Potomac Shores Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature design in Dumfries, Va., will begin major course upgrades in July 2018 that will improve grass and soil conditions as well as the overall guest experience. Troon’s agronomy team will lead the project, which will be completed in two phases – regrassing fairways and bunker renovations.
 
Phase 1 of the course improvement project will begin in July and will focus on replacing the current bentgrass fairways with Latitude 36 Bermudagrass. Latitude 36 Bermudagrass, a new variety of Bermudagrass developed at Oklahoma State University in recent years, thrives in the Mid-Atlantic region, has a high traffic tolerance and exceptional visual appeal. The course will temporarily close while the fairways are being regrassed and will reopen on Labor Day weekend. Phase 2 will begin in mid-October and will center on bunker renovations. The golf course will remain open during the bunker renovation project, which is expected to be completed in December 2018. 
  
“We have the unwavering commitment of the developer to be the premier golf residential community in the region,” said Todd Van Meer, PGA, director of club operations, Potomac Shores Golf Club. “Our goal is to deliver an unforgettable golf experience for our residents and guests – these course improvements will allow us to deliver on that promise.”
