Country club membership offers many benefits, from meticulously maintained golf courses created by premier designers to top-flight restaurants to activities for the entire family. These four clubs are among the best in Northern Virginia and are worth a look if you’ve been considering joining a country club.
Country Club of Fairfax
The golf course at the Country Club of Fairfax just may be one of the most scenic in our area, thanks to the abundance of mature trees and water features. In addition to golf, the club offers tennis courts and swimming pools, including a zero-entry, hour-glass shaped pool. If you’re new to golf or tennis, or want to refine your skills, you’ll want to make time for a few sessions with the club pros. They’ll help you improve your swing or serve and boost your accuracy.
Three dining venues, the Courthouse Grill, Rust Tavern and Nineteen Forty Seven, are available for full-course dinners or a light snack after your tennis or golf game. Other activities include a wellness center with exercise machines, group exercise classes, personal training, a children’s swim team, massage therapy and a variety of social activities.
Westwood Country Club
A newly renovated 18-hole golf course, 10 tennis courts and an Olympic-size swimming pool make Westwood another good choice if you’re ready to join a country club. The club just hosted the prestigious Middle Atlantic Golf Association Men’s Amateur Championship and is the site of numerous tournaments and golf outings. Westwood also offer a fitness center, pool/tennis clubhouse, youth programs and social activities throughout the year.
The Lounge Patio creates amazing entrees and offers a spectacular view of the golf course’s 18th hole. Whether you’re dining with your family or entertaining clients, you’ll appreciate the mix of formal and casual dining choices at the club.
Chantilly National Golf and Tennis Club
The Chantilly National golf course winds through 200 acres and offers multiple sets of tees to appeal to all levels of players. Individual or group lessons can help you lower your score and improve your short game. Is tennis your game? The club offers three hard and three clay tennis courts that are open seasonally. Chantilly’s pool is a major draw during the summer months, particularly with the kids.
The Grill Room, the club’s traditional dining area, serves breakfast lunch and dinner, while The Upstairs Lounge, offers more casual dining and a popular bar area. If you prefer, you can also reserve a private dining room for parties or business meetings.
Washington Golf and Country Club
Once known as the “Club of the Presidents,” the Washington Golf and Country Club has provided an exceptional country club experience for more than 100 years. The club’s 18-hole golf course offers challenging play and views of the Potomac River and the Washington skyline.
Amenities include a driving range, practice greens, swimming pool, 10 outdoor tennis courts, five indoor tennis courts, a fitness center, formal and informal dining rooms, a cocktail lounge and meeting rooms. Potential members often spend two to three years on the waiting list before a spot becomes available.
