Founding life members include William H. Taft, Woodrow Wilson, Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover. It is currently an annual stop on the PGA Tour, with the AT&T National hosted by Tiger Woods. Previously, Congressional hosted the Kemper Open until its move to nearby TPC at Avenel in 1987. While Avenel was under renovation in 2005, the tournament returned to Congressional, then known as the Booz Allen Classic. Congressional hosted its third U.S. Open in 2011.
