3. Stone Mountain Park!
Is a Major Attraction for Stone Mountain.
The Lasershow Spectacular debuted in 1983 on the world’s largest screen, the 825-foot-tall granite outcropping.
In 2008, for the 25th anniversary, the sound system and pyrotechnics for the Lasershow were amped up.
Innovative when the show launched, the lasers, over time, began to look elementary. In 2011, Mountainvision was launched employing state-of-the-art digital video projection to give the show 3-D-like effects without the need for 3-D glasses. Video opened up a dramatic difference and allowed for new options that the lasers weren’t capable of. Mountainvision can do things like, turn Stone Mountain into a Volcano spewing lava down its sides or the rock crumble right before your eyes. The projection is five times the size of an IMAX screen!

Located in one of the most popular attractions in Georgia, Stone Mountain Park, just minutes from downtown Atlanta, Stone Mountain Golf Club features two championship golf courses and offers scenic views of historic Stonhe Mountain and Stone Mountain Lake.
What makes Stone Mountain Golf Club such a remarkable experience is the unique personalities of its two courses. The Stonemont Course is a classic challenge that places emphasis on accuracy and strategic course management. The Lakemont Course complements Stonemont with a less demanding, target-oriented layout and exquisite views of Stone Mountain and the surrounding lake.
Designed and built in 1969 by the renowned Robert Trent Jones Sr., this masterpiece has offered a pure test of golf from all tees since its inception. The Stonemont Course at Stone Mountain Golf Club has played host to numerous national, professional events as well as Georgia amateur championships.
The Stonemont Course is laid out over gently rolling and cantered fairways of premier Bermuda grass and greens of immaculate bent grass. The par 70 layout stretches 6,863 yards, and is challenging with its narrow fairways, strategically placed bunkers and numerous stands of Georgia pines.
Georgia native John LaFoy designed the Lakemont Course at Stone Mountain Golf Club. It features incredible views of Stone Mountain and the lake.
The front 9 holes of the Lakemont Course wind around Stone Mountain Lake, with six holes having water in play. The back 9 offers beautiful holes with rock outcroppings and four holes where water comes into play. LaFoy's penchant for mounding and dramatic bunkering is evident throughout the course. The dramatic elevation changes offer a unique ambience that appeals to every golfer.
