About

Type Public
Par 72
Length 6964 yards
Slope 146
Rating 74.3

There are 27 holes of championship golf available at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club. They are divided into three nines, naturally named Blue, Ridge and Trail, that are played in different 18-hole combinations. The holes have an advantageous setting amidst mountains and trees, offering both privacy and scenery. The setting is made even more peacefully secluded by the fact that there are no parallel fairways throughout the entire golf course. The holes were carefully carved from the forests and hillsides, providing each nine with a different character. With four water holes, the Ridge/Trail combination has the most water of any of the courses. There are also strategically placed bunkers throughout but the towering, mature trees present the most formidable challenges. The course starts off rather gently with the player-friendly Ridge, but becomes progressively more difficult on the back nine.

Beautiful Property

This course is great..:elevation changes, tee boxes with natural landscape in views, challenging, fast greens. It has everything. The timing of nice weather in early October presents fall foliage views that are difficult to match on a golf course. Pace of play was a little slow for a weekday,

Great Day for cheap golf

The hot deal really made the course worth it and having 27 holes makes the course unique and more fun as well as makes you want to go back to get a different set of 18 holes in

Blur Ridge

For how dry it has been lately the course was in very good shape. The greens were great, the bunkers nicely raked, and the rest of the course was very nice considering the dry weather, One of the best courses in the area.

Great layout

We drove over an hour to play this course. Great value. The course conditions were superb for as many rounds get played on it. The greens were a bit slow but not to the point of being a problem. Fairways, tee boxes, rough and traps were well maintained. The sand in the traps was a bit course but playable without issue. While the holes don’t have a “shot maker” feel, you can be punished for not hitting the needed spots. Definitely makes you think and sometimes scramble to recover. If you haven’t played it, you need to play all three nines.

Great atmosphere

This course, for the weather we’ve been having, was in great condition. From tee to green they really know how to take care of a course for sure. It’s been a few years since I was there and the entire staff was so accommodating and friendly. I took my older son here for the first time and he had an absolute ball playing this challenging course. He can’t wait to go back and now wants to take his friends there to play.
