Head to the High Country this summer for a golf getaway

boone nc golfThere’s no better place to enjoy your favorite past-time than the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina. Boone is surrounded by resort golf destinations such as Linville, and Blowing Rock, and offers guests plenty of golf course options.

The Boone Golf Club is a spectacular golf course to play. Located in the heart of town, convenient to Blowing Rock Road, and our historic bed and breakfast in Boone, this course is always a pleasure to play. An Ellis Maples design, the course is surrounded by the mountains that flank over Boone, and offers spectacular greens. The course is open from April to November. Also, the clubhouse features a newly renovated cafe, The Fairway Cafe, owned and operated by Casa Rustica, one of the best restaurants in Boone. Find Boone Golf Club at 433 Fairway Drive in Boone, or call them at (828) 264-8760

If you are looking for a fun course to play one afternoon, try Willow Valley Golf Course. This quick 9-hole course is situated in between Boone and Valle Crucis and features picturesque scenery. It’s located at 354 Bairds Creek Road.

Mountaineer Driving Range & Golf Center is a driving range that is located right in the middle of town. Visitors can enjoy an afternoon hitting a few balls around and not have to drive too far away or pay expensive prices elsewhere. The range is located on Highway 105 Extension right behind Papa John’s pizza.

RedTail Mountain Golf Course in nearby Mountain City, Tennessee is a very short, beautiful drive away. This course is in the middle of a 720 acre residential community, and offers resort style amenities in a beautiful setting at the base of several mountains. The course is open to the public, although it is not always advertised as such (as of June 2017). To play at RedTail, you’ll take Highway 421 South out of Boone, and into Tennessee. The course is located just over the state line, and before the town of Mountain City.
