Life at Elk River Club means excellence all around, from luxury real estate and meticulous fairways to a world-class Equestrian Center and time spent at our mountain Clubhouse. Our members choose this community because of the experiences we offer, all with uncompromising convenience. As you would expect in a community with North Carolina’s first Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, we also have a private, on-premise airport, Har-Tru tennis courts, a pool and wellness complex, spa services, fishing, hiking and more. Speaking of ease, the North Carolina High Country makes the perfect backdrop for enjoying a delicious meal with friends and family. In today’s post, we’re shining a spotlight on our Clubhouse and dining options—keep reading for an overview and all the palate-pleasing details. 

Mountain Spendlor
Our Clubhouse complex overlooks the Elk River and the 9th hole. Imagine the burble of the river, with dripping branches and shadows cast on its surface. There are glossy sections where the light sparkles and others where the current creates ripples. The pristine golf course is set against the Blue Ridge Mountains and covers 35 acres of fairways with altitude ranges from 3,450 feet to 4,650 feet. The complex itself is a spacious 50,000 square feet, housing multi-level dining, a 15-foot waterfall, locker rooms, card rooms and a fully-stocked pro shop. Cheerful flowerbeds and cobblestone walkways complement the design of the complex. Members are welcome to relax beside the outdoor fire pit, where the flames dance in reds and yellows, oranges and white.

Culinary Delights Await
The Elk River Club team has been serving up culinary delights for more than 30 years here—members and their guests know us for our casual gourmet and top-rated wine selections. [1] Epicures are invited to savor a gourmet meal in our Main Dining Room or keep things casual and away from the elements at our Grille Room and Bar. Head over to the new Riverside Grille after a round of golf as you order a delicious lunch or dinner with friends. The Grille’s full bar, multiple TVs and fireplace make it an ideal daytime or evening gathering spot. This outdoor dining facility features delicious food sure to please all ages. Rounding out our dining options are our executive rooms, home to private parties or meetings.

What Our Members Are Saying…

“We were surprised at the variety of dining choices including the outdoor pool grill, the equestrian center food truck events, and the gourmet clubhouse dinners. The chef ranks with the best we’ve experienced, rivaling our own Charleston restaurant scene.” — Barry & Ann Blake
