Callaway Gardens’ golf pedigree stretches more than six decades, all the way back to 1949, when architect J.B. McGovern, with considerable input from Cason Callaway designed the first nine holes of the Lake View Course. In 1951, Lake View perfectly captured the vision that “playing golf should be a pleasant experience in beautiful surroundings.” Callaway Gardens host Junior Tournaments as well as both amateur and professional. The Mountain View Course is a challenging, but playable layout that will test your strategic and shot making abilities, just as it did for PGA Tour pros when it hosted the Buick Challenge from 1991 to 2002.
