DULLES, VIRGINIA – May 18, 2021 – Heritage Golf Group announced the purchase of a long-term leasehold interest in 1757 Golf Club in Dulles, Virginia, a centrally located golf club in the rapidly growing Ashburn, Herndon, and Reston areas of Northern Virginia.
“This well-located vibrant golf club with its reputable 18-hole course, expansive lighted practice area with indoor and outdoor heated and shaded bays aligns with our company’s goal to grow the game of golf. The teaching professionals and their active individual and group lessons along with robust junior camps and clinics for all ages are well aligned with our company’s growth initiatives. We’re excited about creating even more innovative golf and entertainment experiences that attract and retain loyal golfers,” said Mark Burnett, Heritage Golf Group’s CEO and President.
Heritage will operate the club under a long-term lease with Lerner Enterprises and the Tower Companies.
