Fairfax County Park Authority Golf Courses To Reopen

BURKE, VA — The Fairfax County Park Authority will reopen its golf courses, part of a phased approach of reopening amenities to the public. Trails have remained open, while park features such as parking lots and bathrooms are closed due to the new coronavirus crisis.

The golf course reopening schedule is as follows:

  • May 8: Burke Lake Golf Center, Greendale Golf Course, Laurel Hill Golf Club

  • May 15: Pinecrest Golf Course and Twin Lakes Golf Course (Oaks)

  • May 22: Jefferson Golf Course, Oak Marr Golf Complex and Twin Lakes Golf Course (Lakes)

Golf courses will follow Center for Disease Control and Prevention social distancing and sanitation guidelines. Some of the measures include online payment in advance, expedited check-in, amended cart usage, limited clubhouse occupancy, and takeout only food and beverage service.

Group activities like leagues, instruction, and special events are not operating, and course hours may be limited upon reopening.

Those courses are being offered by Ivy League universities. No, we’re not kidding.
