and patio as eye-pleasing backdrops, low wind is blocked, creating an illusion of calmness, but air swirling at higher elevations emphasize proper club selection.

"Golfers prefer 1757 for its wide range of amenities befitting a private club," says Steve Keating, general manager of 1757 Golf Club. "The eight new holes have a 'wow' effect similar to the initial 10 holes."
