Best Golf Courses Near Boone, NC
Located in the gorgeous mountains of Western Carolina, Boone is a vibrant, outdoorsy college town where residents and visitors exuberantly follow the town’s “Live it Up!” motto.” Some of the best mountain courses in the country—private jewels such as Blowing Rock, Diamond Creek, Grandfather, and Elk River—have been etched into the hillsides of this Blue Ridge Mountain region. If you’re looking for a tee time, Boone itself is home to the outstanding Boone Golf Club, one of Golf Advisor’s top-rated courses in North Carolina, and Willow Creek, a pretty nine-hole par-3 course where water adds charm and challenge. You may find a discounted tee time at Sugar Mountain, a 4,500-yard, par-64 layout in Banner Elk that Golf Advisor has rated among America’s best short courses, or at Mountain Aire in West Jefferson, where you’ll be treated to sublime scenery as you negotiate the layout’s big elevation changes. Summers are delightfully mild and low on humidity here, but if you want to experience Boone in all its glory, come in fall when the leaves are bursting with color.
