New D.C. Metro Public-Access Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course will Tee Off in 2013

The Potomac Shores Golf Course Architecture Includes Dramatic Vistas with Riverfront Holes along Powell’s Creek and Native Wetlands in Virginia

Prince William County, VA (Oct. 10, 2012) — Designed by one of golf’s all-time great players, Jack Nicklaus’ articulate attention to the Potomac Shores Golf Course design is evident at every hole.  Located in Virginia’s Prince William County, this forest-lined, riverfront 18-hole course is a par 72 with four sets of tees. Course distances range from 5,389 yards to 7,156 yards with more than 200 feet of elevation changes.

This will be the first Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course open to the general public in the Washington, D.C. Metro Area.

The opening of the Potomac Shores Golf Course will coincide with the debut of a new 7,500-square-foot luxury clubhouse in the summer of 2013. The planned clubhouse complements Potomac Shores’ mid-Atlantic architectural style with a Georgian Plantation home feel and a wraparound porch.

The Potomac Shores Golf Course is located 30 miles south of the nation’s capital at Virginia’s new master-planned community, Potomac Shores. Potomac Shores is a mixed use, transit-oriented waterfront community that promotes environmental responsibility and enjoyment through walking, biking and public transportation. Along with the golf course, this 1,920-acre development has plans for a five-star resort, more than 3,800 homes, a 450-slip marina, 21 athletic fields and courts, two schools and a VRE commuter rail station in the Town Center.
