Did you know?

Laurel Hill was created on land that was formerly the Laurel Hill Planation home of Major William Lindsay, a colonial patriot and Virginia gentleman who died in 1792. From 1910 until its closure in 2001, this was also the site of the District of Columbia's Corrections facility, known as the Lorton Reformatory (and before that the Occoquan Workhouse). The golf course, built in 2005, is managed by the Fairfax County Park Authority and in 2013 played host to the USGA's 88th U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship.
