The Area – High Country – Blowing Rock NC
A lot of people associate the leisure pastime of golf with the village of Blowing Rock, and that is really no surprise. Golf in Blowing Rock has played a huge role in the establishment of the community as a resort vacation area for the rich and those seeking respite. The Blowing Rock Country Club began in 1941 and is one of the oldest golf clubs in the High Country region. It is currently the only area Golf Course in the town’s limits. Visitors that come to the High Country are always drawn to the large historic structure that formerly housed The Green Park Inn, and quickly take notice of the greens and fairways that surround the property. This Blowing Rock Golf Course is open to members only and, when the Inn was in operation, guests staying at the historic Blowing Rock Hotel were given access to this amazing spot to enjoy the game.
The Blowing Rock Golf course is a unique one that sits on the Eastern Continental Divide, a little less than 4,000 feet above sea level. Parts of the course are located in Watauga County and a few areas extend into Caldwell. In the warmer months of spring, summer, and fall, the sport is at its best due to the fantastic weather and gorgeous scenery that you will find all around. Golf here is a major draw for visitors coming to the area.
In addition to the Golf in Blowing Rock, there are other Courses in the High Country. Of course, there are the legendary Linville Golf Courses, and there are two great public Boone Golf Courses, as well. Read about them in the resources section on the Boone Attractions.
