Little surprised at some of these reviews. Just finished 3 rounds of golf at Mount Mitchell and the course was in fantastic shape. It is not longest course, but the greens and the rough do present a challenge. Very few courses can compare with the views presented to the golfer on every hole. Dining was great and the menu offered a variety. It is cartpath only and I am fine with that, may be the reason the course stays in such good shape. Staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. Liked it so much that we changed our fall golf trip from the Pinehurst area to Mount Mitchell.

Mt. Mitchell is a beautiful golf course! It plays a little short at aprox 6,500 from the back tees and the greens are slightly too slow for my taste. However, it’s very well maintained and the scenery is just stunning. For being a mountain course it’s relatively flat, but there are a couple holes with elevated tees and greens. All around wonderful golf course and I would highly recommend playing. My wife isn’t a golfer and she enjoyed just riding along and viewing the scenery. Only downside is it’s cart path only and there isn’t a driving range. You have to hit #1 cold. It’s certainly worth checking out.

A beautiful course with wonderful scenery. But I think it has the kookiest rule I have ever seen on a golf course: cart path only. that is golf cart push car and pull carts. I was stunned with such foolishness. The reason they gave me was that they had people go onto the green with the carts. I think for the amount of money we paid to play there they can have signs made to remind golfers to stay 10 feet from the greens and they could afford to have marshalls get off theirs duffs there and patrol the course. I'll never play there again under such back woods rules.

Almost entirely flat course in the South Toe River flood plain at the base of Mt. Mitchell. What the Brits would call a holiday course, and a fine one at that. A fairly easy course for the skilled golfer who can keep it in play, and enjoyable for golfers of any level. Beautiful scenery. Greens (moderate speeds) and fairways (very soft - little or no roll) generally in excellent condition, but bunkers can be a little ragged in places. Carts required on weekends until mid-afternoon, and carts must be kept on paths at all times. Easy walking course, when permitted, but trolleys (pull carts, push carts) are not allowed. Play can be extremely slow on crowded weekends (5 hr. plus). Small golf shop and small snack bar. Full service bar open in peak periods.

Great golf course, in great condition. Pricey at times, but you get what you pay for. My only complaint was that the fairways were too thick. However they were healthy. Great track!
