Baltimore County executive Jim Smith, joined today by the Baltimore County Council, Baltimore County Golf (BCG) board members, executives, golf pros and other guests, officially unveiled the new name of Longview Golf Course -- Fox Hollow Golf Course.
In addition to unveiling the new name, Fox Hollow opened its new training center and driving range on Padonia Road in Timonium (directly across from Dulaney High School). The renovated Fox Hollow Golf Course and Training Center will be a place where golfers can hit the links or sharpen their golf skills.
The new Fox Hollow Training Center features 60 practice tees.
The state-of-the-art Fox Hollow Training Center is the largest training facility in Baltimore County, boasting more than 60 practice tees and natural-grass training areas with bunkers. The training center also includes covered tees with lights and heaters for those late- and early-season practice sessions. PGA professionals also now have access to video swing analysis equipment to help make their lessons even more effective.
“We are excited to open the Fox Hollow Training Center and let our golfers begin to experience the major improvements firsthand and gain access to cutting-edge, high-tech training equipment,” said Chris Hanson, head golf professional at Fox Hollow.
The final phase of construction (renovations to the back nine) will be completed and open for play in July. Until then, and during the construction, golfers can still play 18 or nine holes at Fox Hollow.
