About the Quicken Loans National

The 2015 Quicken Loans National will be held in the nation's capital. Thanks to the tremendous support of volunteers, dedicated sponsors and the DC and Philadelphia communities, the National has grown into one of the premier stops on the PGA TOUR, boasting an impressive list of champions -- K.J. Choi, Anthony Kim, Tiger Woods, Justin Rose, Nick Watney and Bill Haas.

The 2015 Quicken Loans National field will consist of 120 top PGA TOUR professionals from around the world, competing for their share of a $6.5 million purse. The event raises funds and awareness for the Tiger Woods Foundation and pays tribute to our armed forces.


History

Congressional Country Club was founded in 1924 with Herbert Hoover as the Club's first president. Founding life members of the era included Presidents Taft, Wilson, Harding and Coolidge. The membership roster in the early decades reads like a "Who's Who" of American industrial giants and government dignitaries.

The Club is very proud of its history and its tradition of hosting national championships. The Blue Course has served as a site for some of our nation's most prestigious championships, including:

  • 1959 U.S. Women's Amateur Championship
  • 1964 U.S. Open Championship
  • 1976 PGA Championship
  • 1980-86 PGA Kemper Open
  • 1995 U.S. Senior Open
  • 1997 U.S. Open Championship
  • 2011 U.S. Open Championship

The origins of the Blue Course date back to 1924 -- when it was laid out by Devereaux Emmett -- and revised six years later by the great Scottish architect Donald Ross. In the late 1950s and early '60s, Robert Trent Jones Sr. redesigned the course in time for the 1959 and 1964 championships. Rees Jones completed the last major renovations of the Blue Course in the early '90s prior to the 1995 U.S. Senior Open and the 1997 U.S. Open.

Charity


In addition to bringing exceptional golf back to the Washington, D.C., area, the 2015 Quicken Loans National will also make a huge impact on the community through its charitable endeavors. The tournament will work to raise funds and awareness for the college-access programs of the Tiger Woods Foundation, focusing on the two Tiger Woods Learning Center campuses in Washington as well as the 25 Earl Woods Scholars who hail from the D.C. area.

In fall 2010, the Foundation launched three Tiger Woods Learning Center campuses in Washington (TWLC-DC). The TWLC-DC campuses are located at the Cesar Chavez Public Charter School in Ward 6 and the Cesar Chavez Public Charter School in Ward 7 as well as at the Marine Corps Base - Quantico. The TWLC-DC spaces and curriculum are custom-built for the young people in those communities, providing thousands of students access to innovative educational programs and the latest technology.

Once students are ready for college, we offer the Earl Woods Scholarship Program -- an incredible support network that includes admissions counseling, dedicated mentors, specialized internships, financial assistance and workshops. The Foundation currently has nearly 100 scholars enrolled in the program, and 25 are from the D.C. area.
