Capitol Hill – The Senator

One of the best courses among the three existing in Capitol Hill is the Capitol Hill – The Senator that is also designed by Robert Trent Jones. This golf vacation trail clearly manifests roots in Britain or Ireland specially with its open and rolling links-style attributes. Here, seaside links spread in abundance together with the expansive treeless terrain. While this place may not have a sea view, nothing seem lacking on this course that contains a dune-like mounding and 250 / 150 yard marker posts supplying a line from the tee.

Narrow and tumbling fairways exist along with grasping semi-rough and knee-high grass sculpted on the mounds of Capitol Hill – The Senator. That means a more challenging and demanding layout for any type of golfer. Adding more drama are small and round pot bunkers that are generously distributed on the comparatively constrictive fairways that trails through the undulating, elevated or tucked in the dunes greens. Sharing a double green are the 3rd and 7th hole that both plays for a par 4 and emulates the classic Scottish golf vacation destination fashion. The links-style successfully weaves the entire course through the treeless hills and mounts that seem to capture the playful atmosphere of St. Andrews or Ballybunion, especially with the nature of the wind in it. This course becomes related to Carnoustie, though, when played from the ends of the 7697 yards as it gets inherently penal.

With such amazing landscape, Capitol Hill – The Senator continues to receive praises from golfers and writers alike. In fact, this golf trip destination was named among the Top 10 New Courses in the nation by Golf Magazine.
