Burning Tree Club

The 18-hole "Burning Tree" course at the Burning Tree Club facility in Bethesda, Maryland features 6,400 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. The signature hole is #18, a 412-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot over a pond to an elevated fairway, then an approach shot to a small, well-bunkered green.

This is a private, all-male golf club and membership is extremely exclusive. Designed by Colt & Alison, the Burning Tree golf course opened in 1923 and has been patronized by many past presidents, congressmen, lobbyists and very well to do’s. You will need to pull some major strings or be well connected if you wish to play at this very private course. Burning Tree features Bermuda grass fairways and greens and has a slope of 122 and rating of 70.0.
