A Rees Jones & Bill Bergin 18-Hole Highlands Course
Resting on a rugged plateau atop Lookout Mountain, Georgia, 2,000 feet above sea level, McLemore overlooks the wilderness area of McLemore Cove and Pigeon Mountain in the heart of the Southeast.
Rees Jones and Bill Bergin spent the better part of 2017 developing the renovation strategy for The Course at McLemore, which led to adjusted yardages that create more variety and provide a world-class test for the game’s best players and accessibility for beginners. Jones and Bergin partnered on enhancing the greens complexes, optimizing angles to green locations, and improving fairway and greenside bunker placements.
The dramatic mountaintop course was further enhanced with the addition of the cliff-edge 18th fairway overlooking McLemore Cove over 500 feet below. Few other national courses offer this kind of spectacular view.
Great golf course, in excellent shape from tee to green. The views are absolutely breath taking. Hole 18 is no doubt the best finishing hole I've ever played. This is a must play course!
