Academy History


ENROLLMENT: 4500+ annually

The GolfDC Academy, (formerly Capital City Golf School) founded in 1989, has decades of experience in designing and executing high-quality, comprehensive golf instructional programs in the greater Washington, DC, area. Currently, at our three locations in the Washington Metro area, we serve over 4500 students annually, including key participation by women and junior golfers.


The Academy has experience in all aspects of the “business” of golf instruction – conceiving player development programs, instructor development programs and establishing best business practices.  


To serve its 4,500 students annually across all locations, the GolfDC Academy has grown from a staff of four (4) teaching professionals in 1989 to a staff of up to 35 instructors. With our full service team, the Academy's instructor and sales staff are here to serve you!  


For over 30 years, Golf Course Specialists, Inc. has committed its entire hospitality and agronomic team to be “Leaders in Public Golf”. We have served over 100,000 public golfers annually across the three National Park Service golf courses – East Potomac, Langston and Rock Creek.  And our GolfDC Academy instructional team has taught 50,000 alumni.


Since the Academy founding, our vision has been to bring new golfers into the game and keep those involved connected to the game. This concept is the cornerstone of the GCS’ commitment to “pioneering player development.” We continue in our mission to keep the sport of golf accessible and affordable for all.  The Academy at each of our golf facilities spearheads programs that meet the local community needs of that location to ensure our success in growing the game!
