Top-notch public
golf courses in the
Washington D.C. area
are about as rare as
politicians who have
nothing to hide, but
Lake Presidential Golf Club represents
change we can all believe in.

Located 20 miles southeast of the
White House and equidistant from
D.C. and Annapolis, the course is a
dream for Beltway golfers starved of
quality options: a spirited design with
an affordable price tag.

Lake
Presidential is a creation of Landmark
Land Company, the developers who
gave us Kiawah Island, PGA West
and La Quinta, among others.

Early returns give the layout high
marks for beauty and shotmaking
demands. The walker-friendly layout
is draped across wooded terrain
streaked with streams, and both the
rugged 225-yard, par-3 9th and the
risk/reward 515-yard, par-5 18th
tangle with the course’s namesake
lake.

Most votes for “best hole” will go
to the 570-yard 8th, which features a
narrow tee shot and a green guarded
by a bunker and the lake. This may be
the only Presidential newcomer of ’08
that everyone agrees on.
