Billy Casper Golf takes over at former Presidential Golf Club

The former Presidential Golf Club near the Dulles Airport in Virginia has been reinvented as the 1757 Golf Club, a public course that will be managed by nearby Vienna, Va.-based Billy Casper Golf.
 
The property was originally launched as The Presidential Golf Club, an exclusive private club marketed as a high-end corporate getaway for the nation’s capital’s movers and shakers, but the economic downturn of the past year led the project’s owners to convert it to a public facility.
 
1757 Golf, LLC, on behalf of Beaumeade Dulles 28 Golf Associates, LLC, in turn an affiliate of Lerner Enterprises and The Tower Companies of Rockville, Md., has tabbed the Casper group to manage the construction completion and all facets of operations for the course. Nine of the course’s 18 holes, all designed by former Nicklaus Design associate David Heatwole, will open for play around Memorial Day, with the full 18 scheduled to be open for play in the spring of 2010.
 
The renamed 1757 Golf Club is named for the year in which Loudoun County, where it is located, was established.
 
The property and its luxurious clubhouse, set to be completed by the spring of 2010, will feature a prevalent Continental Congress and early Presidential theme, with rooms bearing names like Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe and Wilson.
