Reimagining The MARLTON Golf Country Club
Upper Marlboro, Maryland – The MARLTON Land Company, a pioneering real estate ownership group, today announced plans to transform The MARLTON, a historic golf course and country club just outside Washington DC, with a commitment to sustainability, community enrichment, and innovation.
The MARLTON Golf Country Club, with its rich legacy dating back to 1968, stands as an iconic 18-hole sanctuary in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, cherished by golf enthusiasts of every skill level. Revered for its challenging layout and views of “Lake Marlton,” the society is also home to The MARLTON Grill.
The project, in collaboration with the LAKE MARLTON Land Co., is expected to take five years to complete. This includes the new “Lake Marlton” homes, also known as West Marlton, which will be used for various purposes, including residential, commercial, and retail (mixed-use).
This venture will include the development of new amenities, such as:
1. Five-star dining experiences with farm-to-table concepts
2. State-of-the-art fitness center and spa
3. Expansive sports complex
4. Organic farm
5. Gourmet market and winery, featuring a signature rum bar
6. Technology-enhanced driving range
7. Pavilion/amphitheater for outdoor concerts and other events
The MARLTON project is committed to sustainable practices, including electric carts, solar power, drought-tolerant grasses, water-saving irrigation systems, waste reduction strategies, and other cutting-edge technologies.
“This is our way of giving back,” said Lindsay Guion, a representative of the two ownership groups. “We are committed to making a difference in the world, and we believe this could transform the Prince George’s County community. We want to create a mecca for entrepreneurship and innovation where people can live, work, and play. We also want to make sure that it is environmentally friendly.”
This transformation will create a walkable and bikeable community within a vibrant cultural district, featuring museums, theaters, and other cultural attractions designed to foster interaction and collaboration. “Our approach is grounded in design thinking, entrepreneurial spirit, and a relentless pursuit of innovation,” emphasized Guion.
Guion shared the vision of The MARLTON as a new Black Wall Street. “As architects of society, we want this to be a place where people from all backgrounds can come together and cultivate networks,” he said. “We want people to say, ‘Meet me at The MARLTON.’”
The MARLTON is set to become the ultimate lifestyle destination, offering a unique blend of opportunities. The concept of “The MARLTON After Dark” promises a vibrant nightlife scene, with late-night bars and restaurants that cater to those seeking entertainment well into the night.
This visionary project was inspired by the indomitable Mamba Mentality championed by Kobe Bryant, characterized by hard work, dedication, and unwavering determination. In line with this philosophy, Guion drew inspiration from the wisdom of Will Smith: “You don’t try to build a wall… You say, ‘I’m gonna lay this brick as perfectly as a brick can be laid,’ and you do that every single day, and soon you have a wall.”
“We are not trying to build something big and grand overnight,” Guion said. “We are laying the bricks one by one, making sure that each one is perfect. We believe that if we do this, we will eventually create something truly phenomenal.”
The MARLTON project is expected to generate numerous job opportunities during its construction phase, with the creation of permanent jobs upon its completion. The ownership groups are actively collaborating with local authorities, community stakeholders, and partners in the public and private sectors to secure funding and approvals for this transformative endeavor.
“We are excited to get started on this venture, and we are committed to making it a success,” shared Guion.
