I hope it happens, but I have my doubts. I have heard about such plans many times.
Anyone have an update on this?I understand that the restoration is underway/done?
Glenn Dale is an interesting option in that area. Probably 30 mins west of USNA.

Is the club actually "going back to the original Flynn holes?" That would be a heavy lift. Some of his holes were abandoned and the replacements from what I remember stand out as being obvious replacements (12, 13, and 14 are new holes with 14 playing to Flynn's original 14th green with new bunkers and from a new fairway 90 degrees offset from the original). Flynn's 3rd and 4th are now under the commissary. After seeing the photo of the new 18th green I'm curious how much attention is being given to keeping Flynn's original green surfaces. I believe his greens were never altered.
