In a letter to Fairfax County Supervisor Hudgins, Rescue Reston President Connie Hartke explains why Rescue Reston has expanded its mission to include protection of the North Course (Hidden Creek Country Club) along with the South Course (Reston National Golf Course).

Supervisor Hudgins,

Due to the overwhelming requests that Rescue Reston has received from citizens for advice and support, the Rescue Reston board of directors voted to extend our mission to include Reston’s sister golf course, Hidden Creek, which has the identical land use designation as Reston National.

Mission Statement

Rescue Reston works to defend Reston’s recreational green space at the North Course, Hidden Creek Country Club, and at the South Course, Reston National Golf Course, a 166-acre Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program Golf Course on the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

The land use designation of both properties is private recreation use, more specifically to remain as golf courses.*

Rescue Reston stands with Reston Association and our County Zoning Administrator on the defense of these spaces, and we are ready to call into action any and all resources should any speculator believe they can change either course into even partial residential housing or any site development other than a golf course or comparable open green space.

We appreciate your past and continued support in defending these two critical Reston green spaces.

Connie Hartke, President
Rescue Reston
