The Course

Par 72
6,340 yards (5,800m)

This hilly 18-hole course is considered one of the best public owned corses in the district. It's also the only golf course in the city with water hazards.


This course is not for the faint of heart as it contains two 500+ yard par-5s. However the course does offer Family Tees that do offer some relief for beginner players. The Course can be played  in 9 or 18 holes.



Langston Golf Course offers a 30+ stall driving range 
with its own parking entrance.
No Reservations required, first-come first-serve.   Self-service range ball machines accept credit cards and our GolfDC Range Card.   Basket prices are the same for all forms of payment.    And we offer three basket sizes  (small, medium, large).
