Remembering Lee Elder

Looking Back at the Langston Junior Boys and Girls Golf Club

Langston Golf Course's American Odyssey

Acquaintances discuss the life and legacy of Lee Elder who died in 2021 at the age of 87 and is remembered as an inspiration to many young men and women of color for becoming the first Black golfer to play in the Masters competition, among other contributions. 

Langston Junior Boys and Girls Golf Club (LJRGC) was originally established in 1990 under the umbrella of the nationally based “Hook-a-Kid-on-Golf " program. In 1997, the organization applied for and received its own non-profit designation and hosts 200 boys and girls every summer from late-June through August in Langston Junior’s programs.

Located atop an abandoned city dump in Northeast DC, Langston—named after John Mercer Langston, Howard University’s first law school dean and the first black man from Virginia elected to Congress—opened in 1939 with grass missing and just nine holes. (The other nine were added in 1955.) From these humble beginnings, Langston developed into one of the most important Black golf courses in America- serving as the center of a vibrant community of players and clubs (such as Wake Robin and Royal G.C.), host of prominent UGA tournaments, and a place to see-and-be-seen for African American celebrities, politicians and talented golf pros.
