Robert Trent Jones, Sr., Rich Mandell
During his presidency, President William J. Clinton often retreated to the golf courses at Army Navy Country Club to escape the pressures of his office. President Dwight D. Eisenhower was known to refer to a particularly troublesome double dogleg par-5 on the Arlington course as his own private hell. Like those experiences of Presidents past, today’s Members experience the challenge, versatility, and variety of 54 holes of championship golf. The combined 500-plus acres in Arlington and Fairfax have gone through numerous improvement projects, most recently in 2009, in a committed effort to keep its course infrastructure optimized for today’s modern golf game. From Arlington’s rugged “Golden Age” appeal to the gentler curves of the “Modern Era” course design at Fairfax, the Club’s courses have something for everyone.
