Sports & Recreation

There is so much to do in Montgomery County, from sight-seeing historical sites to taking in the rich natural landscape, but haven’t forgotten those adventure seekers and athletes that also like to get active! We have compiled a pretty comprehensive list of recreational and sports activities you can do in the Washington, DC, area…and that’s separate than our list of outdoor adventures!

Golf, Anyone?

Golf remains one of the most popular activities that Montgomery County has to offer. There are so many golf courses, they are hard to count. But we counted them anyway! You can choose from at least 9 public courses and 22 private courses. There are also plenty of country clubs and tournaments for competitors and fans of all levels.

Montgomery County Loves Athletes

Montgomery County loves all athletes, no matter your sport. In fact, the area is home to more than 410 parks, including ball fields, tennis courts, and athletic complexes. The Maryland SoccerPlex is a popular destination for soccer teams and our own Olympic athletic training centers are the top choice for competitive athletes.

But don’t worry; we’re all about having fun if you’re just looking for ways to get your family active together! We have an ice rink, plenty of outdoor parks, our own Capital Bikeshare, and did we mention hundreds of national, state, and neighborhood parks?
