Waynesville, NC Championship Golf Courses
Each of our nine-hole layouts starts and ends at the historic Lodge building and has a par of 35. With four sets of tees, all courses are accessible to players of all abilities. And, a combination of Bentgrass greens and Bluegrass/Rye fairways means our course stays relatively green all winter, when many courses go dormant and brown.
The Carolina course is the original nine-hole layout and is the brainchild of Donald Ross, one of the most prolific architects in the game’s history. Opened in 1926, Carolina lies in a valley, beneath the backdrop of the surrounding Balsam Mountains. While relatively flat and straight, the Carolina course demands precision iron play into mounded greens that are a trademark of Donald Ross designs. The Carolina course plays 2,969 yards from the championship tees. View More Pictures
Blue Ridge, completed in 1986, is the newest, longest and most challenging leg of the three courses. The sprawling layout is the most mountainous, as it follows a creek up the valley before winding back down the opposite side of the stream. Keep in mind that most putts will break toward the stream while playing this nine. Blue Ridge plays 2,974 yards from the championship tees. View More Pictures
