BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- Congressional Country Club members have voted to keep Tiger Woods' tournament at its golf course every other year through 2020.

The Quicken Loans National returns to Congressional on June 26-29. Club members voted over the weekend for the PGA Tour event to return to Congressional in 2016, 2018 and 2020. It was crucial vote to keep the tournament in the Washington, D.C., area.

The Tiger Woods Foundation, which runs the tournament, said the 2015 event would be played at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Va. The RTJ Club has hosted the Presidents Cup four times, most recently in 2005.

Still to be determined is where the tournament will be played in 2017 and 2019. Woods has said he wants it to stay in the Washington area.
