Welcome to Bannockburn

In 1946, Bannockburn’s founders, intending to build a cooperative neighborhood, purchased the Bannockburn Golf Club in Bethesda, MD. Although the dream of a true co-op was never realized, the spirit of community and cooperation perseveres to this day. Bannockburn is home to many civically-engaged residents who organize and support gatherings and special events held throughout the neighborhood or in our community meeting place – the historic Bannockburn Clubhouse – and who volunteer on boards of neighborhood organizations that enhance our quality of life.

Bannockburn also takes pride in its inclusive, close-knit community, excellent schools, proximity to natural attractions and downtown Washington, DC, and plethora of residents who have lived here for decades.

As many of us in Bannockburn like to say, “Bannockburn is less a place than it is a state of mind.”
