Ideal Western North Carolina Setting

North Carolina continues to attract new residents—close to 900,000 in the last decade as reported by The Fayetteville Observer. Two motivators cited in the article include geography and climate. Elk River Club is located in the North Carolina High Country—here, you’ll find the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains along with surprising amenities for a town of our size. The weather is mild and conducive to hiking, fishing and all sorts of family fun. Cultural arts, festivals, restaurants and shops are all easily accessible, providing entertainment options year-round. 

Jack Nicklaus Signature Course
Finding a mountain golf course with just the right amount of elevation change and challenge can be daunting, but not in our private community. Our dedicated team of 20 keeps the course in impeccable shape. In an article in Links magazine, readers learn about the changes in the course from the front nine to the back—beginning with a more open feel set against native grasses, then progressing to a tree-lined design “with greens cut into hillsides, downhill tee shots, and small streams wandering into play.”

Exceptional Care for Your Horses
When you’re looking for a private community with five-star treatment for your horses, our Equestrian Center exceeds expectations. Our members describe the attention given to their horses as top quality; they are equally impressed with the personalized riding programs our team of professionals creates. Our Center is a horse paradise, with 30 stalls, 40 acres of highland pastures and paddocks, 140 acres of riding preserve and still more nature trails to discover. 

Luxury Amenities 

Our community is home to a private, 4,600-foot on-premise airport for our members that easily accommodates private and corporate aircraft. Members look forward to gourmet dining and social gatherings at our 50,000 sq. foot Clubhouse, and Elk River is geared towards an active lifestyle with Har-Tru tennis courts, a pool and wellness complex, fly-fishing and neighborhood parks and trails. 

We’re proud of our history and look forward to learning more about your list of private community considerations. Request more information online or contact us at 828.898.9773.
