The reviews following the $20 million renovation of TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm speak for themselves. Shortly after reopening in 2009, TPC Potomac was ranked No. 14 by Golf Digest - Best Courses in Maryland, #12 by GolfWeek Magazine - Best New Golf Courses (2009) and also listed among Links Magazine’s list of Best New Golf Courses for that year.

Challenging enough for the best players in the world, the golf course offers five sets of tees on each hole affording golfers of all abilities the chance to “Play it Forward” and experience an enjoyable round of golf. The par 70 golf course measures 7,139 yards from the championship tees, but from the member tees is a fair challenge at around 6,047 yards. To make your golf experience even more enjoyable, consider having one of TPC Potomac’s caddies guide you around the course and offer assistance off the tee and in reading the undulating greens.
The golf course redesign was a true collaborative effort that enlisted the input from several famed architects including Tom Fazio and Pete Dye as well as PGA TOUR pros Fred Funk and Davis Love III. As part of the redesign, TPC Potomac restored the historic Rock Run Creek, a tributary of the Potomac River. The Rock Run Creek runs along five of the holes on the back nine, adding to the course’s natural beauty.

In 2012, TPC Potomac once again played host to a professional event with the Nationwide Tour getting the spotlight. The debut of the Neediest Kids Championship presented by Under Armour, a tournament benefitting the nonprofit organization that helps low-income students in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, showcased TPC Potomac's championship course. Tournament officials have signed a 3-year agreement to host the event at TPC Potomac.
