The Drum Point Club was formed in 1983 by a group of residents who wished to conserve a unique 25 acre property from development. This private, non-profit, social club was organized exclusively for recreation, educational and outreach purposes, and the preservation of the nature and open space. The Club is at the very tip of Drum Point where the Patuxent River meets the Chesapeake Bay.
The Drum Point Club members can enjoy a private clubhouse, fishing pier, fire pit and expansive sandy beaches.
Drum Point was once part of a colonial land grant called Eltonhead Manor. It passed down through many generations and owners until it was finally sold to the Drum Point Corporation in 1948 which sought to develop the land into a resort community. The Chesapeake Ranch Club acquired the Drum Point Community in 1969. In 1983, the Drum Point Project, Inc. (DPPI) was created and purchased the infrastructure of the community from the Chesapeake Ranch Club. In 1986, DPPI sold all properties, one exception being the point property itself, which was retained and operated as a separate, privately-owned club.
