TPC at Avenel: The original Kemper Open was played at Congressional C.C. for the first 7 years before moving here in 1987.   The course was designed by Ed Ault, assisted by Tom Clark with Ed Sneed as a player consultant.  After the course opened in 1986 and the PGA Tour's moving here for the Kemper in '87, extensive modifications were made to appease the pros complaints. Fairways were moved, bunkers added, subtracted and reshaped, greens and tees changed lengthening the original design by 150 yards. Located just 10 miles west of our Country's White House in Potomac, Maryland, this is one of those deceptively difficult courses. Depending on where the tees are set, some fore-knowledge of the constantly varying elevations is helpful, because a bounce here or there can really change a player's position.  The routing of each nine is a separate loop, both varied by heavily wooded sections leading into relatively open rolling hills with streams constantly coming into play throughout.  There are a great variety of par 4's ranging from just over 290 to 470 yards.  The TPC at Avenel now hosts the annual Booz Allen Classic for the PGA Tour in June.  The rating from the back tees is 74.1 with a slope of 137.
