Golfing can be a great way to relax, spend time with friends, or step out of the office with coworkers. It allows you to enjoy Virginia’s great outdoors, particularly during the spring and fall. Luckily, there are numerous golf clubs and courses around our Kingstowne apartments. Keep reading below to learn about a few of our favorites.
Mount Vernon Country Club
Located on lands from Mount Vernon’s original plantation is Mount Vernon Country Club. It offers an expansive, beautiful 18-hole course. It prides itself on preserving and incorporating the natural beauty of Northern Virginia into the golfing experience. The course has recently gone through multiple beautification enhancements, with more planned. These enhancements created a beautiful course surrounded by woodlands, preserved local animal habitats, and made the course more environmentally friendly. The course is a great stop for a quick nine holes after work or to dedicate the time to play the full course. The club offers multiple membership options including full memberships and social memberships for those who golf less frequently.
Springfield Golf and Country Club
Built in 1960, Springfield Golf and Country Club offers another breathtaking golf course.
