Lake Presidential Golf Club
Lake Presidential Golf Club is a must-play golf course in the Mid-Atlantic region. The 18-hole, par-72, 7,230-yard layout meanders through heavily wooded terrain and rich, natural expanses. Generous landing zones and five sets of tees make for a balanced test for golfers of all skill levels and a great venue for family golf. Entertaining green complexes handsomely groomed playing surfaces, white-sand bunkers and picturesque streams round out the excitement. Among its remarkable holes is the 570-yard, par-5 No. 8 which requires an accurate tee shot through the trees to set up an approach to a narrow green 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 the 30-acre Lake Presidential for a memorable finish to any round.
