A Rees Jones & Bill Bergin Highlands Course
The Course at McLemore is the only true mountaintop golf experience in the Southeast. Resting on a rugged plateau atop Lookout Mountain, Georgia, 2,000 feet above sea level, the Course overlooks the wilderness area of McLemore Cove and Pigeon Mountain.
Rees Jones and Bill Bergin have spent the better part of 2017 developing the renovation strategy for The Course at McLemore. Their overall objective is to adjust yardages in order to create more variety and to provide a world-class test for the game’s best players and accessibility for the beginners. Rees and Bill will partner on enhancing the greens complexes, optimizing angles to green locations, and improving fairway and greenside bunker placements.
While already a dramatic mountaintop course, the designers will be adding even more drama to the course by dropping the 18th fairway down to the edge of the cliff overlooking McLemore Cove. Few other national courses offer this kind of spectacular view.
Key date: Grand Re-Opening: Spring, 2018
