Spotlight Article Washington DC Langston Golf Course


Just when you think more records can't be broken, think again. On Wednesday, July 11, 2001, The Golf Channel's Drive, Chip & Putt Jr. Golf Skills Competition saw another record broken. It's appropriate that this record was broken at Langston Golf Course, a facility with a lot of golfing history.
On July 11, not one, not two, but three girl golfers qualified for The Chesapeake Regional Finals at The Links at Lighthouse Sound in Bishopsville, Maryland, on Saturday, July 21, 2001.
This isn't a record because more than one girl qualified, but the girls qualified in each age group. Hannah Pierce took third place in the 7&8 division after winning a putting playoff. Jasmine Hughes of Trenton, New Jersey, captured second place in the 9&10 division after a putting playoff, and Sandra Changkija from Kingstowne, Virginia, captured first place in the 11&12 division.
Additionally, for the third time in the last five Drive, Chip & Putt Jr. Golf Skills Competition Events, brothers qualified for a regional event. This time the Ayliff Brothers from Falls Church Virginia qualified for The Chesapeake Regional Finals.
Congratulations to these and all of our participants for a great event at Langston Golf Course.
