Unquestionably one of the most beautiful mountain golf courses, the Elk River Club was established in 1982 with the lofty goal of becoming a luxury gated community providing stately homes featuring contemporary Mountain-style architecture in a tranquil, natural setting. Club members even had the benefits of arriving by air as one of the few fly in communities in North Carolina. The welcoming development works hard to provide ample social opportunities to further foster the sense of camaraderie and friendliness that truly flourishes.
