Langston Golf Course

National Capitol Parks East

Washington, D.C.

Located minutes from Capitol Hill, Langston isn’t only part of the Park System but it is included in the National Registry of Historic Places given its legacy of promoting African-American golf. Originally opened in 1939, it was only the second course in the district that permitted African-Americans to play. It was a favorite of players such as Joe Louis, Althea Gibson, pros Ted Rhodes, Calvin Peete, and Charlie Sifford, and from 1978–81, Lee Elder, the first African-American to compete in the Masters, was the course manager. It’s an 18-hole layout, open year-round from dawn to dusk. The website includes tee time reservations and more information.
