Lake Presidential Golf Club opened for play in 2008. The original layout was designed by Greg Norman and Jeff Potts, with significant alterations made to the final product.
Lake Presidential Golf Club is a walker-friendly layout draped across wooded terrain crossed with streams. The course is a championship caliber course offering a versatile, balanced test from five sets of tees ranging from 7,230 to 4,960 yards. Par for the course is 72.
Many consider the 570-yard 8th, which features a narrow tee shot and a green guarded by a bunker and the lake to be the signature hole. Both the rugged 225-yard, par-3 9th and the risk/reward 515-yard, par-5 18th tangle with the course's namesake lake.

Course conditions were not great, but area had a really tough winter. Some interesting holes, at least a couple of weird holes.

I really enjoyed the layout of the course. Usually there is one if not a couple of holes that I find annoying by being tricked up or unfair to play but I really enjoyed playing there Saturday. The round played in 4:45 so it was slower than I prefer but it was not ridiculously slow. A very enjoyable round played on a fair and challenging course.

Played here 8-15-12, and it is a wonderful golfing experience. A little pricey, considering course conditions, but not outrageously so. About conditions: weather this summer in the greater DC area has been VERY hot, without much rain, so courses in general are sufering, and LP is no different. A couple of greens had to be aerated to cope with the extreme temps, and several had rough spots in them. Grounds crews were patching some of the greens as we played. At least two fairways had sizable dead patches, and all of the ponds were down a foot or so, despite heavy rain in the previous 24 hours. Having said all of that, this is one excellent golf course. Varied terrain, tall trees, good use of the natural contours of the landscape. Lots of risk/reward shots available to the bold. Course winds through an upscale development, but the houses are never intrusive, and are not in most shot sight-lines. A fair number of bunkers, all in decent shape, and a number of tricky visuals, where the designer made the shot look togher than it really is. This is a course that makes you want to come back. Not walkable IMHO, as there are some significant distances between holes, and lots of verticality. Pace of play was very good: groups are on 10 minute intervals, and our foursome never had to wait, nor was the group behind ever pushing us. Good course management! Staff was excellent, and clubhouse facilities are everything expected. I highly recommend!
