Ready to tee off? We’ve got you covered. The high country boasts some top-notch golf courses and we’ve arranged for our guests to enjoy the benefits of these two:
- Linville Land Harbor: The layout here follows the native terrain, creating the perfect combination between challenging golf and unforgettable views. The distinctly different nines will test every aspect of your game. 18 challenging holes with tree-lined fairways, fast-paced greens, and several water features await golfers of all skill levels. The pro shop is well stocked and the 19th Hole Grill will quench your thirst and appetite after your game.
- Mountain Glen Golf Club: This is one of the most beautiful courses in the region. They also boast a first-rate clubhouse and full practice facilities. The front nine is more of a links-style course with small bent grass greens and relatively flat open fairways. The back nine works its way up to what was once referred to as “Cranberry Draw.” The 11th hole, uphill dog-leg left was rated as one of the best par 4’s in western North Carolina.
If you’d like to explore a few others, these public courses are ideal options too:
Boone Golf Club: Ranked #46 of the top 50 courses you can play in North Carolina by the North Carolina Golf Panel, the Boone Golf Club takes full advantage of the region’s beautiful landscape and spectacular scenery. There’s a newly-renovated pro shop and the Casa Rustica Fairway Café is a local favorite for breakfast and lunch.
Sugar Mountain Golf Club: Most people associate Sugar Mountain with the best skiing in the area, but it also has a par 64 layout that gives golfers a cool and breezy experience. Surrounded by beautiful rhododendrons, craggy pinnacles and rushing streams, golfing at the Sugar Mountain Golf Club is a real joy. Professionally managed and well maintained, there’s also an outdoor deck for dining so you can enjoy the sweeping views after a relaxing game.
So, when you combine the views and the weather, you’ve set the stage for some great golfing. Bring your “A’ game.
