When I think of summer sports, two come to mind: tennis and golf. Especially in Reston, with our two golf courses and 58 tennis courts. On those glorious days when the sun is shining and a light breeze carries the aroma of honeysuckle through the air, getting outside to play golf or tennis just feels like the right thing to do. If you're new to Reston, here is the low down on local golf and tennis:
