Lake Toxaway Country Club Golf Course
The $9 million renovated course re-opened on August 20, 2008, and was designed by architect Kris W. Spence. This 18 hole course has a par of 71 & measures approximately 6,418 yards. The design takes advantage of the topography & breathtaking views of the mountains & Lake Toxaway. It is fun & challenging for golfers of all skill levels.
Kris Spence took ample time walking the previous course from the 1960's, taking into account the natural setting & poteintial angles of play. "Everywhere you look there's dramatic scenery, from mountains with rock outcroppings to stunning lake waters. There's even a waterfall halfway up the mountain behind the fifth green,"
The ninth hole has a view of Lake Toxaway. "The back nine features more rises and falls, playing up to a plateau and back down again. The back side is also more secluded, favoring accuracy over distance. After the 17th green, there's a 100-foot climb to the tee at No. 18. From there golfers are exposed to a panoramic view of the mountains and lake, before hitting downhill to a challenging par-5 closing hole." (quoted from Lake Toxaway Country Club's website.)
Situated next to Pisgah Forest & Gorges State Park, you'll know you are playing on one of the finest golf courses in the region.

Master course architect Kris Spence finessed the course to make it a premier golf experience winding through beautiful mountain terrain. The course features inviting fairways, dramatic elevation changes and Augusta-style approaches that demand pinpoint accuracy. When you approach this course, you'll realize you're about to experience the majesty of golf the way it should be played. With respect... With strategy... With grace...
