Program areas at National Links Trust

National Links Trust (nlt) operates three municipal golf courses in Washington, dc: east potomac golf Links, langston golf course and rock creek park golf. These properties generate revenue through regular golf course operations; however, as part of the organization's mission to provide accessible, affordable golf to local communities, the rates are well below market value. To better serve the community of golfers in Washington, dc, nlt invested in the following in 2022:- improving course conditions through better maintenance practices - adding technology to the driving range experiences to better serve customers without significant price increases- extensive planning and review for the eventual renovation of the three courses. This included engineering services, historical significance review, and environmental review.the jack vardaman workforce development program returned for another year at langston golf course. The program was expanded to include approximately 200 youth and adolescents. This group took part in an immersive learning experience designed to equip them with skills in agronomy, tournament administration, golf course operations, and caddying. With this, nlt is looking to build the next generation of golf course professionals.a significant focus on removing invasive vegetation from our properties was made in 2022. Through a combination of paid and volunteer work, nlt removed more than several hundred square yards worth of invasive vegetation that harmed the local ecosystems and contributed to poor playing conditions. The result of this investment has been an improved local ecosystem that can better serve as a habitat for native plants and animals, as well as improved course conditions.
