Mel Graham is the visionary behind the Club at Longview, the history of Longview dates back to the 1800’s when it was first known as The Longview Black Jack Farm. In 1953 Mel Graham’s father purchased the property in order to relocate the family dairy farm. Mel grew up working on the family dairy farm and has always had a love for this piece of beautiful property.
In 2001, Mel’s dream of The Club at Longview was put into action by Mel and his partners. As Jack Nicklaus stood on this property, and looked at the gentle rolling hills with its pines and hardwoods, its creeks, ponds and nature preserves, he said, “It’s as if it was always meant to be the home of a great golf course.” Two years later, on October 20, 2003, The Club at Longview officially opened!
The Club at Longview features the only gated residential golf course in the Charlotte region to earn a place in Golf Digest’s prestigious “best in State” rankings, where it has been a fixture among North Carolina’s top 20 ever since its 2003 opening.
The Club at Longview offers manor-style luxury estates in the Charlotte area’s only gated residential community with a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. Located in South Charlotte, North Carolina, minutes from I-485 and just across the Union County line, this private gate enclave is convenient to all that Charlotte has to offer yet provides the perfect retreat in which to escape the ordinary.
