    This course replaces the former Glade Pool course which the Club has had to abandon because of limited parking at Glade Pool and the potential for conflict with the religious community that also meets there on Sunday mornings.

If a large crowd is expected, you'll more likely find a parking space at the start if you access the parking lot from Steeplechase instead of Reston Parkway.
