What the club says: The George Washington Golf and Country Club hosts a fabulous par 73, championship course with a standard scratch of 71. Set in mature tree lined parkland, the course is home to a number of major regional competitions. The various natural hazards and tactical holes offer a good challenge of golf to both occasional and seasoned club players.

Great Course

My club course, so I may be biased. It's beautiful to play through the trees, and very picturesque. Is a bit wet at the moment, but that's typical of a lot of parkland courses at this time of the year.

Great course

Tricky one these days, as this is my home course these days. Quite tight off the tee, and a great variety of holes. Basically I love it, play it when you're in the North east, I'm sure you'll love it too. Have a chat to Bill, he's great.
