Troon to manage Potomac Shores Golf Club, set to open spring 2014


Troon, a leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing is pleased to announce it will manage the Potomac Shores Golf Club, in Potomac Shores, Va. scheduled to open in spring of 2014.

Located 30 minutes from Washington, D.C., the new Potomac Shores Golf Club will soon become Northern Virginia’s first daily-fee Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course.

The new 18-hole course covers 7,082 yards from the back tees and will be a par-72. The course features dramatic elevation changes, is surrounded by hardwood forest and runs along the banks of the Potomac River.

The course will be part of the Potomac Shores community, which is being developed by SunCal.

“With Potomac Shores offering a truly unique and luxurious Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, it made perfect sense to support that experience with the leaders in the golf industry—Troon,” said Peter Johnson, SunCal corporate vice president, development. “Residents of the Potomac Shores community deserve the best possible golf experience we can provide and we know that Troon will deliver that experience day in and day out.”

Jack Nicklaus, when describing the course, said, “The vistas are great. The challenges are great. The ‘ooh factor’ is there and the ‘wow factor’ is there.”

Potomac Shores Golf Club will be home to a complete practice facility, including a driving range and a short-game area. The golf club will also include an Old Virginian inspired clubhouse that will be home to a comfortable restaurant/grille, full-service day lockers and well-appointed golf shop. The Potomac Shores community will include more than 3,800 new homes, a 450-slip marina, two public schools, 15-plus sports fields and courts, a corporate hub and town center.
