Reston National Golf Course first opened for play in 1969

Reston National golf course first opened for play in 1970. The golf course was designed by Edmund B. Ault.

Reston National golf course is a classically designed golf course The course is lined with mature trees on gently rolling landscape. Reston's greens are small and soft enough to hold your shots. The greens are heavily bunkered. The rolling fairways are tree lined, and water comes into play on four holes.

Reston National's par 5s will not beat up the medium length driver as none of the three play longer than 530 yards.

Some long par 4s give the course its teeth, like the 440-yard 13th, which doglegs left and uphill to an elevated green. On the front side, the 408-yard ninth is the course's most severe dogleg par 4, where a slice off the tee lands you in jail on the approach. Another dogleg, the par-4 seventh, is actually the best risk-reward driving hole on the course. Here, a partially blind pond on the left side guards a fairway that wraps around it. You can take off as much yardage on this 408 yarder as you dare, resulting in anything from a sand wedge to a mid iron into the green, depending on how much you can chew off.

The collection of par 3s are especially good. The eighth might be the most difficult, while the 16th is the longest, heading downhill over 200 yards, and a pond on the right swallows up weak slices that can get hung up in the wind.

Reston National Golf Course plays to 6,878 yards from the back tees for a course rating of 73.7 and a slope rating of 136. The course par is 71.
