Notice for Campers:

LEAVE YOUR FIREWOOD AT HOME!!

One of the most important things we can do to protect Virginia's trees and forest diversity is stop moving firewood. New infestations of tree-killing insects and diseases are often first found in campgrounds and parks. Why? Because people have accidently spread invasive species when they brought firewood along with them. In Virginia, there are numerous counties under quarantines, issued by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, due to an invasive insect pest or disease. These quarantines restrict the movement of firewood or wood by products from certain tree species. Moving firewood in violation of a quarantine is a class 1 misdemeanor and upon conviction, you could be subject to; confinement in jail for up to twelve months and a fine of $2,500.00 or both. For more information on areas under quarantine, go to http://www.vdacs.virginia.gov/news/releases-a/062212eabexpand.shtml

Lake Winds Golf Course

Lake Winds is ideal for the mid-handicapped golfer, with thirteen lakes and ponds coming into play on its mountain-style layout. Mid-sized, mildly undulating greens provide a challenge without demanding precision, and the fairways feature some elevation change, so you can expect the occasional uneven lie. Hole #6, a 490-yard, par 5, plays downhill to a green protected on all sides by sand bunkers. With scenic mountain views, this course provides for an enjoyable round of golf away from the city.

If you are like most average golfers, you just want to enjoy an afternoon of friendly competition with your buds on the links, without giving up a day's pay, or feeling guilty for selfishly indulging yourself.
