Goose Creek Golf Club Leesburg, VA – 5/24/2009
On a beautiful Memorial Day weekend, the Goose hosted a holiday scramble for seventy some golfers who stayed in town for the long weekend. While the turnout might seem large given the smaller fields in this year’s outings, Goose has enjoyed a busy year so far. Dramatic improvements in the course, coupled with good service and a new look to carts and clubhouse have seen record numbers of golfers enjoying this classic local track. Despite the heavy play don’t fear a slow pace of play, as they even marshal their own outings to ensure a comfortable pace. The course lost one hole for road construction so a new hole was built, and another hole revamped. The new par three is a much better hole, the remodeled one a welcome relief from previous back-to-back par fives. The real course improvements are more subtle, like the adding of 40 yards to the seventeenth hole. Now this over 400 yard par four demands a long accurate uphill tee shot to set up an approach to a sloping green. Look for these changes as you play the Goose this year. But, above all, play it this season. Ayce
