With hundreds of houses neatly tucked along a series of quiet cul-de-sacs, the Virginia Oaks neighborhood in Gainesville is like any other upscale golf course community in Northern Virginia, except for one key difference.
There isn’t a golf course at the center of it anymore.
Though the rolling hills and tree stands once associated with the Virginia Oaks Golf Course still stand in the middle of the 563-home community just off U.S. 29, the putting greens have turned various shades of brown and weeds populate the fairways.
