Washington D.C.: Where Golfing and History Collide
The nation's capital is steeped in rich history and the Langston Legacy Golf Course is no exception. The facility, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991, opened as a 9-hole segregated course for blacks in 1939. Today, it's a public 18-hole course with affordable green fees and spectacular views of the Anacostia River and National Arboretum.
Washington D.C. also boasts two other public courses, Rock Creek Park Golf Course and East Potomac Park Golf Course. If you're looking for a challenge, try the back nine at Rock Creek, where your ball could get lost in the thick woods on both sides of the fairways. The good news is green fees are cheap. East Potomac has only slightly higher rates than the other two facilities, but offers something for golfers at any level. There are three courses, as well as miniature golf on the facility.
