Carolina Mornings Spotlight: Golfing in the Blue Ridge Mountains


Carolina Mornings Spotlight: Golfing in the Blue Ridge Mountains
Golfing in the Blue Ridge Mountains is one of our absolute favorite summer activities! Our mountainous, wild landscape creates the perfect backdrop for fun and our climate is just excellent for a full day on the course. We have over a dozen golf courses in the area, each one unique and beautiful, so to help introduce newcomers to our mountain haven, we've highlighted a few of our favorites below!
 
Reems Creek Golf Club
This par-72 mountain course is a favorite of locals and a big draw for golf-lovers traveling to the area. Reems Creek Golf Club is located in Weaverville, just a brief 20 minute drive to Asheville, and it perfectly captures the splendor of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It has regularly been rated 4 stars on Golf Digest's "Places to Play" list, so don't miss an opportunity to enjoy this fantastic course!
 
Where to Stay
Looking to stay in a home away from home that's located close to the course? Check out Tree Tops - an absolutely beautiful 3 bedroom home situated in a quiet neighborhood setting. The private in-ground pool will bring your vacation to the next level, and you'll absolutely fall in love with the long range mountain views!
 
Black Mountain Golf Course
Black Mountain Golf Course is one of the area's most popular and we honestly couldn't be more delighted that it's right in our backyard. It was designed by Donald Ross and boasts 18 holes at 6,215 yards. Its location is framed in by the dramatically beautiful Black Mountains, so teeing off here is most certainly a memorable experience! Best of all? It's only a 15 minute drive to Downtown Asheville!
 
Where to Stay
Black Mountain is a fantastic home base for your area vacation! A community that boasts its own historical draw, Black Mountain epitomizes the sense and feel of a classic mountain town. Black Bear Cabin, a beautiful pet friendly rental located on the outskirts of town, is perfect for small families or couples looking to experience the best of all the area amenities.
 
Springdale Country Club
Springdale Country Club is an absolute dream of a course! Located in Canton, NC, Springdale Country Club has been family owned and operated since 1968 and it remains a local favorite for golf lovers! The challenging 6,800 yard course will leave you feeling empowered, peaceful, and perhaps a bit tired - trekking across rolling hills is a great workout!
 
Where to Stay
This golf course is so beautiful, it only makes sense that travelers to the area would want to stay nearby to keep it accessible for every day of their vacation! Truly Breathless, an astoundingly beautiful 3 bedroom home in Canton, is located just a short drive from the course. You'll fall head over heels for the design of this home - and the long range, year round views will take your break away!
