Golf is a lifetime sport that encourages good manners, builds friendships, embraces nature and the outdoors, and is a fantastic way for all ages to have a good time, socialize and get healthy! And this August, Golf Fairfax has National Golf Month down to a tee! From par-three to championship length, there are courses for social, newbies, and seasoned players alike. Choose from seven courses conveniently located throughout the county, five driving ranges, and free short game putting and chipping greens at all courses. All courses are open year-round, weather permitting. Courses are owned and operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority. (There are also several other independently-operated courses throughout Fairfax County as well. Get the full list here.)
Here are 10 ways to celebrate National Golf Month in Fairfax County this August.
