Lake Presidential Golf Club is one of Maryland's most popular public courses. It is a challenging championship layout that is player friendly enough to accommodate a wide range of skill levels. It stands out from run-of-the-mill municipal courses with exceptional conditions from the tees to the greens. The layout offers a diverse mix of holes that will have golfers using every club in their bag. There are some especially interesting par 3s that are visible but with enough hazards to make them a challenge. Houses border the front nine holes but they are absent on the back nine. The fairways on the last nine holes are densely lined with mature trees. The golf course finishes with an enjoyable par 5 that plays over a lake. It can be reached in two with a little skill and accuracy.

Course conditions so so

Played LP Monday 11/8. Perfect weather day. Staff were friendly and helpful. Driving range was stellar. Pace of play was excellent. Biggest complaint is that at least half of the holes are roped off so that no carts can enter. One might as well walk the course. Not golfer friendly in my opinion.

THE worst course in the entire DMV!!!!

The Marshall is clueless. Be ready for a 20 minute speech on the rules of the game only to not have a single one enforced. He forced me and my playing partner (5 handicap) to tee off from the whites to “ensure fast pace of play”. By hole 3….we were backed up 3 groups to a hole.

The one time we saw him out on the course, we let him know we have been waiting 10-15 minutes on the tee box every hole. He proceeded to assure us we were on time even though our round ended 6 hours total!

Kicker was the group that stomped in our ball on the fringe on 18 and then proceeded to try fighting us after the hole.

Greens and fairways were in terrible shape.

GO PLAY ANYWHERE ELSE! Save your money. This place STINKS!

(105$ for a round: I would have rather played East Potomac)

Pace

Haven’t played this course in a few years. Overall condition was just horrible for the $85 they get from you. Peppered greens and chewed up fairways. Dirt bunkers. They really have a lot of nerve charging that price but that’s Maryland for you. Best part of the day was the 5:45 it took to play. I’ll never be back.

Beautiful course, nice greens

First time playing here and I enjoyed it. The course has a great layout and is very challenging. A few fairways were recently aerated and some areas around a few greens were scraped for new sod, which was fine. It was nice to see all the maintenance going on and monies going into the upkeep and course improvements. Five stars for that for sure. Even the two men cutting grass were working hard and respectful when hitting your shots. It was a great course and a great ball striking day. Rolled in a few birdie putts too !

Poor Customer Service Ruins Everything

Imagine your party is just getting started its 9p and the staff comes to tell you to shut your party down now...you look in disbelief at how insensitive these people are. You ask why...she says you have to be out by 10p. Ok I know that but its not 10p. She says well we need one hour to clean. I ask, "My contract says 10p and there is ZERO clause indicating you need one hour to clean." Now I am just angry. As she proceeds to angry with my sister about shutting down the party with an attitude like we didn't pay every dollar to host our event there, I instantly regret selecting this place and paying $3200 for next to nothing. How dare you speak to your customers this way and how dare you approach us with such coldness. The people here are trash, the place is beautiful but not worth it if you will be treated with such disrespect. We cleaned up in 30 minutes and without kicking our guest out. They left when they were ready and we were out at 10p like we had planned to be. New management needed again or extreme customer service sensitivity training is needed because clearly these people do not know how to run an attractive business. I will not golf and spend a dime in this community ever again. Maybe she didn't like to see our people happy. She should do something about that and not antagonize the customers. What a trash person.
