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.

We appreciate you sharing the handicaps within your group as we feel one of the greatest attributes of LMGC is that it caters to all skill levels.

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!

A little hard to find for the first-timer as it is part of the Hilton Hotel complex and the Lookout Mountain sign doesn't stand out well at the pace of the busy street on which the course is located. Otherwise, great place.

We've played here a few times and think the layout is just fantastic - due to all the rain earlier this year the course is in OUTSTANDING condition. Greens are firm and roll very true. Sand is very consistent hole to hole. The staff could not have been better. They were running a special for $10 they would change the spikes on your shoes - heck you can't buy a set of spikes for that.

Lookout Mountain GC is a fine course. Excellent course conditions and a very nice practice area. The staff is exceptionally friendly and great service fromthe time you first pull into the parking lot. My one major criticism is that the Friday afternoon I played here, the course was full, and on the challenging 10th Tee, as we made the tunr, there was no less than a 4 group wait. It seemed like a half hour wait. Then a 15 minute or so wait on the 11th. I grew somewhat frustrated after finishing a very pleasant 9 holes at a decent pace - well under 4:30. I don't believe we would have finished before sundown and simply headed for the clubhouse as a result. The course was aplogetic but could not accomodate a 9 hole rain check or credit for future play as I had booked and paid for the tee-time through GolfNow. While I realize I likely paid half price or so for the rond to begin with, I was surprised that there was nothing that the Pro Shop Staff could really do. My highlight of the day was making par on the first 5 holes with a couple of insane up and downs on my way to a usual 45 going out! The course really starts to defend itself after the first 5 holes and that is OK! If you are going to play hear - bring two sleeves, get out early and be patient!

Was lightly raining and guess that keeps people in Phoenix from playing, was a typical Seattle winter morning. So I had the course to myself, nice resort course. Played in about 3 hours, course was in excellent condition despite the rain. Would bring my buddies that don't play regularly back for a round.

I agree with previous reviewers that the course starts off easy and somewhat as a gentle walk in the park, but then it gets in your face and challenges you with some really beautiful rugged holes. The holes were well thought out by the architect in using the natural terrain. Pace was good, no delay. Beverage cart came by often. The views are spectacular .i would play it again.

First off bag attendants and the pro shop were great. The starter got us off the tee a few minutes early. The course starts off easy on the flattest part the becomes more difficult as you gain elevation. The number ten tee is way up there with the snack shop and some great views. There is a big drop off the 10th tee so there is no need to hit driver there and the fairway slopes considerably from left to right. There are some tricky holes placement wise from the tees so pick your spots wisely. The greens were in nice condition and the food was tasty at the Point in Thyme pub afterwards.

Course set up well for woman. In fact all tee boxes represent any skill level with good choices for a enjoyable round. Only minor complaint was putting green. Very playable just a bit thin on grass.

also my other minor beef with most courses is sand in bunkers and being a uniform amount and depth . With a course using bunkers as its protection it should maintain them so a player of any skill level should be able to get out.
