Designed by Ellis Maples and considered his architectural masterpiece, Grandfather Golf and Country Club offers an internationally renowned Championship Golf Course that has been ranked by the North Carolina Golf Panel as the second best course in North Carolina. Only Pinehurst No. 2 has been rated higher.
For Ellis Maples, this stunning mountain was a natural canvas to showcase his talent. As he stated in a letter dated 1965, “The magnificent scenery afforded by the west slope of Grandfather Mountain as it towers above the Linville River Valley provides a golf setting that is unequalled in North Carolina. Tremendous trees line the fairways, and the lake, streams, and topography afford opportunities for a great variety of interesting golf holes.”
