Rated 4 out of 5 by Glenn9750297 Great But Tough Course
Challenging course with water hazards and narrow fairway necks on many holes. Great conditions, typically, but slow play even during the week. Don't go right!

1757 is not a tough course. More of a thoughtful course as it requires making accurate shots. Hit it straight and all will be well. If to, you'll lose a bunch of balls. All staff incredibly friendly.

Good practice facility and nice setting near the Dulles Airport. Very good layout and challenging if you play from a back tee. If you can't hit straight, bring lots of balls.

1757 is a course that is pretty comparable to many other courses in the D.C. area. It is a course that is very fair in terms of length, course conditions and overall challenges. Some holes have a links-like feel, with long grass on either side of the fairways. If you go into the tall stuff, keep an eye on your ball because it is often findable/playable as long as you can track it down. The fairways and greens are in good shape, and the rough is not too penalizing. The one major challenge on this course is water. Water comes into play on the majority of the holes, so it is critical to hit your driver in fairways on this course. The par-3's are difficult as well, with the real bear presenting itself on number 7. The scorecard has this par-3 at 210, but yesterday it was 268 yards. I should also mention that 1757 has the nicest range/practice facilities of any course I have ever played (including Congressional). All in all, I like this course a lot. I don't play it much because their in-season rates can be a little on the high side, but I'd certainly recommend this course to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jlestramonte Aerated - no warning!
Showed up to play the course for the first time really looking forward to it. Learned at check-in that they had aerated the greens 3 days before. They gave us a $10 discount off the tee time, but, playing so infrequently, I don't want to play on greens that have been punched and have sand all over them. Then they paired our twosome up with another, while there were twosomes all over the course - and we had to continuously let them play through. Disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gdietz50 1757 - Challenging Course
Played 1757 this past Sunday and I can tell you this is a must play for anyone looking for a challenge.
The overall condition of the course for mid August was very good. The tee boxes, fairways, and greens were all in very good shape. Greens rolled true and above average for speed. Fairways were well maintained and very green. As one would expect, the rough off the fairways was pretty burnt (dormant) out.
After the first few holes my impression of the course was that it was wide open. I quickly found out that this was not the case. This course really challenges you to make accurate shots both on the tee box and fairways. Anything outside of the first cut of rough is either going to be lost due to the length of the grass, or it's going to be marked with RED or WHITE stakes. Looking at some of the past reviews where people commented on bringing lots of extra golf balls is not far from the truth. I lost more balls that day than I have in 10 years. Bottom line is, like any other course, if you can keep your ball in the fairway, you can score on this course.
What will bring me back to 1757 is the facility and the staff. From the time we checked in at the Pro Shop to when we left the restaurant/bar, everyone treated us like they appreciated our business. And to me, that's the easiest way to get me to come back and play.
