Mission Statement of Army Navy Country Club is to: “… provide, at moderate expense, recreational facilities at, or near, the National Capital for, and to promote social intercourse among those citizens, military and civilian, who are bound together by the fraternal and patriotic spirit of serving the best interests and efficiency of the National Defense.”
Founded in 1924, the Army Navy Country Club or ANCC is a private and member owned recreation facility. Membership is offered primarily to those from active duty and retired commissioned U.S military officers representing all services and ranks from Second Lieutenant and Ensign to General and Admiral. However, ANCC is also home to many civilian members who have served our nation’s government.
The need to create such as club arose in 1924 when officers of the Army, Navy and Marine Corps stationed in Washington needed outdoor recreation facilities. These officers could not afford luxurious membership fees of many and existing private country clubs in the area. While others were put in long waiting lists in such clubs even though they were stationed there for a few years. There was so much inconvenience for them to just have an outdoor space or facility to engage in fitness work out for limited time that they required. Thus came November 11, 1924 when the ANCC was incorporated on the Arlington site.
The ANCC – Army Navy Country Club features:
Golf courses offered where even President William L Clinton retreated to escape pressures of his office. President Dwight D Eisenhower most especially referred to a complicated double dogleg par-5 on the Arlington course as his own private hell. Pro Shops are always fully stocked with the traditional and latest trend of golf fashions and equipment. The ANCC also hosts golf tournaments, events and programs for all their members. The golf staff consists of PGA and LPGA Golf Professionals who have years of teaching experience and have received multiple awards and recognition.
