GolfDC's OPERATOR FAREWELL
Dear GolfDC Community and East Potomac, Langston and Rock Creek Golf Course Team --
Effective Monday, October 5, 2020 -- GolfDC's long-time operator, Golf Course Specialists (GCS), will turn over its operations of the National Park Service golf courses -- East Potomac, Langston and Rock Creek -- to Troon/Honours Golf. Troon/Honours Golf will manage all aspects of the facilities on behalf of the new leaseholder, National Links Trust (NLT).
Our GCS/GolfDC staff will be joining the new operator, Troon/Honours Golf, so most of us will still be at the facilities to welcome you on your next visit. GCS appreciates the many contributions and hard work of our dedicated staff over decades of serving our golfing public in the Nation's Capital. Our success in providing welcoming facilities and services to the community as well as growing the game for tens of thousands would not have been possible without our exceptionally committed and talented team.
GCS also offers our heartfelt thanks to our many new and long-time customers over the decades for choosing the GolfDC facilities. We wish you all many fairways, greens and good times on the public links.
Golf Course Specialists is pleased that the National Park Service has selected the National Links Trust for the long term lease for East Potomac, Langston and Rock Creek. NLT has put together an outstanding team of professionals and their stated mission of protecting endangered municipal golf courses while keeping them affordable and accessible to the public is consistent with how we have operated the golf courses for the last 30 years. NLT has our full confidence, and we look forward to seeing them transform the properties over the term of the lease.
We will miss you all. And may you experience many enjoyable future chapters in the game of golf!
To your good health and safety,
Golf Course Specialists
