CLUB OVERVIEW:

Founded on July 1, 1961, International Country Club was named in part because the future permanent site of the club was to be located near Dulles International Airport. The present 18-hole golf course was opened in 1961, but the first clubhouse there was not constructed until 1968. This was the same year that the club's lease on the “town” course expired, at which time the “town” course and clubhouse were closed and all operations were moved to the present location. Later, in recognition of operating in only one location, the club began doing business as “International Country Club.” From the outset, it was clear that International was to be more than a golf course and a clubhouse. The first swimming pool at the club's present location was opened in 1970. The club's first tennis courts were opened in 1974. International's golf course is widely recognized as one of the finest in Northern Virginia. In 2002, it was listed by the Virginia State Golf Association as one of the top 25 golf courses in the state of Virginia. Indeed, International was one of only four courses in Northern Virginia to be so highly regarded. In 1966, Golf Digest magazine included International among the nation's 200 toughest golf courses. Over the years, International also has hosted numerous USGA, VSGA, Middle Atlantic Golf Association events, including U.S. Open and U.S. Senior Open qualifying and the Virginia State Open.
