Raspberry Falls Golf and Hunt Club, Leesburg

Don't be discouraged by the high temperatures, that have finally arrived.  Use the opportunity to take a nice drive to Leesburg and head just a few miles from the Leesburg Corner Premium Outlets, to Raspberry Falls.  This gorgeous community is filled with rolling hills, meandering streams, organic raspberry bushes, and more.  Raspberry Falls' Gary Players course, will encourage you to be your best, with their deep Scottish-style stacked pot bunkers.  Be sure to hit the practicing facility before you hit the course.  After your game, head over to their Hunter's Grille and enjoy an appetizer, a wrap, pulled pork, a burger or whatever tickles your fancy, from their brand new menu.

Once you fall in love with this course, situated in the rolling hills close to Maryland, and benefiting from all that Leesburg has to offer, let me know when you would like to set up a time to look for your new home.

Reston National Golf Course

After last weekends rain, this weekend's weather is looking to be stellar for heading outdoors and hitting the course.  The combination of rain and sunshine couldn't make for greener greens.  This Saturday, find your way to Reston National Golf Course for their Putterpalooza!  They hold this event every Saturday (through July 6th) with contests throughout the day between 8am-2pm.  If you sink a 30-foot putt, you win a free round!  This Friday's Night Golf event is already Sold-out, so be sure to register for their next one, scheduled for June 14th.  Stay tuned to their events tab for more fun this Summer.  Their 150-seat outdoor patio invites you to a quick snack, or a full meal, with amazing views.  If you need a pick-me-up on the course, their fully stocked beverage cart will be by to offer you ice cold drinks or light snacks while on the course.
Ready to hit the shops, after some fun on the course?  Take a hop, skip or jump over to the Reston Town Center.  This is a lovely, lively town center to meander through, do some window shopping, hit the restaurants, take a spin on the ice rink, check out the latest movie, enjoy a concert, or just sit and enjoy the scenery.  Reston Town Center has something for everyone.
There are so many wonderful communities in Reston.  If you are interested in calling Reston your new home town, let me know and we'll schedule an outing to look at some places.

Bull Run Golf Club, Haymarket

Although Saturday looks to be a soggy one.  It might just be the perfect day to take your mom out for an early Mother's Day celebration!  No waiting in a restaurant lobby for an hour to be seated, when you head-in the day before Mother's Day.  Then, treat her to a wonderful day on the course, and take advantage of Sundays sunshine.
If you haven't hit the course at Bull Run Golf Club, you will be amazed by the expansive beauty of their 450+ acres, as today's typical courses tend to only be around 120-130 acres.  Ranging between par-3 and par-5, this course will capture your attention and before you pack your clubs back in your car, you'll be making your next tee time.
While on the course, if you decide you'd like to call Haymarket home, feel free to let me know and I'd be happy to show you some possibilities!
Feel free to check out their website for additional features and information.
