Enjoyed course and condition

Only issue was, we got there with plenty of time to warm up, and purchased balls in the clubhouse only to find that they didn’t have any. I purchased 3 bags, one for each of us only to find they didn’t have any. The attendant at the cart barn offered to get balls for us and delivered a tube to each of us that consisted of 22 balls each. About 20 balls short of a bag, and so late that we couldn’t even hit them all before our tee time. Kinda frustrating when the cost for 3 players was $196.00. All they had to say was I can’t sell you balls right now, and we would have chipped and putted.

Challenging and Fun Course

Mountain View is a very good course that plays long with lots of challenges. It is a great and challenging course (has hosted many PGA tour stops during the 1990s) that has seen better days.
The greens were very playable but not great. The greens were a little shaggy and slow, due to the rain over the past few days. Most greens are very small, elevated and heavily bunkered which presents a challenge. Most of the greenside bunkers are large, very deep, and challenging. The fairways were lush and firm but with a few bare spots. Bunkers were crusty and had not been raked recently due to the rain and weather the past few days. Mountain View is a good, challenging course but not in the best condition vs. when I played last year.
The staff, as always, was very friendly. Do yourself a favor and go to Callaway Gardens for the weekend and play both courses. You will enjoy them both Mountain View course is longer and more difficult than Lake View course.

Day after lots of rain &. 2 days after maintenance closure

Actually was quite well. Wish the sand traps were a bit dryer ..: fix for that is to stay out of them. Very surprised we felt like we were the only ones there:. Two days prior i put in a request at the proshop & bag drop to have our cart decorated for our 30th anniversary. Unfortunately that was not followed through on… but i later discovered a line to call at CG called CID (consider it done) that I should have used.. noted for next time.

All in all I've played here maybe 5 times and found it to be top shelf only beat by Jekyll Island’s and tied with Barnsley Gardens in Kingston GA.

Tough Course

Played Mountain View and Lake View on a buddies trip. Mountain View was more difficult and not in as good condition as Lake View. MV is a good course that plays long - most greens are elevated and heavily bunkered.

The greens were playable but not great. Fairways were very firm with some bare spots. Bunkers were crusty and had not been raked recently. MV is a good course but not in the best condition when we played.

Another good course that is worth the drive from Atlanta

I played and reviewed the Lave View course last month and I came back to play the Mountain View course. It is a longer and tougher course than Lake View. Most of the greens are "turtle" greens, raised and surrounded by bunkers. On the overhead view of the course on my app, I counted 59 bunkers!! The PGA Buick Challenge was played here for 12 years through the early 2000's. Most of the fairways are straightforward with one or two dog legs but a few have blind landing areas. Some of the fairways are heavily sloped so experience and a second or third round will probably show better scores. The greens were very firm and fast. The staff was very friendly. Do yourself a favor and go to Callaway Gardens for the weekend and play both courses. You will enjoy them both.

Needs TLC

This is a great course that has seen better days. Good interesting layout. But conditions were more muni level. There had been a lot of rain that impacted fairways and bunkers, but that aside, the tee boxes and greens and signage were also spotty from lack of care. Hope Callaway will put some $ and care into maintenance this summer when the rain subsides.

Impressive

Wow this is a nice track from top to bottom. Very fair and interesting layout with rolling hills and a few water holes.
Worth the drive and every penny for range balls, green fees, and food. It is refreshing to see that someone still knows how to run a golf course.
I will be back to play the lake course real soon.
