Lake Presidential Golf Club
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.

Have to play
Beautiful course, recommend to you if you are in the area.
Pace of play miserable
One of the best course layouts in Maryland. A true championship style course. Would have been nice to play the whole course but we played 12 holes in 4 hours and it got dark. The staff did not care to push along pace of play at all
The course was excellent and the weather for December was perfect. The course/staff needs to follow county pandemic rules. Played multiple times during pandemic. The course tries to force you to share carts during pandemic. They claim they don't have carts until you pay a fee for a separate cart then like magic they find carts. Money grab. Other courses are following safety protocols by not forcing patrons to share carts.
Hard course for mid to high handicap
I've played this course a few times. Seems like everytime I play, the course is wet. It had rained a few days ago and the course was still very wet. VERY. Cart Paths Only can make the pace of play much longer. Make sure you play "Cart Path Golf" The Staff was friendly. The course is challenging. I will play again.
Excellent service and beautiful course
What a change since the last time I played here several years ago. The course is in the perfect condition and very beautiful. The staff in the pro shop, the starter and just everybody managing the course are the most pleasant and helpful. I was totally blown away by their joyful spirit and kindness.
It took close to 5 hours to finish the round. So the pace was a tad slower than I would like.
Perfect layout with excellent conditions
The course conditions was near perfect and I didn't lot of leaves on the fairways on Mid-Nov. The layout was very challenging with some winds. Staffs was very friendly. Unfortunately it was a cart path only.. it took about 5 hours to play.
Major pace of play issue
The starter allowed 2 groups to start play on hole 1 when the course had everyone starting their round on hole10. This caused such a bad stoppage in play on the back nine that we couldn't finish our round. (Only finished 15 holes). Very disappointed because it could have been avoided if the starter reminded groups 10 was the starting hole and/or they removed the groups who started on the wrong hole. Course staff should have offered a gift card or some compensation for their mistake.
A beautiful Target course
I'm an average golfer and found this course very challenging. Many of the tee shots require you to really hit your target area in the fairway ( I didn't) or you'll be working to get a bogey. The rough was, well, rough even when you only missed the fairway by 3 yards. Course is in beautiful condition. Staff is helpful and friendly.
