Steeped in History
Before Chantilly National became the area’s leading country club, it was a dairy farm owned by John Rose and his son, Roy. From 1921 to 1951, the Roses tended livestock where our Members gather, and in 1937 built the barn that serves as our beloved clubhouse.
The Roses sold their farm in 1951 to the Wimsatt Farm Syndicate, and in 1958 the Kena Temple Shriners of Alexandria bought the land — envisioning a golf course and temple. Construction began in 1959 under local golf course architect Ed Ault, and the course opened for play on Memorial Day, 1960.
When the Shriners faced challenges at the stunning course, a loyal group of players purchased the property under the name Chantilly Inc. — a nod to the construction of nearby Chantilly National Airport, now known as Dulles. Today, we build upon this rich history as a proud Member of the Invited network of Clubs.
A Retreat for the Whole Family
Our Members agree — Chantilly National Golf and Country Club presents exceptional amenities for all ages and interests. At the Club’s heart is our historic clubhouse, featuring delicious dining, refined ambience and beautiful sunset views. The Ed Ault-designed golf course is a spectacular diversion, while our lighted tennis courts offer both hard and clay surfaces. A sparkling Olympic swimming pool and children’s play pool anchor our aquatics center.
While these amenities are second to none, it’s people that make the Club a truly special place. With a full calendar of dining, recreation, holiday and entertainment events each month, friendships are forged in an environment that feels like home.
