Best Public Golf Courses in District of Columbia

Washington D.C. comprises 68.3 square miles of land squeezed between the Potomac River on the Virginia side and Maryland. It has a resident population of 680,000 which swells to over 1,000,000 during office hours, and is golf starved with one golf course per 226,000 residents. There are three municipal golf courses operated by the National Park Services and include East Potomac, Langston, and Rock Creek.

East Potomac, also known as Hains Point Golf Course, is located on the Hains Point Island on the Potomac River and usually gets the nod for the best public golf course in Washington, D.C. if only for its setting in the shadow of the Washington Monument and the scenic setting on the River.
