2 Park Authority Golf Ranges Named Among Top 50 Public Ranges Nationally

Golf RangeThe Burke Lake Golf Center and Oakmont Golf Center ranges were once again recognized among America’s Top 50 Public Ranges by Golf Range Magazine. Golf Range magazine is a publication of the Golf Range Association of America (GRAA) and the Professional Golf Association (PGA).

Oakmont Golf Center’s range, featuring 78 lighted stations with 30 covered and heated stations, was honored for the third time in a row; while Burke Lake Golf Center celebrates its fifth-consecutive recognition for its fully renovated facility. Both ranges are owned and operated by the Fairfax County Park Authority.

Each year GRAA recognizes the best-in-class teaching professionals, public, private and stand-alone ranges. GRAA celebrates facilities that introduced the game of golf to new golfers, while retaining and inspiring current golfers through player development programming, customer engagement and community outreach.

"Golf Fairfax is honored to, once again, have Burke Lake and Oakmont recognized as among the Top 50 public golf ranges across the country. Our family-friendly atmosphere and value-driven services ensure that everyone can enjoy a premium golfing experience – from the new golfer to the seasoned pro," said director of Golf Operations Ryan Carmen.

The ranges were specifically recognized for demonstrating the following best practices:

  • State-of-the art facilities that allow for year-round play.
  • Partnerships with local schools and community groups to grow the game.
  • Campaigns to advertise promotions and specials, such as Family Golf Month.
  • Dedication to welcome new, social and established golf enthusiasts.
  • Robust golf academies that cater to all levels, families, women and youth.

The Burke Lake Golf Center is located at 6915 Ox Road, Fairfax Station. Oakmont Golf Center is located at 3136 Jermantown Road, Oakton.
