Sligo Creek Golf Course – Help Save Sligo Annual Fall Golf Event October 5th

Sligo Golf Course 1st Hole - Silver SpringSligo Creek Golf Course was the original 18 hole course for the Argyle Country Club in the late 1930’s.  The course was designed by Percy Walborn LeDuc (a Silver Spring Resident) in 1937. In the mid 1940’s Argyle Country Club relocated to another area of Silver Spring (out Layhill Road) and the county through MNCPPC took the golf course over as a public course.

When the Capitol Beltway (495) came through Silver Spring in 1964 it sliced the golf course in half.  Check out this cool overlay map of the course as it was laid out in 1937 and what was left after the Beltway went through the property.   Until 2010, the County ran the (now 9 hole) course as a public course.  In 2009 the county wanted to do away with the property as a golf course. There have been proposals of everything from put put golf, recreation center, driving range to plowing it under to use as soccer and ball fields.

The citizens from the surrounding communtiy and beyond do not want this to happen – so we have Preserve Sligo Golf Course. – Save Sligo is a 501C3.
Sligo Creek Golf Course is an oasis of green space, home to many species of wildlife, plants and just plain beautiful in our rather urban “inside the beltway” area of Silver Spring.  Even if you don’t golf – Sligo Golf Course is very worthy of preservation! They are having their Annual Fall Golf Gorgeous Mature Trees - Sligo Golf Course Silver SpringChallenge on October 5th.
