Prince William County, Virginia, (May 7, 2014) – On Monday, May 5, the Potomac Shores master-planned community celebrated the grand opening of its 18-hole, par-72 Potomac Shores Golf Club. The first publically accessible Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in the greater Washington, D.C., region opened to residents and daily-fee guest play.
“The Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course at Potomac Shores will provide golfers of all skill levels the opportunity to play a course designed by a man recognized as the greatest golfer in the history of the game and one of golf’s preeminent designers,” said SunCal Senior Vice President of Public Affairs David Soyka. “The collaborative effort of this project has culminated in the opening of a spectacular course that has been years in the making.”
The course features a hardwood forest outline, dramatic vistas, rolling greens, and holes that play along the Potomac River and Powell’s Creek. Located just 30 minutes south of Washington, D.C., Potomac Shores Golf Club is a centerpiece to the Potomac Shores community being developed by SunCal, one of the leading developers of master-planned communities and commercial developments in the United States.
The Potomac Shores Golf Club features a new 8,000-square-foot clubhouse, providing the ideal environment for residents and visitors to dine, relax and recap the experience of a picturesque round of golf. Guests will also enjoy the clubhouse’s outdoor ambiance with brick patios overlooking the 18th green, complete with distinctive fireplaces and an outdoor fire pit. Finally, the spacious event lawn provides an ideal venue for tournaments, weddings and other group outings.
Army veteran Nick McCormick, a member of the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, was one of the first to golf on the course and was pleased with the layout and challenges offered. “Absolutely thrilling,” McCormick said. “I absolutely love it; it’s a phenomenal course.”
