Reviewed on

I have had the opportunity to play at a lot of nice courses. Grandfather Golf and Country club up in the hills of North Carolina is the most picturesque course I have played. There is just something about being up in the mountains with the crisp air, fresh flowers, wildlife, and natural water hazards that makes this course a standout. The condition of the course is immaculate. You are playing at a top notch golf course, and the superintendent treats it just that way. The greens are tricky because of the mountain. You may see breaks that are not really there. There are tougher golf courses out there, but this one is worth bringing your camera, and someone to take your picture.


Pace of Play: Excellent

Course Conditions: Excellent

Staff Friendliness: Excellent

Value for the Money: Excellent

Quality of food & beverage: Excellent
