Pinecrest Golf Course, Alexandria, Virginia

Short on time?  Looking for a challenging, narrow course to play?  Look no further than Fairfax County's par 35, 9-hole executive course.  Nestled between ponds and hills, you will need to keep your focus, if you are looking to keep your scorecard low.  Be sure to stop by their fully-stocked clubhouse complete with a snack shop and a full service pro shop.  Pinecrest offers 5,000 square feet of putting green for you to practice your short game.  Also offered, are 10 cages of driving nets.  Tee times can be made on the same day, at this public course.  Weather permitted, Pinecrest is open all year, with the exception of inclement weather.  However, this course does offer an indoor practice area that is open even on those rainy, dreary days.  This allows you that added time to work on both your swing and your putting.

The nearby community of Pinecrest Heights is located next to Mason District Park.  This park will keep you and your family moving.  Enjoy some games of tennis, soccer, baseball, watch your kids giggle as they play on the playground, or put on your walking shoes and check out the trails.  If you are interested in looking at homes in Fairfax County, please feel free to contact me and we can schedule a time to search for your new home.  Alexandria has so much to offer with all of their trails, shops, metro rails, and parks.  Let's go take a look!
