Congratualtions to Langston Golf Course and The Wake Robins!
Our historic home golf course, Langston Golf Course and The Wake Robins Women's golf group were inducted into the National Black Golfer's Hall of Fame on March 23, 2013. Come out on June 8, 2013 from 1-5 at Langston Golf Course to celebrate this accomplishment.
Langston Golf Course, Washington, D.C.
Located just minutes from Capitol Hill, Historic Langston Golf Course is a part of the National Park System.
Langston Golf Course opened in 1939 as a 9-hole course. The course was built as a segregated golf facility. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and is named for John Mercer Langston, the first African American popularly elected to office (1855), founder and first dean of Howard University’s Law Department, first president of Virginia State University, and the first black congressman elected from Virginia (1888). Frequented by golfers of many ethnic backgrounds, Langston is traditionally played by African American golfers.
Over Langston’s long history, African American golfers have been consistently loyal to Langston. Since the 1930s, it has been the home course of the Royal Golf Club, and the Wake Robin Golf Club, the nation’s first golf clubs for Black men and women, respectively.
Wake-Robin Golf Club, Washington, D.C.
Thirteen women held their first meeting at the home of Helen Webb Harris at 79 R Street NW. She was an educator and the wife of a prominent Washington physician. Each founding member was married to an associate of Washington's all-Black, all-male Royal Golf Club, and they were tired of staying home on weekends while their husbands played. They weren't trying to get into country clubs; they just wanted to get on the golf course.
