I've played many courses in my golfing/working career and this is one of the best. The weather was perfect (cool 65) for a round of captain's choice. Unfortunately the grounds were wet, so it was cart path only. Other than that, the day was perfect. A mountain course with plenty of flats and a few elevation changes. I'll be sure... More

Mt Mitchell golf course is a fun course to play. The mountain views are fantastic. The course layout is mostly flat and fairly easy to score on. If you enjoy mountain views, clear trout streams, and cool temps coupled with low humidity then this is the course for you. Did not eat at Teo's but have heard good comments from... More

This course is in the shadow of the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi, yet, surprisingly the course is in a valley, so it's very manageable, both for carts and walking. Due to frequent rain, carts are usually required to stay on the paths, a minor inconvenience. We stay for a month at a mountain retreat that overlooks the 12th... More

I've played this course several times every year since the 80's. Have noticed over the last handful of years that the condition of the course is declining. Use to be the entire course was lush and manicured. Now the bunkers are terrible, fairways not great and greens are equal to a muni. I think the owner doesn't want to spend... More

We have been lucky to play some wonderful golf courses - Pinehurst #2, Oakmont, Dunes Club, etc. Mount Mitchell Golf Club is treasure in western North Carolina. It offers a great layout for all levels of players. The views of the mountains and the sounds of the Toe River make for a beautiful and serene experience. We cannot wait to... More

Well I wanted to give the owners of Mt. Mitchell Golf Course the benefit of the doubt! Word on the street was they were doing some work like Senior Tees, Drainage and Cart Paths. While everyone I spoke to hoped for Greens redo's and Fairway's with grass versus Thatch I wanted to see what was being done. Well they are... More

Played Tue about 3pm. Storms all around, but not a drop of rain during my round. Not crowded... Played in 2.5hrs. Greens, Fariways, Tees and traps in very good condition...especially considering the extremely cold winter they experienced. Barry and Dean gave me a warm welcome and updated me on the course conditions. The cart paths are a little rough in... More

As anon golfer I enjoyed driving the cart in such a beautiful setting- the golfers enjoyed it too - lovely maintained course with some demanding water-which we did not always avoid

I have been visiting this golf course since the mid 80s...People would fly in clients to play this lovely course not far from Mt.Mitchell. Two trips this summer showed a real decline in the entire area in and around the golf course.It was flooded due to abundant rains but the entire course and the houses looked rather *shabby* after years...
