About Burning Tree Club
Burning Tree Club, founded in 1922, is an 18-hole private golf club located just inside the Capital Beltway of Washington DC. Burning Tree was originally designed by C.H. Alison of Colt, Mackenzie, and Alison. We are currently in the process of finishing up a course restoration by famed Gil Hanse, architect of the 2020 U.S. Open course. 16 greens are native soil and 6 greens are sand based all with 007 Bentgrass. Tees are 007 Bentgrass and Penncross. Fairways were recently renovated in 2015, converting the fairways to a blend of 007 and SR1150 Bentgrass. This position will provide an excellent opportunity to learn to manage turf through the summer stress experienced in the transition zone.
