Default Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park New Course

This Saturday Loudoun County Parks and Rec will be breaking ground on a new park that will contain an 18 hole wooded course.

I am extremely proud of this as it took me attending more than 7 meetings to get disc golf on the park com plan. This will be a great addition to Loudoun County Disc Golf to compliment the wide open expanse of Franklin Park.

Looking forward to working with the PRCS on the design and implementation of this course.


Loudoun County invites members of the public to attend the groundbreaking for the Hal and Berni Hanson Regional Park on Saturday, June 29, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. The ceremony will take place at the park site on Evergreen Mills Road in Arcola. Signs will be posted on Evergreen Mills Road between Founders Drive and Fleetwood Drive to direct guests to the event entrance.

Features of the 257-acre park will include 17 lighted athletic fields, including two artificial turf fields and one cricket field; five ponds; the historic Lee-Hanson House; an event lodge and nature center; a skate plaza and disc golf course; a splash pad and playground with inclusive features and over 75 acres of passive recreational space. The park will be operated by the Loudoun County Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Services.

The project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2022.

Nice work Matt! That's about an hour's drive for me, but only 30 minutes from Clark's Run so I can see playing there pretty often.

Any ideas on the course design at this point? Aimed at regional pros, intermediate level, weekend hackers?

Looks like Solace Brewing Company is just down the road. Always good planning to combine beer and disc golf.
