Monday: Rescue Reston’s Second Annual Golf Classic

Golfers at Reston NationalThere is still time to register to take part in Rescue Reston’s second annual Golf Classic fundraiser.

The event, which will raise money for Rescue Reston’s legal bills in the battle to protect Reston National Golf Course from development, is Monday at Reston National.

Rescue Reston was formed in 2012 in response to the golf course owners’ Board of Zoning Appeals case to render the 166-acre golf course as a candidate for residential redevelopment.

The BZA ruled in 2015  that the owner could redevelop without getting a comprehensive amendment, which could ease the path to redevelopment of the land. Rescue Reston, RA and Fairfax County all filed appeals, and the decision was later vacated by a Circuit Court judge.

If you want to play Monday, Rescue Reston says sign up by Saturday.

Fees (greens fee, carts, range balls, dinner and drink ticket):

  • Individual Player $85
  • Foursome $340

Here’s the schedule:

1 p.m. Check-in and Warm Up
2 p.m. Shotgun Start (Format Captain’s Choice)
5 – 7 p.m. Dinner-Awards-Prizes
Raffle ticket drawings 6 p.m.

There is also a free nature walk around and through the course from 3-5 p.m. The walk will be led by resident Bill Burton and Walker Nature Center Naturalist Idalina Walker. To reserve your spot call 703-476-9689 x5 or email [email protected].

Dinner will be provided by Glory Days Grill.  For non-golfers, a dinner donation of $10 will be accepted at the entrance by check, cash or credit card.

    As a reminder, Rescue Reston was a vocal advocate for the Tetra debacle. They lost a lot of credibility with that blunder.
