The historic Columbia Country Club, located in a suburb of Washington DC, is steeped in tradition. Construction of the original course was overseen by Walter Davis, a peer and close competitor of Donald Ross, in 1911, and it attracted such events as the US Open Championship in 1929 (in which Briton Jim Barnes emerged victorious). As development around the Capital expanded, the club was unable to grow, and therefore unable to accommodate major tournaments that, owing to advances in golf technology, required ever longer courses. Nevertheless, management has been careful over the years to make sure that the layout remains challenging. Carefully positioned bunkers and water hazards line the fairways and protect the greens, and wooded groves shape several of the holes and stand ready to snare the errant shot. Columbia is a window into golf's past, and is the more enjoyable for being easily walkable.
