It's time to work on your short game! East Potomac's Red Course is nine holes of Par 3's. Holes range from 100-200 yards each and provide golfers of any skill level with a good challenge.


The Red Course is also known as the "Beginner Course" and is a favorite for the experienced golfer to practice pitch and chip shots.


White Course

Par 33
2,420 yards (2,210m)
The White Course is a nine hole, par 34, executive course. An open layout and short par 4's make this course perfect for intermediate golfers who are not quite ready for the Blue Course. Experienced players can work on their iron play while taking in views of the Washington Monument and Jefferson Memorial.
The White Course is also "The Family Course" which houses blue and gold tee markers to give everyone, young or old a choice for closer greens.
The White Course also doubles as the new 18-Hole FootGolf Course. Marked with Orange tee Markers and Flags. FootGolfers share the course with regular golfers through out the season.


Blue Course

18 Holes
Par 72
6,599 yards (6,034m)
East Potomac's Blue Course not only provides golfers with a challenging but fair golf course, but also provides some of Washington's greatest landmarks in the background. Most noticeable is the Washington Monument, visible from any location on the course. Other landmarks include Ronald Reagan National Airport, Fort McNair, the Naval War College, and the Jefferson Memorial.

The course is a Walter Travis design from the early 1900's. Often described as a Links style course, your most difficult round at East Potomac will come when the wind coming off the Potomac River is at its strongest.
