Get in the swing at Asheville-area golf courses
Mountain golf courses offer spectacular scenery as well as unique playing experiences that coastal and flat-land courses just can't duplicate. The area is home to many challenging courses that follow the undulating curves of the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains. Many of these courses are known for their tight, narrow fairways with steep slopes and tall trees on each side that make the playing experience a thrill.
The Western North Carolina region boasts more than 40 championship golf courses. These include resort courses, like the Donald Ross-designed course at The Omni Grove Park Inn and the Crowne Plaza Resort golf course that features views of downtown Asheville, as well as municipal and daily play courses. Most golf courses are within a one-hour leisurely mountain drive from Asheville.
