Gary Huebner named General Manager of Virginia's 1757 Golf Club

VIENNA, Va. -- 1757 Golf Club - managed by Billy Casper Golf (BCG) and located in the Dulles corridor of Northern Virginia, roughly 45 minutes west of Washington, DC - has named Gary Huebner as General Manager.

Huebner will oversee clubhouse operations, turf management, food and beverage, special events, golf instruction and on-site staffing and training at 1757 Golf Club which was recognized by GOLF Magazine as one of the "Best New Courses You Can Play in America" upon its 2010 opening.

With more than 20 years in the golf industry, Huebner was most recently General Manager at Stonewall Golf Club at Lake Manassas (Gainesville, VA).

"Gary Huebner has the experience, knowledge and enthusiasm to continue the rousing success at 1757 Golf Club," says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. "We are proud to welcome him to an already flourishing operation."

"I'm excited to build on the initial accomplishments at 1757," says Huebner, a member of the Professional Golfers' Association. "There's an outstanding team in place, and the golf course, layout, practice facility, clubhouse and amenities have received rave reviews from golfers."

In addition to Huebner, 1757 welcomes Scott Barrowclough as its new Director of Golf. He comes from nearby Westfields Golf Club where he was Tournament Director and Golf Shop Manager.

Fresh for 2013, 1757 has a new artificial range surface on the expansive practice area, 10 minute interval tee times on the weekends, enhanced Player's Club Card benefits and a revised spring-summer menu in the SeventeenFiftySeven restaurant.

Recognized as the "Ultimate Golf Experience," 1757 Golf Club features a 6,623-yard, 18-hole, par-70 golf course crafted by David Heatwole, formerly with Jack Nicklaus' design company. Accuracy off the tee and using every club in the bag makes for fair challenges to all handicappers. Stone walls, gently rolling terrain with elevation changes up to 30 feet and views of the majestic Virginia landscape impress golfers time and again.

Playing experiences crescendo at the signature par-3, No. 18 hole with a daring iron shot 150 to 165 yards (depending on pin placement) over water onto a narrow green. With the clubhouse and patio as eye-pleasing backdrops, low wind is blocked, creating an illusion of calmness, but air swirling at higher elevations emphasize proper club selection.

The horseshoe driving range - 76 hitting stations, including 20 on grass and lighted for night play - presents simulated fairways and target greens. The expansive short-game area includes tees, mini-fairways, bunkers and greens for practice and PGA-certified instruction.

The "Golf Academy at 1757" - the region's most comprehensive, golf learning center with high-tech swing analysis - conducts junior summer camps in addition to individual and group instruction. The 1757 Golf Tour Trailer provides professional club fitting and repair.

1757 Golf Club's richly-appointed, 16,000-square-foot clubhouse is home to the SeventeenFiftySeven restaurant serving authentic American-style fare. The bar, boardroom, meetings and banquet space (combined seating for 250 people) provide a distinguished venue for corporate outings, weddings and other social events. The clubhouse also features two outdoor patios and men's and women's locker rooms.

Named after the year Loudoun County was established, 1757 Golf Club celebrates Virginia's deep presidential history with event rooms named after state natives George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe and Woodrow Wilson.
