5 1/2 hour round. Marshall was sitting under a tree eating his lunch instead of helping move slow golfers along. Terrible attitude when I suggested he push them to play ready golf.

On the plus side, greens were very nice, course was OK, to pristine by any means, and it didn't rain on us.

We would like to again apologize for the pace of play challenges you experienced during your round. Pace of play is always of the utmost importance to us and there is no excuse that we missed the mark this day.

In regards to your reference of our course marshal, we can assure you that this individual is one of our most seasoned team members and he was doing everything in his power to help move golfers along. Aside from physically removing golfers from the course, he used every technique possible to assist with the pace of the slower players. When you saw him "sitting under a tree eating his lunch", you saw a dedicated employee that would rather eat on the move and stay out on the golf course to assist our guests rather than vacating the course for his lunch break.

We would again like to offer you a rain check for a return visit as an apology for the pace of play. While we cannot change your experience that day, we certainly hope to make it right and provide the type of experience so many are accustomed to here at Lookout Mountain Golf Club. Please do not hesitate to contact the management team here at LMGC to further discuss your experience.

It's challenging to play from the Back Pointe, add another 700 yards to my game. I usually play from the 'White' or Middle Pointe at Lookout Mountain, but my playing partner plays from the Back Pointe, so I joined him, finished with a 92, not too bad for me. My wife played from the Forward Pointe, despite the challenge, she still enjoy herself.

The course was in good shape and the greens were consistently good. Excluding pace of play, no complaints. However, having to wait on every shot detracted from all that was good. Five hours to play this course is not good. The course Ranger apologized but seemed to have no solution. When you promote 4 hours, 18 minutes as the expected pace of play you should monitor pace so as to be reasonably close to the stated expectation.

I was in town for a conference so I booked a time for two of us on golf now. 1 hour later it looked like we may have a hard time making it on time, so I called golf now to cancel. But I as the tee sheet was pretty open we were going to try and make it a little later, and just pay whatever the rate was.

Since it was inside the the 24 hour window they had to call the club to make sure there wouldn't be a no-show fee of the entire greens fee.

They came back and said if I didn't show, they were charging me anyway.

Now, I am a business guy, so I fully understand the need to charge for a no show if it is a very popular course or the tee sheet is packed. In that case I literally cost them the ability to sell that tee time to someone else and I should pay for it. This was clearly not the case. It was a wide open tee sheet and they were just trying to hose me because they could.

We moved a few meetings and hurried out there for our round. It was a decent little layout, but I will make sure to not give any more of my money to this course, EVER, just on principle.

We would like to sincerely apologize for the challenges you experienced and the mishandling of your situation. With 3rd party tee times such as the one you booked through GolfNow, all communication is handled by that 3rd party and there is no direct communication between the golf course and the guest. Had the tee time been booked directly with us, we can assure you there would have been no challenges pushing your tee time back. We truly appreciate your comments and feedback. Please know that we will utilize your review as a teaching opportunity for our staff and our 3rd party partners. We hope you will visit us again in the future and encourage you to call us directly the next time you're in the Phoenix area.

The first hole is forgiving, and the course gets better as you play on. Challenging but nothing over the top. Greens weren't in the greatest shape, but overall a great place to play. We got out at 9 am and had a great pace of play. Nice staff, good food in the restaurant after. It was a little spread out, so I wouldn't walk this one, but all in all worth playing.

Really enjoyed the views from this course. Pace of play was good - just over 4 hours. We only waited for the group ahead of us on a couple of holes. Course was in in good shape, greens were fast and true. Only frustration was that we didn't know the course so on a couple of holes we chose the wrong clubs. The free yardage guide provides is helpful, but not a perfect solution to this. Would enjoy playing again now that we have some course knowledge.

Played here twice with 3 buddies while in town for spring training. This is the only course we played while in Phoenix so I can't compare it to others in the area...

The course was in pristine condition and overall layout was challenging, yet enjoyable (groups HC ranged from 5-25). Our group traveled from Seattle, and our only gripe (if you can call it that) was with how fast and difficult the greens were. DO NOT Leave yourself with downhill puts.

We paid $90 pp with a hot deal and that seemed more than fair for this this course. The range and practice greens were in great shape and were included in the cost.

Can't go wrong playing this course. Especially for first timers. Enjoy!

HIghly enjoyable course. Four of us played with handicaps of 5, 12, 19, and 29, and we all truly enjoyed ourselves. Course in excellent shape. Only one or two greens off a bit. Some truly memorable holes. Lots of elevations changes. Picturesque area, well designed holes, good conditions, brisk pace of play. All good and a course we'd gladly play again.

My wife and I have been traveling from Toronto to the Phoenix area for a number of years now. We generally play a variety of courses during our stay in the valley with prices ranging from $50 up to $200. Lookout Mountain is the one course we make a point of playing every year.

The course offers a variety of tee boxes and has something for all levels of golfer. Over the years, housing has encroached somewhat however many vistas on the course are still spectacular.

The course gets a lot of play yet it is always in good shape.

Staff at the course are wonderful from the bag drop through the pro shop and out to the marshals on the course. We always get a warm welcome as well as several thank-you's throughout our round. Lookout Mountain remains on our must play list!
