Tiger Woods’ Quicken Loans National will be played at TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in Potomac, Maryland, in 2017.

It will be the first PGA Tour event at the course — formerly known as TPC Avenel — since it hosted the Kemper Open from 1987-2006. The club underwent significant renovation in 2008 and has been hoping to lure a Tour event since then.

The opportunity arose when Congressional Country Club members decided they would only host the Quicken Loans National every other year for the time being. The 2015 tournament will be held at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia, before returning to Congressional in 2016 and now TPC Potomac in 2017.

“We believe TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm will prove to be an outstanding test for the Quicken Loans National field in 2017,” Charlie Zink, co-chief operating officer for the PGA Tour, said in a statement. “With the extensive work that was done in 2008, the players who competed there previously will find it to be a much different golf course and tournament facility. We very much look forward to bringing the Quicken Loans National to TPC Potomac in three years.”
