Established in 1939, it was named for John Mercer Langston, an African American who was the first dean of law at Howard University School of Law. It was the second desegregated golf course in the District of Columbia, and in 1991, the golf course's first nine holes were added to the National Register of Historic Places. Held Saturdays for 6 weeks (limited to 10 participants each 6-week session). Cost is free. Current session start date is July 20, 2013. This program is filling up fast!
