“Beautiful and breathtaking scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

I have been playing at Sapphire since 1987 when it was called Holly Forest. I have always enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the design of the course. The staff was extremely helpful and the perfect ending to a round of golf is visiting the restaurant. The woodfired oven cooked pizza is to die for. I always enjoy going there when we visit my family and would highly recommend it to anyone vacationing in the Cashiers area

“Excellant NC Mountain Golf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

Getting to this golf course, and the town of Sapphire, requires patience - it's off the interstate and alot of the way is 40 MPH, curvy mountain roads - so slow down and enjoy the scenery. Same goes for when you get to the course - slow down and enjoy every minute you're there. "Beautiful" is an understatement - I hit a couple balls out of bounds and just didn't seem to care - the scenery is a real stress eraser. A challenge from the 1st blind tee shot through the 18th green, this course would be even tougher for anyone with mobility issues (some steep side hill lies are all over the place). Impeccably friendly staff. Discount for afternoon play. Not for speed golfers - take your time and enjoy all this course has to offer. Don't forget your camera!
