Improving national and community assets to foster equitable growth.
Working with the National Park Service, the FC2 is reimagining D.C.’s three public golf courses—Langston, Rock Creek and East Potomac—and the tennis facility at East Potomac to create world-class venues. This project, known as The Langston Initiative, is a community development effort that seeks to restore the District’s public golf courses to their intended state as national recreational assets, while also fostering equitable economic, educational and health outcomes in adjacent communities.
Investment in communities, for communities.
These historic facilities will be catalysts for community development. We will reposition them and, in the process, create engines that support equitable community development in the neighborhoods adjacent to the golf courses.
Drawing global and national attention.
While the initial focus of investments and improvements will be local, there is a great opportunity to leverage The Langston Initiative for a broader audience and impact. These underutilized amenities will be transformed into facilities and spaces that are attractive to avid golfers and tennis players who visit the nation’s capital. They will also help to draw national and international sporting events to D.C.
