The Golf

Aptly named his “Virginia Masterpiece,” Arnold Palmer himself designed Fawn Lake’s award winning 18 hold championship course, featuring 7,010 yards of tree-lined fairways and meticulously manicured greens.  One frequent golfer proclaims, “[Fawn Lake is a] Fantastic golf course, challenging yet fair design and impeccably groomed.”

The Amenities

Neighborhood amenities abound with charming, mature tree-lined streets.  The Olympic-size swimming pool rests along Fawn Lake’s shores, overlooked by the neighborhood clubhouse that offers panoramic lake views.  The beautiful, newly renovated clubhouse building is available to residents to rent for special events, in addition to the rustic Pole Barn which also features a community garden for neighbors to enjoy.
