Last week we wrote a bit about some of the top rated golf courses in the state of North Carolina. Some of our readers emailed me about the fact that most of the top rated courses were not available for the public to play on. That’s only about half true as many of the best courses in the state allow guest and public play, even if it IS at a premium.
One of our readers suggested Sapphire National Golf Club as a course that we should feature since it is open to the public AND offers greens fees seasonally from $55-$99.
You asked, we delivered…
They offer great stay and play packages that can accommodate you and provide a round of golf from $99 per person, per night. (See several deals at the bottom of this story!)
THE SCENIC BEAUTY OF THE HIGHLANDS OF NORTH CAROLINA…
One of the most beautiful golf photos of seen in a while was taken a few years ago at Sapphire National. The photo has been used to promote Cashiers, The Highlands and everything from hotels to local tourism as it is perhaps one of the prettiest views from a golf course that you’ll ever see. The photographer is unknown to us, so if you guys know who shot this awesome shot let us know as we’d certainly love to give them credit.
Sapphire National Golf Club is conveniently located in the Sapphire Valley and Cashiers Plateau Resort area. The club boasts premier playing conditions, tranquil mountain views and dramatic elevation changes.
Sapphire National Golf Club is the only golf course in the Highlands, Cashiers, and Sapphire region that is open to the public. The are the proud recipient of the prestigious 4 ½ star golf course rating from Golf Digest and the golf course also recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation.
