Second time we've played Outlook Mt. We had forgotten how beautiful the course is. Conditions were excellent and the greens were very quick but ran true. Staff were super friendly as well. Got paired up with a very nice couple from Canada and had a wonderful time. Make sure you play the proper tees as the course has some blind spots which can prove very punishing if you're playing the wrong tees.

I played this as a hot deal and what a wonderful experience for the price. Great practice facility, friendly staff, and no one on the course. Granted it was mid week early October however, we felt like it was our course for the day. Conditions were as expected considering the grass has almost grown back to normal conditions (appears they've done their regular maintenance, punching, etc). I would play here again, even at a higher cost.

course in general great shape..

the same cannot be said for the greens.

While they were moderately fast, they were tufted and extremely bumpy.

could not put at a slow pace the ball would jump off line

Give it another month and the greens should be ready

golf8dhcp,

Thank you for taking the time to review Lookout Mountain Golf Club! We appreciate the feedback about the course conditions. The higher than normal temperatures we are experiencing currently put a little stress on the course, especially the greens. You are right, in a month, the course will be better than perfect!

We look forward to your future visits!

I have played this course over a dozen times now and still find it an interesting course to play. The course is not long even from the tips and most intermediate players would have no problem playing from the tips. If you need to bomb drives out beyond 275, then you may find this course frustrating. There are only a few holes that would put driver in play in that case. The fairways have wide landing areas to keep the ball in play and are always well maintained and fully grown out. The fun comes from all the elevation changes that you encounter as you navigate through this course. Just a darn nice track.

dhume419,

Thank you for taking the time to review Lookout Mountain Golf Club! Although only 6515 yards from the back tees, the challenge of elevation change and green undulation make LMGC a real test for the better player, while the wide fairways help even the most novice players.

We look forward to your future visits!

Absolutely beautiful course that cuts up and through the mountains with stunning views! We played with a couple on vacation from Oregon that loved the course as well. Luckily I had played this course a couple weeks before with a guy that had that knew the course and was able to map out some of the holes that are hard to see down and around the mountain. GPS is a must upgrade. ( the ones that tell where the other carts are in the course) I will definitely be back and recommend this course to all

Really love this course, starts out "meh' then at 7 really becomes a breath taking track. Tons of elevation change, don't even think of walking this course.

Course was in decent shape for the end of summer, a little burnt here and there but nothing to impact play. Greens were a touch thin and sandy but rolling fine.

Coming from the east valley we were paired up with a twosome from the far end of the west valley...we both thought it was well worth the drive.

Nothing bad to say about the course or the employees, first rate all the way, but the pace of play was horrible. Every hole we would get to the tee box with the group in front of us still waiting to tee off. It's fine if it's 80 degrees, but when it's 108 an almost 5hr round is not going to work for me.....

By far the best greens I have played in the valley this summer. The layout is pretty basic for holes 1-6 and then the course gets very fun and challenging. The greens were phenomenal. True roll and lie with every contour. The staff here is also the most friendly I have come into contact with. I was lucky enough to partner with one of the starters because it was a slow day. He knew the course inside and out and made it that much more fun. I would highly recommend this course. Play from the blues and get the best views!
