I love the design of this course, as the areas around the greens feature chipping swales and other features to make you think. If you keep it in the fairway, you have options, and can bump and run. On a recent Monday, the pace was abysmal...more than 5 hours.

Wow this is a great course. There are a lot of elevation changes and scenic water hazards. Not exactly an easy course to play unless you are familiar with it. Greens are fast, fairways in great condition. Stay out of the rough because it is not for the weak. Price is a bit high, but well worth it to play once or twice for the experience.

Great track and in good shape. Cart died on #3 and after speaking to someone in the pro shop I was told, "we're out of carts right now, we'll see what we can scrounge up; they've been given to all the parents who are following their kids in the junior tournament." A cart did come on the next hole, but after pushing it up the hill, we were expecting some sort of apology. We were just told to "switch it at the turn, it might not make it another 15 holes." I've never paid full price for a round there and never will. Still trying to figure out if the guys in the pro shop are discourteous to those who find deals online or are that way with everyone.

$100 dollar rounds should have unreal conditions and customer service. Lacked a little of both.

Played Lake Presidential again for $99 on a weekday. I am not sure where some of the players that reviewed the course play, but Lake Pres does not compare to the premium courses around DC area such as Raspberry Falls, Stonewall, Laurel Hills, and Westfield. I can play these courses for less but with much better greens and layout. Lake Pres has the worse finishing holes 9th and 18th. Course lacks definition and greens are a real disappointment. Greens are so slow, we need to layup on a 10 foot putt (sarcasm). If I’m paying premium fees, I expect premium greens not some shag carpet to putt on.
I only play courses with fast green and the premium courses I mentioned above are my regular courses. If given the choice to play at Lake Pres for $45, I’ll pass.
Over all, course is over rated and overpriced. Food was pretty good.

Have played it twice, and I'll never go back. $90 for a five and a half hour round late on a Saturday, never saw a marshal. Greens were so slow my game will be screwed up for a week. Arrived an hour early; no carts. Had to schlep my bag to the range and they gave me a dixie cup with about ten balls in it. Thanks a lot. Five minutes before my tee time, still no carts. Had to schlep the bags to the 1st tee. Fifteen minutes AFTER our tee time, the starter says "go ahead." We point out the obvious, no cart. So after lots of radioing back and forth, a cart finally appears. Then we're told "cart path only." That was never mentioned in the pro shop when they were gladly taking my $90. Oh, and when I asked if there was a military discount, the pro says "only monday thru thursday." Thanks buddy, maybe the military should only protect you on weekdays? The course itself is like two completely different nines, and the holes themselves are just annoying. Rough is always thick and wet. I worked the US Open this week, and the rough at Congressional wasn't as bad as LP. What are they trying to prove? Save yourself the effort of driving here and go play Blue Mash or Whiskey Creek or Swan Point.

great course. i would put up the greens against any public course in md or va (dc area)...pace of play was horrendous. 5.5 hours with no rangers. terrible.

Lake Presidential is definitely one of the best public golf courses in the DC metro area. It is a good design with rolling hills, changes in elevation, and strategically placed hazards. With four sets of tee boxes, this course is manageable for all skill levels and demanding for the best of golfers.
Course conditions were in pristine shape, well manicured from tee to green. Greens were slightly fast, but rolled very true all day. The staff was friendly and helpful. While the normal rates are pretty high, we were able to play on a discounted rate during the week.
We will definitely be back to play here again!

This course is beautiful. It is well maintained. There are a lot of elevation changes and strategy definately comes into play. I would play this course a ton if it wasn't
$73 during twilight hours. The club house is very nice as well.

hey guys! this course is messed up! the topography is great, but the course is beat to smithereens! The lack of course enforcement is killing this track. The players don't use sand in divots, don't repair ballmarks, and the staff double cut greens in may then had two inches of rain followed by 90 degree heat, the greens as a result are in bad shape. the course is difficult and in these conditions with no true rolls on the greens- save your money and play elsewhere! We asked for a refund on some of the 100 dollar round-because we didn't know the conditions- they flat out refused and said, "hope to see you again" don't think so!
