Spotlight: Lake Presidential GC


Votes have been cast and the results are in.  Lake Presidential Golf Club is one of Maryland’s best.

Set amid 1,200 acres of rolling, wooded terrain, the Upper-Marlboro-area course is ranked No. 3 on Golfweek’s 2015 “Best Courses You Can Play” state-by-state list, a spot its held for the past couple of years.

Located less than 20 miles from the White House, Lake Presidential is a true golfing oasis.  When the course opened in 2008, GOLF Magazine called it a “Top 10 New Course in the United States.”  Golf Channel dubbed it “the best kept secret in DC golf.”


Well, the secret’s out.

The 7,230-yard, par-72 is a favorite among locals, drawing golfers from DC, Baltimore and beyond.  Created by the same developers that brought us Kiawah Island (SC) and PGA West (CA), Lake Presidential will test every club in your bag.  Generous landing zones off the tee make way to contoured green complexes which demand precise approach shots.  Five sets of tees, handsomely groomed playing surfaces, white sand bunkers and picturesque streams combine for one memorable round of golf.

The course’s routing is second to none.  The 570-yard, par-5 eighth is as demanding as it is beautiful.  An accurate tee shot is a must if you want to go for the green in two, and the approach is no cake walk as the narrow green is guarded by bunkers and the course’s namesake lake.   The 225-yard, par-3 ninth and risk-reward 515-yard, par-5 18th also play around Lake Presidential, making for exciting finishes to rounds.
