Course conditions

Had played this course yrs ago and it was immaculate. Course now in terrible shape. Fairways in terrible condition, very little grass. Greens fair. Appearance around clubhouse and course really bad. Was just shocked. They did have a bad storm few weeks ago but most of this had nothing to do with that. Course has just been let go. Not kept up well at all

Always enjoyed this course with a nice lay out and beautiful. However the last couple times here, and especially today, the greens are in very poor condition.

No water coolers, no drink cart service.

This was my third year playing the Lake View. A fun course that presents less of a challenge than the Mountain View, but still has some fun and challenging holes. The are had received a ton of rain before we arrived, so the course was cart path only. The fairways and tee boxes were wet, but not so much that it affected play. Greens were firm and rolled true. My one big complain is that there were ZERO water coolers on the course, and we never saw a drink cart. $60+ dollars was a little steep to not offer any water at all on the course.

Average at best

I just wasn’t very impressed with this course. Granted, they had a lot of rain recently and it was cart path only, but I just didn’t feel like the course was in great shape. Greens were really slow. And the layout was nothing special. It probably didn’t help my experience that we were out there as a twosome and got placed behind a fivesome (that made us wait until the 7th hole to play through) then another foursome with two young children that didn’t let us play through, so we ended up skipping a hole and going around. Pretty sure those were the only 3 groups on the course, too.

Overall, it was just OK. I probably won’t be back. It’s probably not usually as bad as it was for me today, though.

Nice Greens

The course was in the best shape it’s been all year. I play at Callaway every Friday so I saw a big difference in a week with us finally getting some rain. The greens were immaculant and were holding shots. My only complaint has been the water around the course for the past month has not had any ice and so it’s like drinking from the tap. I will probably be there this coming week to play again. I think you will enjoy your experience of playing Lakeview.

Callaway Lake

This is an amazing course after playing in Atlanta area for so long. There was grass in the fairways which were not impacted clay and the greens were awesome. This is a very nice and fair course. Most of the holes are fairly short and accessible in regulation if you play out of the fairways. If you;'re not in the fairway, you will get punished as there is plenty of forest and under brush. You must be precise off the tee and the scenery is outstanding. I could not have found a better value for this type course and will definitely play again. Worth the drive from Atlanta.

Awesome Course.

Great course that's always a pleasure to play. Very crowded on Saturdays from mid-morning to early afternoon so pace of play is very slow. Other than that, this is an awesome course.

Awesome Course Beautiful Greens

I play this course almost weekly and can say it's one of the best maintained courses around this area. I teed off early
and never slowed down or had to wait on anyone. Great resort to stay for the weekend. Bring the wife and pamper her with a massage while you play golf and everyone's happy!

Challenging But Good

Pay attention to your ball's landing position especially in the first cut of rough... can be hard to find until you are right on top of it!
