Wolf Laurel Country Club

Set atop the Blue Ridge Mountains, the course at Wolf Laurel Country Club is the highest east of the Mississippi River. It is also in the heart of the gated community of Wolf Laurel Resort. But, just like all the friendly people of the county, the private course is open to visitors who contact the golf pro for a tee time. This challenging mountain top 18-hole course has elevations from 3600 to around 5000 feet and so it is cool enough to golf in the heat of the summer. Thirteen of the tees are elevated and fairways drop as much as 300 feet from tee to green.  Find out more
