Members of Congressional Country Club voted to continue to host the Quicken Loans National, formerly the AT&T National, in 2016, 2018 and 2020, CSN Washington has confirmed.

The tournament, hosted by Tiger Woods to benefit his foundation, will be played this year in late June at the Bethesda club and has become a staple in the Washington region since 2007.
Congressional has hosted the tournament five times since then. In 2010 and 2011, the tournament was played at Aronimink Golf Club outside Philadelphia while Congressional prepared to host the 2011 U.S Open.
Woods won the tournament in 2009 and 2012, and has repeatedly voiced his desire to stay at Congressional. His foundation does a lot of work to benefit the military, inviting service personnel and their families in the D.C. region to attend the tournament for free.

On March 24, Woods, along with PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem, announced the title sponsorship change from AT&T to Quicken Loans. When the tournament was first announced in 2007, Woods was clearly the brightest star in golf. He is currently ranked No. 1 in the world rankings but has not won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open. Woods missed his last tournament with a back injury.

The Washington Post reported the event will be played at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va in 2015, though the remaining alternate years for the tourney has not been announced.
