Sitting high above the city of Chattanooga, the course at Lookout Mountain Club was originally constructed as the centrepiece of the Fairyland mountain resort. The layout was one of Seth Raynor’s final designs before he died in 1926 and was constructed by his assistant Charles Banks from the architect’s detailed plans.
Unfortunately, a combination of events – Raynor’s death, a rainstorm that washed away a number of holes before the course opened and the onset of the Great Depression – ensured that, for more than seventy years, the full potential of the spectacular property was never realised.
All that changed in 1997 when Brian Silva was asked to complete the Raynor vision and so he embarked on a program to refurbish bunkers, add new sand traps and restore greens to their original dimensions.
The result of this work speaks for itself and replica holes at the Biarritz 4th, Short 6th, Alps 11th and Redan 13th now adequately show off the talents of the original architect.
