This is a very straightforward course without any tricks or hidden hazards. Even though you can see all your trouble coming, you'll still have to hit the ball long in order to score well. One of the more difficult holes in #17, a 344-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot over water that creeps into the fairway along the right side. The green is also well protected by three bunkers.

Bretton Woods update, Apr 13, 2009
from Bethesda, MD
|Just wanted to share a few updates: First, the course is longer than listed. It's about 7,100 yds from the tips and about 6 and a half from the Blue and White tees. Second, while the club remains private, membership is no longer limited to IMF/World Bank employees. (I could be misinformed, but I think the course is also open to non-members on special days/times, with greens fees running between $70 to $80). Third, I believe guest greens fees are around $40 or $50 on weekends. Fourth, as of March 2009, newly renovated greens have now opened; as of April 2009, Bermuda fairways still dormant.|

grip it and rip it!, Jul 06, 2005

|fun, spacious layout, with a pleasently isolated feel about the whole course. wide open and well groomed, the fairways welcome the big hitter. the greens tend to be soft (BW is bordered by the Potomac R.) but also roll quick and true. if your crazy, you can play the black tees, but even for the low capper, blues are the proper challenge-you still have a 200yd shot over water at the par3 9th, and a 448yd, dead uphill, OB on right, par4 18th. its a cool course, you'll have fun.|

Bretton Woods, Mar 15, 2004
|reviewer: Ted Alden

|I played the course in mid-March as the guest of an IMF employee (the only way to get on). The course was in excellent condition and the greens in particular are superb. It is a fairly flat layout with a handful of elevated greens and tee boxes. The fairways are pretty wide and even if you miss by a bit it's hard to get into much trouble. The challenge is around the greens -- many have narrow openings and if you miss either side you are left with a ticklish pitch, often over sand, to fast greens that slope away. Signature hole is the 9th, a par 3 that requires a good carry over water. When I played (a Sunday afternoon)the course was quiet and we were able to walk, carry our clubs and move right along. A real treat.|
