Lake Presidential is a great track – 09/30/2009

Some associates came to town and I could think of no better place to take them than Lake Presidential and show them one of the top courses in our area. We arrived to a friendly greeting by the bag attendant and ventured out to the range to warm up. I really was looking forward to playing the course as it had been several months since my last visit and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. It is obvious that the folks running LP are dedicated to continuing to improve this already-great facility and ensure that players of all levels can enjoy a round of golf. That being said, there are also some improvements which will make it more player friendly (new tee box on #1) and some other not-so-obvious changes (i.e. trees removed from a few spots) which will only add to the all players’ enjoyment. I’ve said it before and will mention it again, the greens on this course are definitely something to behold. On this day they weren’t super fast but they were amazingly smooth and manicured. While Lake Presidential is certainly building a reputation for excellent greens, you can not discount the carpet-like quality of the fairways too! I put the fairways in my top category of “pristine”. We played from the blue tees and at 6400+ yards; we used just about every club in the bag and were faced with many challenging and scenic shots. #16 comes to mind, a beautiful downhill par 3 playing about 190 – the fact that I hit a crisp 4 iron to about 15 feet certainly made it memorable to me! Also, take a look across the lake on #18, a par 5, which is reachable in 2 (trust me) – hit a big drive and then enjoy the scenic drive back around the lake. After you close your round with a nice birdie, make sure to head to the clubhouse for some food, beverage and friendly service. The clubhouse IS 1st class and they really make you feel at home there. I can’t say enough nice things about Lake Presidential – a 1st rate facility all around – ask for Nathan when you visit and tell them Lefty from sent you! Lefty (86)
