"The special Furlough Freedom offer, reflecting a 65 percent discount on Lansdowne's retail rates, is good through Nov. 30," the Leesburg, Virginia resort said in a statement Oct. 14.
Citing "tough times" for federal employees, the resort wants to provide an opportunity to "forget about the politics... and spend some time in a place that is stress free," said Michael Snapkoski, Lansdowne's director of sales and marketing.
Its de-stress facilities include 45 holes of golf designed by Robert Trent Jones and Greg Norman; 12,000-square-foot Spa Minérale with 13 treatment rooms; five swimming pools; three tennis courts...
As Will Rogers once said "I guess there is nothing that will get your mind off everything like golf. I have never been depressed enough to take up the game, but they say you get so sore at yourself you forget to hate your enemies."
