History


Mount Vernon Country Club is situated on one of George Washington’s original seven farms.  Golf Course Architect Robin Roberts designed the nine-hole golf course which opened on June 3, 1961.  On June 10, 1961, an exhibition match was played by Head Pro Dick Mason, Sam Snead, and two local professionals Bobby Bowers and Al Jamison, where Sam Snead shot 67.  In 1963 the members purchased Mount Vernon Country Club and renamed it Woodlawn Country Club.  Golf Course Architect Ed Ault designed the second nine holes which opened in 1968.  In 1993 Woodlawn Country Club again became Mount Vernon Country Club and dedicated a new clubhouse and swimming pool.  Over the past 20 years the Club has continued to develop including significant golf course improvements which were designed by Golf Course Architect Bill Love.
