1757 Golf Club
Located just a few minutes from Washington Dulles International Airport, 1757 Golf Club is one of northern Virginia's most popular courses. The name comes from the same year that Loudoun County was founded. The golf course is definitely a shot-maker's layout with a diverse terrain that has elevation changes up to 30 feet. There are several risk-reward opportunities as well. Well positioned tee shots will be generously rewarded with accessible approach shots but if you're errant, you'll have to deal with a tough recovery. The golf course is fairly tight so accuracy is a necessity. There are also water hazards on 14 holes and the rough can also be punishing. 1757 Golf Club finishes with an intimidating par 3 that plays over water to a shallow green. You'll need a bold stroke to avoid a watery grave.

Overall great course in great shape. People don’t fix their divots so greens need some work. Really enjoyed playing there
My New Area Favorite
Nice course! Definitely more interesting than the average public course. Fair amount of water. But not too tight. A good challenge for an average golfer like me.
Superb condition and nice value for AM
Greens smooth and true. Fairways nice. Rough cut well.
Manager and a couple workers are racist and will not give members the rights that they paid for. The manager especially will ignore and yell at customers and kids. Will not give people carts even though they have valid drivers licenses. So many rights are taken away from members even though they did nothing. Just saw a few teenagers getting yelled at for having a cart.
Little slow, but overall great
The pace was slow. The group in front of me had 6 people playing 5 of them. When I saw their cart waiting near the starter, there were only 4 ( 2 adults 2 kids). Around 2nd hole, a kid showed up and joined the play. Then soon, another kid showed up. 5 kids playing; one adult was helping and coaching. 3 people rode in one cart. I was worried for their safety. 1757 needs at least one staff member watching the pace of play and overall safety in the course.
No price adjustment for terrible conditions
Played on a Sunday around noon. Everything on the course was aerated and they still charged full price. Definitely not worth $87 apiece to play.
Great time on Friday
For March the course was in great shape especially the greens. Pace of play was excellent as a Friday morning 9:40 tee time and played in exactly 4 hrs.
Hard to define unusual course
I've always enjoyed 1757, but it's a difficult course to really love. Water on 14 (maybe 15) holes, a routing bound by highways, power lines, retaining walls, and an inexplicably large range and practice area, and some other weirdness. Objectively I should like it less than I do. But I find it a fun layout and have somehow generally managed to navigate the point-to-point design mostly successfully. Maybe it's that the holes do have a nice variety, so the weird super dogleg hole No. 6 and the overly difficult Nos. 13 and 17 are contrasted with a reachable Par 5 9th and the short par-4 No. 12.
The overall property is quite flat and holes are both tree-lined and in open expanses. The layout is very unfavorable to righthanded slicers, as a number of holes, especially on the front, feature lakes running up the right side. Greens are very fair, large but not too much slope.
Walking has caught on here, but there are two problems: you cross Broad Run six times, requiring long walks between some holes, and then there is the walk from No. 9 to 10, about 2/3's of a mile (seriously!). You also have a full 400 yards from the starter station to the 1st tee.
As mentioned, the practice area is actually the highlight of the course (to the detriment of the 18-hole layout), The range itself has a cool vibe, with music playing and clubhouse drinks handy (almost Top Golf-esque). There is also an extensive practice area, and a warm-up putting/chipping green.
Hard to play early in the year. You have to know all the water obstacles, there are so many you can't see from the depart.
Greens are very fast, but in very good condition .
Great Early Spring Outing
1757 always delivers an excellent golfing challenge on a fun layout. The weather was spectacular if a little windy, but that only added to the challenge in maneuvering around the significant amount of water on the course. I always love playing at 1757 even when I don't shoot well.
