    Elk River Club Golf Course Review

    The Elk River Club is a private facility designed by the famous architect Jack Nicklaus and it was opened for play in 1984, being located in Banner Elk, North Carolina. The Elk River can be described as a championship golf course, being an interesting mlange of man-made and natural architecture sitting on a beautiful piece of real estate in the Blue Ridge Mountains, making for a beautiful journey and the ultimate golfing experience if youre lucky enough to get an invitation. The Elk River Clubs unique location allowed for the architect to create a highly dynamic golf course which will allow you to experiment with various golf strategies, being challenging enough for pro golfers and a true delight for amateurs and enthusiasts alike. Also, this golf course is ranked high, among the best in North Carolina, being one of the most beautiful in the state and in the United States for that matter. Jack Nicklauss design managed to integrate perfectly the golf course with the natural topography and the beautiful scenery offered by the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    Keep in mind this is a private equity club available for members and their guest only and its easy to reach, being a two hour drive from the Charlotte International Airport and an hour drive from the Tri Cities Airport. When designing this beautiful golf course, Jack Nicklaus was definitely inspired by the surrounding scenery, especially the meadows of Elk River, the beautiful mountains and the lush river valley, being in perfect harmony with nature when it came to shaping its fairways and greens. And truth be told, the architect did a marvelous job, as it managed to embody the natural elements of the real estate with the golf course itself, being considered one of the most intriguingly beautiful golf-layouts in the US, making playing golf a pure joy, regardless of your skill level.
