Not in Washington…
U.S. Open course at Congressional hole by hole
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – The U.S. Open will return to Washington’s Congressional Country Club for a third time when this year’s edition takes place from June 16-19.
Washington’s Congressional Country Club?
You need a geography lesson. Congressional is not in Washington, DC. It’s in Bethesda, Maryland.
Your writers should know that.

Several readers commented on this one. It’s fine to make the point that the club is in the Washington area, but we should always include the actual location as well: GBU Editor
