Best Golf Courses Near Hendersonville, NC
Hendersonville, located 25 miles south of Asheville in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, is a beautiful little city. Famously the home base of golf course architect extraordinaire Tom Fazio, Hendersonville has attracted lots of retirees who like to play golf. Fazio has left his mark at private courses such as Champion Hills here and throughout the region, including at The Cliffs golf communities that spill over the border into South Carolina. For public-access play, look for tee times at Cummings Cove & Country Club, where the target-style challenge will get your heart pounding; Crooked Creek, one of the early housing-development courses that calls for accuracy off the tee and on approaches to devilishly bunkered greens; and sporty little Orchard Tree, an 18-hole par-3 course that tops out at 2,300 yards. Etowah Valley Golf & Resort has two older, atmospherically wooded nines and a more open newer nine, plus on-site lodge accommodations. After golf you’ll want to head to Hendersonville’s wide, historic Main Street where you’ll find an intriguing pinball museum, a salt-water aquarium, summer stock theater, and a Cheers! Trail of breweries, ciders and wineries. You will also find nationally acclaimed theater productions just beyond town at the Flat Rock Playhouse. Hendersonville recently became an official wine region. When you are in Hendersonville the message is clear: Get out and play!
