The cart man warned me that a few of the holes in the back nine had just been aerated. Well, I have never seen so much sand on every green. Other than that - we had a good experience. I would come back. But not for a few months

He would play this course again.

First time playing Lake Presidential and I honestly left feeling a little confused about how much I enjoyed the round.

On one hand, the greens were extremely slow, bumpy, sandy ect. They had obviously been punched in the recent weeks which was fine. The problem was how inconsistent they were cut. Very tall and shaggy in some spots and thin and firm in others. The cups were very poorly cut for such a premium course. Made for a very frustrating round rolling putts.

The fairways were excellent shape, zero complaints there other than hoping people would do a better job repairing divots.

The other real issue outside of the greens was that the course was cart path only "due to the heat". It's obviously the courses discretion, and credit them for keeping the fairways in good shape but this made the round extremely unpleasant as most of the cart paths are elevated a good bit off of the fairways. On a hot day, treking up and down steep hills before and after every shot took alot of enjoyment out of playing the course.

The layout is fantastic. Very fair, but challenging. Course knowledge would be of great help.

I'd like to go back in the fall and play the course in its prime condition, which is what it looks like the grounds crew is already prepping for. My fear is, once it is in good condition it'll be priced well north of comparable courses in the MD/NOVA area. I'd try it again, but would have to make sure it wasn't cart path only before my arrival.

He would play this course again.

I played on a Wednesday afternoon and finished in 4 hours and change. The course was in pretty good condition but a few tee boxes were beat up. The layout is challenging and the greens are tough. Will definitely play again.

Course was an excellent shape, staff was friendly, but pace of play was a tad long finishing in 4.5 hours. I will definitely be back!

Vast improvement in conditions of course since I last played, but it was extremely wet and soggy (this was before the recent rains.) As a result, large divots littered the fairways which were not replaced. Also, lots of unrepaired ball marks on the greens. Getting better but need to encourage golfers to take better care of the course.
