Good course at a fair price

Played the front nine while on a family vacation in the Asheville area. True to other reviews, the front nine is very playable with generous fairways. Greens were in good shape but surprisingly slow - perhaps due to the large amount of rain the area has had.. Overall course conditions were good. The layout is very scenic. Elevation changes added interest without being overwhelming. Wish we had time to play the back nine. I’d definitely play the course when I’m in the area.

Fantastic Track and Resort!

I've been playing a lot of golf lately, and visiting a lot of new courses (for me) in and around the Asheville area in the past few weeks, and if I had one chance to play golf, while staying in the Asheville area, this course would be the one I would choose to play. The layout is as challenging as you'll want it, and the conditions of the course were fantastic. There are a lot of ho hum golf courses out there that simply present a bland canvas and let you go at it. Not this place. I caution the higher handicap golfer about this place though. There are some tee shots, and some holes, especially on the back nine, where you HAVE to hit is straight. The back nine is extremely narrow, and requires precision shot making. But this is why I love this course. As a reference point, I played with a man who admitted he only played a couple of times a year, and he lost at least one ball per hole on this golf course, so if you don't hit it straight, you'll need a make sure you have ample supply of balls to get you around this course. I will be back to this resort, not only to play this track, but also to play the Apple Valley course, which actually looks better than this course. What a memorable day and experience!

Interesting Mountain Course, But Pricey

A tale of two nines: pretty wide open with elevation changes on the front nine with much tighter wooded holes on the back nine. Five par fives and par threes make the course interesting and different than many others. Conditions were okay given the abundant rainfall recently, but the greens rolled very true. I just don't think it's worth $56 for a morning tee time; maybe $40-$45 would be more reasonable. Was also disappointed to see a lack of food/beverage options in the clubhouse at the turn (the restaurant was closed with no beverage cart service). But I would come back to play here if I was vacationing in the Lake Lure area again.

Older of their two courses. Great condition, especially the greens. Only issues, fairways a little tight with hanging trees. Could use thinning out.

Best of the Best

An absolutely fabulous course. Ranks the best of any course. Tops any public course in the Charlotte area. A must play. Greens and fairways are in excellent condition. I would put greens about 10-11 on speed.

Mountain golf

Great mountain golf course. Amazing conditions. Fun layout with a lot of elevation changes. A little tough to get to as it’s in rural area but well worth the trip. 39$ for 18 holes w a cart!?! A must play

A Real Gem

A true championship course. For the time of year conditions were good and the greens were in excellent condition. Nice challenging layout with 5 sets of tees. Most of the bunkers had soft white sand, they were working on the others for the high season. Good quality golf carts. There is a grill on-site for a quick or relaxing bite. Would play again without hesitation.

Good vibes

Beautiful...played two balls and never rushed at all. Greens look great. Couldn't miss a putt out there. Fairways too. No problems at all. Fun course from the tips...longish but fair.

Great Course - Nice layout

This is a well challenging course with great scenery, especially the back nine. Excellent layout other than possibly #7. Fairways and greens in good condition. Best value and public course in Western North Carolina.

Great Course, On tight side

Nice course, challenging play. Definitely in need of thinning out. Many shots penalized by tight or over hanging trees. Would make the course more playable.
