Golf Courses To Be Reopened In Fairfax County

Fairfax County Park Authority has announced that its phased reopening would open golf courses on May 8. Laurel Hill Golf Club members Kelly Towns from Burke, and Jim Poodiack from Springfield, were among the first to get tee times. Towns enjoyed coming during work breaks before the club closure due to the coronavirus outbreak. Poodiack was there because he had not played for a while and hoped the activity would aid his overall fitness.

According to, “Club manager, Ryan Carmen, notes that it has been 55 days since the club was open before this phase in. He’s happy to see members readily returning, with full tee times; at least on the good weather days. The courses at Burke Lake and Greendale also re-opened on May 8. The remaining courses open on May 15: Pinecrest, and Twin Lakes (Oaks); and on May 22 for Jefferson, Oak Marr, and Twin Lakes (Lakes). Disc golf courses, unlike their traditional sports cousins, remain closed to group use.”

As per, “The county’s golf facilities are among the first to reopen. Select farmer’s markets and garden plots have seen phased opening as well. The Park Authority had closed parks, facilities, and parking lots in the virus response. Only trails remained open for individual, not group, use. Golf provides an important revenue source for the Parks Authority. Rates at Laurel Hill range from $49 off-peak in twilight times to $104 for prime time play.”
