What could be better than a quick nine holes with friends before a party to watch the final round of the Masters? The answer might be to have the winner of the Masters play out like the happy ending to a morality play. But we all know about that well publicized gem, so how about some golf course chat.
Oak Marr was the lovely scene for a nine hole walk in the park-like setting managed by Fairfax County. Unlike many par three courses, Oak Marr has sand, water, woods, and elevation changes. While no one hole stands out as a #17 at TPC Sawgrass, the holes offer enough challenge to sharpen your skills. Bring your sticks as the average hole length is over 160 yards from the blue tees, with one hole playing over 200 yards.
Pace of play is well regulated so expect to breeze around the loop in under two hours for sure. We made it in one and a half hours!
The practice facility is one of the best around. A large decked driving range is well paired with perhaps the largest practice green in the area. It even has a bunker.
