“Unpolished Gem”

What a sad state for what had been a GEM!

Played the course over the years and each year saw decline! This year it finally hit the bottom!

Greens are like the rough at most courses! They don't even cut them each day!

Tried to allow for the heavy rains but that isn't the base cause here!

Just horribly maintained traps, greens, fairways etc!

Driving an hour to try and play through this is just not worth it!

Don't waste your time!

I returned to Mt. Mitchell Golf Course some twenty-one years after having fallen in love with it, and the old romance is still there.

Despite the fact that a summer of constant heavy rain has waterlogged this beautiful track, the beauty of its setting, the genius of its design, and the care with which it has been maintained are ever present.

I guarantee you that the par three #11 hole will be a memorable experience for every golfer. The back nine especially, with the South Toe River threading its way through nearly every hole, will have you coming back at every opportunity.

My wife and I had heard about this course for years. When we found ourselves in the vicinity we thought we would play it. The course is fine. It can't compare to the private clubs in the mts, but it will keep you attentive. The back nine is the better of the two. What sets this course apart is the setting. It is pretty special and the views of the surrounding mountains are worth the greens fee. If you are in the area it is worth stopping off to play.

A terrific golf course with fantastic views of Mount Mitchell. The course is in very good condition. This year it is challenged with the excessive rain the area is getting making for some areas to be extremely wet. Despite this, it is still a great course to play while in the Asheville area. While it has a few holes with some elevation changes, the majority of the holes are in the valley with the Toe River either crossing fairways and rumbling along side them. Plenty of variety and challenges will be found at the course. It continues to be a favorite of us whenever we are in the Asheville. Just note it is a Cart Path only course so be prepared for a lot of walking and a longer round of golf. Overall a terrific golf course - a hidden gem!
