The Spirit of Golf

"Golf is deceptively simple, and endlessly complicated. A child can play it well, and a grown man can never master it. Any single round of it is full of unexpected triumphs and seemingly perfect shots that end in disaster.

It is almost a science, yet it is a puzzle without an answer. It is gratifying and tantalizing, precise and unpredictable. It requires complete concentration and total relaxation.

It satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening - and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented."

2018 Outings

The Bull Run Country Club's 18-hole championship golf course, which opened in 1998, is set on a huge piece of open land in the foothills of Virginia's Bull Run Mountain. It is a quick drive from Washington, D.C., a few miles north of Haymarket, and a few miles south of Middleburg.

The course was designed by Rick Jacobson, a Chicago-area architect who worked for the Jack Nicklaus design company before starting his own firm. His aim at Bull Run was to preserve the look of the land and create a player-friendly course that also has loads of challenges for the more daring hitters. You will find wide fairways done in a concave/convex shape that steer the ball toward the center. There are large landing areas, sometimes defined by grass hollows, bunkers, or trees.

In the heart of Virginia’s horse country, just minutes away from historic Civil War sites, you will find Bull Run Golf Club, one of the Washington, D.C., area's most outstanding golf courses. They have lots of awards to their credit: Golf Magazine named Bull Run Golf Club as the best new public course in 1999; the Washington Times called it the "best public course in the D.C. area" in 2000; and Washington Golf Monthly named it to the mid-Atlantic's "100 Must-Play Courses." That is why golfers love Bull Run Golf Club! It is a very scenic golf course that meanders through acres and acres of undeveloped scenic meadows, ponds and woodlands.
