Great course, still some issues with the greens

Mountain View is a great course. The staff is very friendly and the inside restaurant is great. The only negative is that a few of the greens still have some issues with Poana grass, especially the 18th green. It's something they've been fighting for over a year now. The good news is that they cut the greens short and roll them, so they are still very quick. And with the exception of the 18th green (which is very bumpy because of the Poana), the rest of the greens roll smoothly. Other than that, the fairways and rough are in great shape for this time of year, as are the bunkers.

Former PGA course

It’s getting back now that it’s been bought and money is being put in. Bryan in the pro shop is the nicest guy there is. A real test as all the greens are surrounded by sand traps. Green size and undulations will also test your game.

Beautiful Day at Callaway Gardens

The course is in great shape. The rough is dryer than the summer months so drives off of the fairway will not penalize you as much. Lots of players on the course so the pace of play was slower than usual.

Fun Course

Have had friends play at Callaway but this was the 1st time I was able to. Played with a friend I hadn't seen in several years. We played tees at about 6500 yrds which is a little long for us and added to the challenge. Good variety of holes. Didn't feel like you were playing the same hole over again. Thought the greens were on the small side. The greens are still recovering from being aerated and could be bumpy in places. Would play again.

Beautiful setting

Calloway golf courses have great potential. Mountain course today was a 4 of 5. Positives- fairways were in great shape. Roughs were very tough - difficult at times to find my ball. Pace of play was great. New carts. Pro shop has new merchandise. Only negative was a couple of greens need work.
Calloway Gardens and golf courses are a great place to visit and play golf. Courses have improving the past couple of years.

Played behind a sixsome, rough needs to be cut

Nice course in great shape. Played alone and lost several balls right by the green in the thick Bermuda rough. Rough should be cut some if you can’t find balls 2 feet from the green. Pace was good until I got behind a sixsome who ignored I was there. Quit after 11 holes.

Staff should be ashamed

Weeds on tee boxes, burnt up greens, loose every ball in the rough. Not a fun course the way the staff has let the course go. They should be ashamed to charge $90 to play the course in the condition it currently is in. I will not return.

If you want US Open conditions with ANY shot off the fairway by inch’s in which you will never find your ball this is your track… absurd- we are low double digit players and could not find shots that weren’t in fairway or on green complex … no fun- cut the grass

Disappointing

The course was pretty. Great layout, fairways and rough were great. Bunkers and greens were ATROCIOUS. The greens were some of the worst greens I have ever played on. They were not well maintained at all… looks like someone took a shovel tip and just annihilated the greens and you can tell they haven’t been rolled in forever. The course was worth the $80, but the greens were worth about $20. If you’re looking for the experience then this course is one to mark off the bucket list. If you just want to play a round of golf then I’d definitely go elsewhere, cause you will just leave frustrated. I will probably come back to play the other course in hopes that it is better, but it’s definitely not a course I’m gonna bring a group of friends to for a out of town golf trip.

Great layout poor conditions

Was excited to play had heard great things! But wow, greens were a huge disappointment! Lots of unknown grass in the greens, very bumpy, not sure when they had been cut or top dressed. Any sand on the greens would have helped for sure. Played on a hot deal for $59.00 but truly only worth $30-40 at this point. Sorry, just being honest, course is 3-4 weeks away from being worthy of 60.00+ to play.

Driving Range

If you already struggle with putting you might have a chance here. The greens are so bad that a miss read and a miss hit could go in. The course conditions are slightly better than Durham Lakes. Forget the green fees it wasn't worth the gas money spent to play. A morning at the driving range would have been more enjoyable.

Nice old course

Layout is good and pretty. Too much Poa in the greens which made iputting difficult. A little more on course maintenance would be nice.

Course Overwhelmed

So the course is nice. The greens need some major love. We played on a Saturday not knowing that the Big East Women’s Tournament was playing with the Men doing a practice run. And another large group playing.
So they were short on carts.. There was no water on the course , temps in the mid 80’s ( and coolers are not allowed). And no beverage cart.
The bathroom on the back 9 was out of order. The turnaround was overwhelmed. And when our partners cart died on the 7th hole no one in the pro shop answered the phone.
So if you play on a Monday - Wednesday you are probably good.
