Grandfather Golf and Country Club Course Review
The Grandfather Golf and Country Club is a private mountain resort sitting on a valley between Linville Ridge and Grandfather Mountain and offering a spectacular mlange of natural beauty and comfort for its visitors. The golf course was designed by architect Ellis Maples way back in 1967 and it features 7010 yards of golf from its longest tees for a 72 par. The Grandfather Golf and Country Club suffered a couple of restoration projects over its long existence, in the 80s and the 90s respectively. In the latest renovation job, the bunkering was rebuilt under the close supervision of David Graham and now it looks like a Donald Ross (in terms of design) golf course, according to Maples. Keep in mind that the Grandfather Golf and Country Club is a privately owned resort, its available for its members and their guests only and also and also its pretty expensive.
However, the challenge and the overall experience is worth the hefty price tag, and if you have the opportunity to play here, you should take advantage. The best thing about playing this golf course is the epic scenery, i.e. the magnificent views of the mountains. I must also mention the fact that the Grandfather Golf and Country Club golf course is very difficult for greater than 20 HCP, with slick greens which make 3-4 putts very probable. The atmosphere is serene and relaxed, lush and peaceful, everything is quiet and awe inspiring, making for a gorgeous golfing experience if it ever was one. The air is cool and fresh and while playing the Grandfather Golf and Country Club youll imbibe in the lovely mountain-sunshine, while enjoying the beautiful fairways and the courses impeccable greens, together with the luscious streams which crisscross the property. If you love golf, youll adore the Grandfather Golf and Country Club.
