Park Authority previews golf programs at the Taste

Fairfax County’s golf programs, including upgrades at the Pinecrest Golf Course in Annandale, will be showcased at the Taste of Annandale.

The Fairfax County Park Authority is a Silver-level sponsor of the Oct. 13 street festival, and Roberta Korzen, the Park Authority’s golf marketing specialist is bringing a portable putting green, giveaways, and information about fun things to do on golf courses.

Fairfax County’s golf programs have something for everyone, Korzen says, including new programs and events for women, beginning golfers, and youths.

The Pinecrest Golf Center, at 6600 Little River Turnpike on the eastern edge of Annandale, is the only golf course that offers footgolf, a newish sport played on a golf course with a soccer ball.

Pinecrest has a newly renovated indoor training facility known as the Valis Family Golf Learning Center. The center is named for Wayne and Angela Valis, who contributed $25,000 for a new TrackMan4 Golf Simulator.

The updated golf center also has three new indoor practice bays, improved lighting, more natural light via skylights and windows, and more space for private golf parties. The nine-hole golf course is par 35, and there is an outdoor practice area with nets.

The Park Authority is having a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Valis Family Golf Learning Center on Sept. 15, 11:30 a.m. To RSVP, contact 703-324-8702 or Parkmail@fairfaxcounty.gov by Sept. 10.
