Lookout Mountain Golf Club, with its physical location in Georgia, is a member of the Tennessee Golf Association, PGA, and the Chattanooga District Golf Association. As an active Club with a great Seth Raynor course, it has hosted many Championships over the years. The Lookout Mountain Golf Club, originally the Fairyland Golf Club, was part of Garnet Carter’s dream for an exclusive resort colony called “Fairyland.” Unfortunately, a combination of bad events (rainstorms, Raynor's death etc.) ensured that the potential of this was never realized. Architect Brian Silva was called in 1997 to finish Raynor's work and to refurbish the course, with an amazing result.

This is the only mountain course designed by Seth Raynor and sadly he never lived to see it to completion. The standard Raynor templates are all here at Lookout. The Redan, the Biarritz, The Alps, Road Hole, Long, and Short, all presented in a mountain setting and he pulled it off well. This is one of the most fun courses you will play , every hole offers superb views and challenges. Raynor was an engineer first and knew about optics and geometry, and he plays with your head throughout the round. Down the middle is seldom an optimum short, and you had better be thinking hard about where you want to land, as the greens are beyond slick and the bunkers are among the most penal in all of golf. Even though this is a course bulit on a mountain, there are only several holes that have extreme elevation changes, and there are a few parts of the course where you could swear you are playing a link club in the UK, in fact some have referred to Lookout Mountain as a links course in the mountains. It is one the most amazing settings in golf. THe courses takes an incredible amount of pride in their conditioning, and the fairways are usually like silk. The greens are among the most diffiuclt to read in all of golf, you will scratch your with some of the breaks. One of the few courses left to have bent greens, so many in the south have gone to Bermuda. The staff goes out of their way to make all guests feel welcome. The head pro Adam Campbell is in my opinion one of the most welcoming and enthusiastic in the business. You can tell that Mr. Campbell and his staff love this course and have great respect for the history that preceded it. The clubhouse is modest, but very functional, the lunches are great, and there are numerous special events held for the members and their families. There are very few authentic Raynor courses left , and Lookout Mountain will surely give you a taste of the design genius of this great architect. It is beyond fun, you will want to play it again and again, it will take many rounds to figure out the right place to drive your ball and the dliabolical greens that present three and even four putts. The club is not too far from Chattanooga, Tenn, and what a wonderful place to dine and take a walk on the riverfront. The city has come a long way over the years, and is going through a rennaissance to attract tourists. A great way to spend a few days.
