Billy Casper Golf Selected To Manage Lake Presidential Golf Club In Upper Marlboro, MD
(VIENNA, VA) - Billy Casper Golf (BCG) - the largest owner-operator of golf courses, country clubs and resorts in the U.S. - has been selected to manage Lake Presidential Golf Club (Upper Marlboro, MD) which ranks No. 3 on Golfweek's 2014 "Best Courses You Can Play" state-by-state list.
Headquartered in nearby Northern Virginia, BCG will turnkey all facets of the public-access Lake Presidential Golf Club operation, including course and property maintenance, staffing and training, clubhouse activities, merchandising, golf instruction, marketing and public relations, special events and financial management.
"Billy Casper Golf is honored to manage the award-winning Lake Presidential Golf Club," says Peter Hill, Chairman and CEO of BCG. "We are bringing several new programs to the club to build on its stellar reputation and cement it as a 'must play' for Mid-Atlantic golfers."
"Lake Presidential is blessed with a fantastic piece of property a stone's throw from the world's most powerful city," says Bill Anthony of Ryko Development, owner of Lake Presidential. "Golfers relish the topography and wild areas which are unrivaled regionally."
Named a "Top 10 New Course in the United States" by GOLF Magazine upon opening in 2008, Lake Presidential is less than 45 minutes east of Washington, DC and one hour south of Baltimore. Golf Channel calls the course "the best kept secret in DC golf."
Developed by Landmark Land Company, the 18-hole, par-72, 7,230-yard layout winds its way through wooded terrain and rich, natural expanses. Landing zones are generous off the tee and green complexes require precise approach shots, making Lake Presidential a balanced test for golfers of all skill levels. Five sets of tees, handsomely groomed playing surfaces, white-sand bunkers and picturesque streams round out the excitement.
At 570 yards, the par-5 eighth hole is as demanding as it is beautiful. An accurate tee shot through trees sets 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 Lake Presidential for memorable finishes to rounds.
Complementing the golf course is "The Institute," Lake Presidential's world-class, indoor-outdoor training facility. Home to the TaylorMade Performance Lab - one of only 12 in the world - PGA professionals use the MATT (Motion Analysis Technology by TaylorMade) System for high-speed cameras and motion-capture technology that produces three-dimensional images of golfers' swings. A short-game practice area features a bunker, large putting green and spacious, all-grass driving range.
The stately, 11,000 square-foot clubhouse includes a fully-stocked pro shop with the latest in equipment and apparel from top brands. With a banquet hall accommodating 150 guests, Lake Presidential is a popular venue for corporate meetings, weddings and other catered functions.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the grill offers indoor-outdoor dining and majestic panoramic views of the 30-acre Lake Presidential. A complete menu of classic, American favorites, fully stocked bar and friendly wait staff make it a perfect spot for pre- or post-round meals with friends and family.
