Golf Program

Weekly golf training is provided by certified Golf Professionals, courtesy of the Everybody Golf School, throughout the season. In addition, we schedule 4-5 golf rounds at Fairfax County Golf Parks so that athletes can learn course management and practice for competitive play at Virginia State Games and beyond.

WHO: All skill levels from first time golfers to very experienced golfers

WHERE/WHEN: We practice at two locations: Oak Marr Recreation Center from 2:00 to 3:00 and at the Burke Lake Practice Facility from 3:00 to 4:00, both on Saturday. Practice is held in both Spring and Fall Sessions. The Spring session usually runs from late April through late May (or early June). The fall session generally begins in late August and runs through the end of October but only on non-holiday weekends.
