Phenomenal Course w/Incredible Views...Just a little on the soggy side!

Had the opportunity to play 3 rounds here in the last week and was amazed by the condition of the course, considering 10 inches of rain had fallen in the last week. Every staff... read more

A beautiful layout for a golf course, but the course was grossly overbooked-to the point of taking 3 hrs to play 9 holes. Not only that, the course grass was like hitting every shot out of the rough. You almost couldn't hit a putt hard enough to get it to the hole. They charged us full price for this misery!... More

No, the mowers are not broken. The fact that we have had over 10 inches of rain in a 2 week period means very limited mowing that we can do on the course. We use 9 minute tee time intervals and do not overbook. Perhaps, we failed to speed up a slow group in front of you. All foursomes should... More

This course has a great layout and design. This year, the greens, yet slow, were true and lush. First time I've seen it with the traps full of good quality sand and in good shape. The course was in great shape. Great friendly experience and fun driving the switchbacks getting there from Marion. I think that area is called the... More

Overall the course was in great shape. Greens somewhat slow but receptive. Gorgeous views under the shadows of Mt Mitchell.

We drove from Black Mountain to Mount Mitchell Golf. 16 miles as the crow flies, and we used GPS to get there. It took us 2 1/2 hours. It turns out that there is a Highway 80 North and a Highway 80 South (as far as I can tell, you can go north or south on either) and both have... More

Well kept Mountain Course and the Greens putted as well as any I have ever played in 33 years of playing. It is a challenge especially playing it for the 1st time but I will be back.

We just spent five days in the mountains of western NC. On three of our days we played golf at Mount Mitchell Golf Club. The course was in great condition with lush fairways and greens that roll and putt so true. Our hats are off to the superintendent and the grounds crew on a job well done. If you are... More

This used to be the best course in western north Carolina. It no longer is.... the greens are awful, you can not get a ball to the hole. The grass has grown over the cups it has been so long since they have been changed. You can't find your ball in the fairway they are so long. The people who... More

This person must have had a really bad day or confused us with some other course. Please read the review from 4/25, 3 days earlier. More
