    The Cliffs at Walnut Cove

    The Cliffs at Walnut Cove provides an absolutely stunning atmosphere, and the scenery is second to none. I had the privilege of playing this course in college, and thankfully we were able to take carts walkers beware. This course is extremely hilly, and walking is not going to be an option. With that said, there is nothing wrong at all with taking a cart and enjoying your round in style.

    As I mentioned, the layout is stunning, the views are amazing, and the scenery cant be beat. While standing on the practice putting green, you will be able to see all around the mountain, and the views are truly breathtaking. The course layout is very tricky, but mostly due to the extreme undulation throughout. This modern Jack Nicklaus design will not let you down. Starting with the 450 yard par 4 monster to begin your round, you will l have little time to ease your way into the round. Luckily, the next few holes are quite simple, until you reach the par 5 8th which is another mammoth of a hole. Sitting at just under 600 yards, and tight as can be, you will need to drive it long and keep it straight or trouble awaits. You are greeted with back to back par 4s that are fairly simple, but another monster awaits on hole 12. Sitting at just under 500 yards, you will need another big drive and it must be straight or you will have trouble reaching the green in two. Ironically enough, I have only mentioned the monster holes, and the course sits at just over 6,600 yards. The distance all comes from the natural elevation throughout the mountainside, and it provides a truly unique layout. I do not recommend passing up on this Nicklaus masterpiece, if all else fails, you can at least stop by for the stunning views.
