Guide to Planning the Ultimate Golf Outing

As spring arrives and the weather heats up, it’s time to concentrate on the important things in life. Namely: golf. Your golf game isn’t going to get better on its own, so you’ll need to start hitting the course early and often. The best way to shake off that winter rust is by planning a group golf outing with some friends. What better way to plan a weekend golf retreat than at Callaway Resort & Gardens? Home two of the best Georgia golf courses, you’ve got a lot to think about when it comes to planning the ultimate golf outing at Callaway Resort & Gardens.

Pick a Golf Course

When you and your friends schedule tee times, you’ll want to choose the best golf course for your team. Callaway Resort & Gardens features two stunning courses worth exploring. The Mountain View Course has been the site of 12 PGA Buick Challenge tournaments. Not only is it a gorgeous course, but it gives you the rare opportunity to test your skills against an elite golf course. More interested in something with wider fairways in a garden-like environment. Play a round at the Lake View Course, and you’re sure to have a wonderful experience. If you’re not sure which one to play, why not play both? We have packages with unlimited golf, and don’t forget to warm up at our world-class Twin Oaks Practice Facility.

Lodging & Dining

What makes Callaway Resort & Gardens the destination for group outing activities near Atlanta is the fact that the lodging here is exceptional. When you book one of our golf packages, you and your buddies can stay at our newly renovated lodge or massage the kinks out of your swing with a stay in The Spa. You can even reserve your own cottage or villa, so you’ll have all the time you need to trash talk over your golf game. Prefer your trash talk over drinks and food? Who doesn’t? After your round, hit Champions Grille in the Mountain View Golf Clubhouse. If you prefer craft beers, don’t miss out on Cason’s Tap Room. With six bars and restaurants open year-round – and three additional ones open during the summer – you have several options for dining and hanging out with friends and family throughout your stay.
