Played both Mountain View and Lake View and they were in excellent condition.
Cart Path Only
Course was very wet due to heavy rainfall the day before our round. Greens were slow due to dampness but in condition. Overall the course was in very good condition. Lakeview Bermuda rough was cut to about 3 inches. If you miss the fairway, it’s a tough out and on occasion a lost ball. I always enjoy playing here as the staff is always friendly. We were unfortunate with the prior day’s weather.
fourth of July weekend
Played in 4 hrs on a holiday weekend! Which is great the layout is a good challenge with quality shots being rewarded and punished for being off line. Definitely I step down from the mountain view course so perfect for a mid to high handicaper.
Terrible Callaway Garden's golf experience
Lost 2 balls in fairway as fairways are unkept. Greens were recently punched but I was not informed of that when making a tee time. Very limited selection at concession and had to eat outside in the heat, all the while next to the big window lookng into the air conditioned dining room, filled with tables and chair's.
Beautiful surroundings and the BEST our US Flag waving high with pride directly at beginning of the one fairway. Great lay-out and good challenge with mist greens elevated. Very friendly staff Enjoyed playing here
Overall a fun day out on the course for my family. We played Mountain View on Friday and Lakebiew on Monday. It is obvious they put more time and effort on Mountain View based on course conditions.
Lake view fairways needed to be mowed and the rough was definitely rough. Both courses had sanded greens which was disappointing.
It had been a long time since I played the course and it appears the overall course has taken a hit during the pandemic.
I’d play again
Was at Callaway for my 40th birthday and my wife booked a tee time here since the Mountain View course had an event going on. The layout of this course is very forgiving and perfect for any skill level. A few of the tee boxes could use some love, but aside from that, the course is in good shape. Staff was friendly. They’ll explain whatever you need to know if you’re a first timer.
I’d recommend this course to anyone looking for a golf getaway and fun times at Callaway.
Play here several times a year almost weekly. This is the first time that most of the flags were cut very close to edge of green which increased challenge of the course. I always enjoy playing Lakeview
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.
Played Lake View on a buddies trip with 7 friends. We enjoyed 2 rounds on the course. The greens were excellent. Fairways were very firm and tight because the grass was just beginning to grow.
The bunkers were not in great condition but playable. We purchased a golf package that included 2 nights in a 4 bedroom villa. We all enjoyed the trip.
