    About the Club:

    Argyle Country Club was founded in Washington D.C. in late 1921. The Clubs first course was in the Petworth area, also utilized by Columbia Country Club and then Woodmont. The Club then relocated to an area near Colesville and Forest Glen roads, now Silgo Creek Golf Course. Then in 1945 the Club moved to its current location. The course was designed by Perc LeDuc, then a member of the Club. The Club has approximately 500 members, family and individual. Argyle is known for having some of the area’s top golfers. Argyle’s Men’s A-Team won the WMGA A-Team Championship in 2001, 2008, 2014 and 2020 and the Ladies A-Team won the MSGA Team Championship in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
