Best golf resort in georgia

I played here with a friend and played the lake view and the mountain view. This review is the Mountain course. The course was great and customer service was great. The practice facilities where nice and I liked the clubhouse the restraunt was great. And the pace of play was great 3.5 hours. The course was awesome the fairways were very lush and the greens where rolling quick. The rough was very thick and your ball basically just disappeared. My favorite hole was etheir the 8th or the 14th hole. There where a lot of bridges on this course and many lakes, ponds, and streams. I couldn't believe how good the weather was on Thanksgiving 75 degrees. After your 36 holes on lake and mountain view then go to the restraunt up the road that serves Thanksgiving food.

Fantastic Greens and Fairways with challenging bunkers

Course is in immaculate condition. Greens and fairways are in fantastic shape. They could add some more water on holes as when we played it must have been in the mid to upper 90's, and lots of water was needed. Pro shop is fantastic, and staff were very accommodating.

Callaway Gardens Mountain View

Course layout is challenging due to length, some over hanging tress and well guarded greens. Quite a few deep bunkers surround each green and some of the greens were on the small side. Tees in good condition, fairways in good condition and spacious. Greens rolled true and very quick for down hillers. Other than driving it crooked all day my main issue was chipping. Areas around the greens have very tight lies and are damp resulting in either fat duffs or thin runners. Great set of par 3's, two short and two long. Good score can be shot. Can't miss course, would like to play the other side someday it appears linksish from street view driving inn.

Fun Resort Course

:00Booked a last minute Sunday morning tee time through GolfNow and had an excellent experience. I teed off at 9:00 and was done by noon. The course was interesting without being too difficult, the weather was great, and I enjoyed myself immensely. A great value!

Greens and fairways in great shape

Greens and fairways in great shape. Rough is very fair, however there are areas where the ball will sink out of sight. Most of the wooded areas are cleaned with minimum bad areas unless the ball is hit into an area where you would not expect to find it.

Top Notch Golf Course

Very similar to the Pinehurst courses. Enjoyable round of golf on a first class course. Lots of variety and great conditions for midsummer. I think I liked the Lake course a tad better but they were both great.

Glad it's back

Was hesitant to come back to Mountain View again. The last few times I have played the greens on the back 9 have been terrible. Winter kill or just plain rot; they were in bad shape for awhile. Got a great deal on the round so decided it was worth the risk. Greens were fine all the way around. Callaway course is always well kept so the sub-par greens were a surprise, the fact that is seemed to last a year was also a surprise. Not to fear now, great to see this classic course back to its fighting weight.

After great difficulty logging in, we are late to say "Thanks!" for the post. We did have some challenges - mostly due to crazy weather - but our team has done a great job and really worked hard on the course. We hope you are in the area and able to play again soon.

PGA quality at Public prices

The course was fantastic and fabulous shape. The driving range was exceptional and will set away from the course for privacy. From the first tee to the 18th the pace of play was about an hour less than expected four hours. It was exciting to play a course that the pros have played on for the Buick invitational in the past. Highly recommended

Great course

We had a blast playing the course. The only problem we had was using the golf now app. The front and back 9 were reversed in the app from what they are at the course. But I will definitely be going back to this course another day for another round.

Beautiful but challenging course

The longer length and the many traps of this course would attract low handicapped golfers who enjoy challenges Beautifully maintained greens and fairways make it enjoyable for any golfer. We also played the Lakes course which was also beautiful and well maintained but a little more gentle and friendly to seniors and more average golfers
