Golf Vacations - - Chip Shots -

Dum­fries, Va. – Po­tomac Shores Golf Club, the award-win­ning Jack Nick­laus Sig­na­ture de­sign in Dum­fries, Vir­ginia, will be­gin ma­jor course up­grades in July 2018 that will im­prove grass and soil con­di­tions as well as the over­all guest ex­pe­ri­ence. Troon’s agron­omy team will lead the project, which will be com­pleted in two phases – re-grass­ing fair­ways and bunker ren­o­va­tions.

Phase one of the course im­prove­ment project will be­gin in July and will fo­cus on re­plac­ing the cur­rent bent grass fair­ways with Lat­i­tude 36 Ber­muda­grass. Lat­i­tude 36 Ber­muda­grass, a new va­ri­ety of Ber­muda­grass de­vel­oped at Ok­la­homa State Univer­sity in re­cent years, thrives in the Mid-At­lantic re­gion, has a high traf­fic tol­er­ance and ex­cep­tional visual ap­peal. The course will tem­po­rar­ily close while the fair­ways are be­ing re-grassed and will re­open on La­bor Day week­end. Phase two will be­gin in mid-Oc­to­ber and will cen­ter on bunker ren­o­va­tions. The golf course will re­main open dur­ing the bunker ren­o­va­tion project, which is ex­pected to be com­pleted in De­cem­ber 2018.

Through­out the on-course up­grades, Po­tomac Shores’ 8,000-square-foot club­house, which fea­tures func­tion space, a restau­rant and lounge, will re­main open for reg­u­lar busi­ness and will con­tinue to host wed­dings and other so­cial events.

Po­tomac Shores Golf Club opened for daily-fee play in May of 2014. Upon open­ing in 2014, the Troon Golf-man­aged fa­cil­ity was named one of the “Best New Cour­ses” in the U.S. by Golf Di­gest and GOLF Mag­a­zine and is cur­rently ranked among the “Top Cour­ses

You Can Play” in Vir­ginia by GolfWeek mag­a­zine.

“We have the un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment of the de­vel­oper to be the premier golf res­i­den­tial com­mu­nity in the re­gion,” said Todd Van Meer, PGA, di­rec­tor of club op­er­a­tions, Po­tomac Shores Golf Club. “Our goal is to de­liver an un­for­get­table golf ex­pe­ri­ence for our res­i­dents and guests – these course im­prove­ments will al­low us to de­liver on that promise.”

Lo­cated just 30 min­utes south of Wash­ing­ton, D.C., Po­tomac Shores Golf Club is the cen­ter­piece of the Po­tomac Shores com­mu­nity be­ing de­vel­oped by SunCal, one of the largest real es­tate de­vel­op­ment com­pa­nies in the U.S. that spe­cial­izes in large-scale, mixed-use master-planned com­mu­ni­ties.

Po­tomac Shores cov­ers 1,920 acres and fea­tures nearly two miles of shore­line, 1,000 acres of pre­served hard­wood forests and streams and tra­di­tional Vir­ginia Tide­wa­ter ar­chi­tec­tural de­signs. This tran­sit-ori­ented de­vel­op­ment is planned for a mixed-use town cen­ter, a new VRE com­muter rail sta­tion, a wa­ter­front vil­lage and a cor­po­rate cam­pus.

Its master plan also in­cludes two pub­lic schools, mul­ti­ple sports fields, 10 miles of trails and over 3,800 res­i­dences.
