Potomac Shores Golf Club, Dumfries, Va.
Public Course, 7,156 yards par 72 | Jack Nicklaus, designer
Potomac Shores, a roller-coaster routing on river bluffs 30 miles south of Washington D.C. was completed (as private Harbor Station) in 2006, but was abandoned, ironically for lack of water, until revived last year. Rick Jacobson, a former Nicklaus associate, helped reclaim the 18 and, with Jack's approval, modify it for public play, raising nine-foot-deep bunkers to modest depths, softening greens and adding elbow room off tees. It opens in early 2014. A hotel is planned.Photo: Potomac Shores Golf Club
