Loudoun Noise Rules Updated for Golf Courses

Loudoun supervisors have updated the county’s rules on excessive noise in residential areas to provide an exemption for early-morning noise from golf courses.

In 2016, supervisors updated the rules to prohibit a number of noisy activities before 7 a.m. and after 9 p.m. in residential areas, including lawn mowing. Supervisor Tony R. Buffington (R-Blue Ridge) then told board member’s he’d become aware that had gotten in the way of business at golf courses, which mow their grounds in the early morning hours.

After a public hearing with no speakers and a unanimous vote Nov. 14, golf courses in neighborhoods may now mow their lawns before 7 a.m.
