In 2001, Mel Graham put the vision of The Club at Longview into action. As Jack Nicklaus stood on this property and looked at the gently 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 old-world charm and architecture found throughout the Club and the Longview community is a direct result of Mel’s travels throughout Europe. The architecture withstands the test of time and improves with age.
Twenty years after developing one of Charlotte’s most successful luxury gated communities, Mel & Terri Graham were approached by Concert Golf Partners to be considered as their partner and long-term successor for The Club at Longview. One of Charlotte’s elite private clubs, with an exclusive membership consisting of some of the city’s top CEOs and luminaries. Under Graham’s leadership, Longview is debt free and in pristine condition.
One of the reasons the Grahams decided to embrace Concert Golf’s proposal to them was to help continue Graham’s long-term vision for the Club and help take it to the next level. The Club at Longview will receive a fresh multi-million dollar capital improvement program from Concert Golf in the coming years while commitments to the Club’s legacy members will be honored.
There was no imminent need to make a transition, as Longview was completely debt free and 2021 was a record year for the club. However, after being approached by Concert, Graham seized the opportunity to capitalize on the strong momentum that has benefitted nearly all clubs these past 18 months. “Longview is very special to me in many ways but most importantly it’s going to be our personal home as well so I will remain as a partner to ensure consistency, quality, history and knowledge of the Club as the original founder and continue to provide direction and vision for the future,” he added.
