UPDATE: Bullet Dodged. Obama's fave golf course at Andrews AF base remains open while services at the base are shut down. Whew! Crisis avoided!
Oh no. With the shutdown comes tragedy. The District’s three public golf courses are shut down. The courses are owned by the National Park Service and operated by Golf Course Speciliasts via contract.
Golf Course Specialists sent an emergency email to golfers stating that the the courses at East Potomac, Langston and Rock Creek would remain closed as long as the federal government does. “When the federal government re-opens, the golf courses will be open as soon as possible during regular operating hours."
Of course there are several other golf courses in the area like Lake Presidential Golf. Westfields Golf Club, Jefferson District, Henson Creek University of Maryland Pinecrest Silgo Creek Paint Branch Falls Road.
