Founded in 1968 as Asociación Juvenil Montañeros del Sagrado Corazón, Montañeros only created a football club ten years later, eventually changing name to Club Montañeros del Sagrado Corazón, only taking part of youth competitions. In 1994, as the club was close to bankruptcy, president Fausto Vázquez took over and improved the club's youth setup, changing its name to Montañeros CF.

In 2003, after the success of the Juvenil squad, Montañeros started his senior club with the support of Banco Gallego, changing name again to Montañeros CF Banco Gallego. It first reached Tercera División in 2007, and promoted to Segunda División B in 2009.

On 1 June 2012, after the club's relegation to the fourth division, Montañeros dissolved its senior squad, only working with the youth categories. In 2014, the club was absorbed by Sporting Universidad da Coruña CF (a club founded in 2004), becoming Atlético Coruña CF and changing name to Atlético Coruña Montañeros CF two years later.
