Whether you want to get in a round of miniature golf with the family, only have time to play 9 holes or want to spend the day on the links, Northern Virginia golf courses cover it all. With both public and private courses designed by many of the most famous names in golf and with plenty of challenges for golfers of all levels.
Some of the names of the courses are familiar to many whether they live in this area or not and others might just be that new little gem that you may want to give a try the next time you get the urge to pull out that nine iron. For military personnel Quantico offers the Medal of Honor Golf Course and Fort Belvoir has two 18 hole courses; Gunston and Woodlawn. The Army Navy Country Club is a private club with two locations in Arlington and Fairfax. Most members of the club are retired military from all services.
The Fairfax County Park Authority maintains eight public golf courses including two courses which have been named in the Top 100 courses to play in the Mid-Atlantic Region, Laurel Hill and Twin Lakes. The Northern Virginia Park Authority maintains three courses and offers golf memberships for the serious golfers who want unlimited access to the links.
For families who are looking for a little bit of fun or a place to entertain kids for a special occasion without the need for a full set of clubs then you might want to check out Upton Hill in Arlington or Cameron Run in Alexandria. For the ultimate experience you might want to check out Top Golf in Kingstowne. With 76 covered all weather suites equipped with the latest in computer technology you can play golf, practice your swing and keep score without ever actually getting your feet dirty.
If you haven't played golf before and are just taking up the sport you might want to brush up on your golf etiquette before hitting the links. When you have perfected your game on the local Northern Virginia golf courses then you might just be lucky enough to play a round at Saint Andrews Links, the home of golf.
