In the heart of the Blue Ridge mountains, Asheville, NC, offers some breathtaking golf. The Grove Park Inn’s golf course opened in 1899 at the base of Sunset Mountain and was redesigned in 1924 by renowned Scottish architect Donald Ross, who also designed the nearby Buncombe County Municipal Golf Course in 1927. Asheville is also home to the Crowne Plaza Resort, the Country Club of Asheville and Black Mountain Golf Club.

Another great course in the area is Cummings Cove in Hendersonville, a scenic venue that is challenging yet playable for any skill level at 5,850 yards from the longest tees. Other top regional destinations include Reems Creek Golf Club in Weaverville, Broadmoor Golf Links in Fletcher, Maggie Valley Resort and the Waynesville Inn Golf Resort & Spa in Haywood County, and Crooked Creek in Henderson County – all within an hour of this hip and trendy North Carolina gem. And if you have a family, be sure they check out Asheville's family-friendly things to do while you're on the course.
