Amazing

Simply stated, Mountaintop is a fabulous golf experience. The views will literally take your breath away (#2 from the back tees). Your camera will never be more valuable than the day you play here. The comfort stations are loaded with any kind of food and drink you'll ever want. If you ever get the chance, make the trip.

Western North Carolina Shining Star

Mountaintop provides a golf experience that is unforgettable. From the moment you arrive the staff wants to make sure you, the player has a memorable day. When I arrived, I was shown the driving range where upbeat/rock music was playing on the speakers. Club Professionals, lead by Director of Golf Micah Hicks were on the range to help with any free instruction. The practice facility is large and better than most I see on the PGA Tour. The Tom Fazio design takes advantage of the high elevation with stunning yet challenging holes. It's not a very difficult layout but it's far from a pushover. The greens were VERY GOOD. They were fast with a true roll. Any missed putt is the players fault, not the condition of the green. To enhance the experience there are comfort stations on the course that has everything to make a round fantastic like sandwiches, salads, energy bars, candy and beverages. You just take what you want. After the round you can enjoy the rustic elegance of the clubhouse and restaurant. I racked my brain after playing Mountaintop to find something critical of this Club. I can honestly say, there is nothing I could think of. This is one of the best courses and experiences I've had as a player and I highly recommend Mountaintop if you get the opportunity.

A true VIP expierence

I have been fortunate enough to make two trips to Mountaintop, hands down the two best golf trips I will ever go on. There is not a single detail overlooked at Mountaintop, it really is a VIP experience from the second you drive on to the property. The most difficult and beautiful course I have ever played. Very steep elevation changes and fast sloping greens with breath taking views on nearly every tee box. It is every golfers dream to play a course like Mountaintop.
