The Colonials have a wealth of facilities at their disposal, from the Charles E. Smith Center's state-of-the-art weight and fitness rooms and golf center, to a wide variety of golf courses, the golf team enjoys many first-class facilities.
Country Club at Woodmore
The Country Club at Woodmore was designed by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay and has hosted championship events such as the Maryland State Open in 1992, which was won by amateur and then Club member Del Ponchock in a playoff over Glen Barrett and the Club's head golf professional at that time, Larry Ringer. Numerous other prestigious events have been played on the course, such as the Women's Eastern Open, the U.S. Amateur Qualifier, the Maryland Women's Amateur, and the Kemper Open Qualifier on a number of occasions. In 2007, the Club began an exciting next chapter, as it hosted an event on the Nationwide Tour, the #1 developmental tour of the PGA Tour. In June of 2013, Woodmore had the honor of hosting the Maryland State Amateur Championship; the most prestigious Amateur tournament in the state.
Army Navy Country Club
Gracing over 500 acres of rolling, wooded, landscape at sites in both Arlington and Fairfax, Virginia, the Army Navy Country Club challenges players with 54 championship golf holes. During his presidency, President William J. Clinton often retreated to the golf courses at Army Navy Country Club to escape the pressures of his office. President Dwight D. Eisenhower was known to refer to a particularly troublesome double dogleg par-5 on the Arlington course as his own private hell. Like those experiences of Presidents past, today's golfers experience the challenge, versatility, and variety of 54 holes of championship golf. The combined 500-plus acres in Arlington and Fairfax have gone through numerous improvement projects, most recently in 2009, in a committed effort to keep its course infrastructure optimized for today's modern golf game. From Arlington's rugged "Golden Age" appeal to the gentler curves of the "Modern Era" course design at Fairfax, the Club's courses have something for everyone.
Laurel Hill Golf Club
Designer Bill Love, whose credits include the Iron Forge Course at Penn National and Hunting Hawk in Glenn Allen, Virginia, has created an impressive 18-hole course on land that formerly housed the D.C. Department of Corrections facility at Lorton. Paying homage to the early architects of American golf, Love's objective was to let the natural beauty of the property dictate the character of the course. By all accounts he has succeeded with the golf press describing the course with accolades like "one-of-a-kind" and "visually stunning."
