"Seeking a second placed to hang your visor - with golf in your backyard?" Joe Passov writes in Golf Magazine that the private Grandfather Golf and Country Club offers “a gorgeous 7,021- yard course through pine forest, laurel and rhododendron, backdropped by mountains. Course improvements, a high end fitness center and refinements to its cool Art Loft keep this community vibrant.”

The granddaddy of North Carolina golf courses is how The Palm Beach Daily News described Grandfather Golf & Country Club in Linville, NC.

"The beauty of the setting is because each hole is a refuge unto itself, with no other fairway in sight, no two holes playing alike and mountain peaks backdrop many of the greens," said HotLinks digital magazine.

“Beachfront scenery with mountain views – it was the best of both worlds,” said The Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “One of the best golf courses in the South, each hole is concealed from the next by screens of bright pink rhododendron and tall hemlock trees.”

O’Henry, Pine Straw and Salt Magazines all devoted three pages to Grandfather Golf & Country Club in an essay by writer Lee Pace who pointed out that the evolution of the golf course “took quite a leap of faith. That it would be lined with vacation homes tucked deep into the forests along the fairways, that there would be a comfortable clubhouse offering the best regional cuisine to the members of this pie-in-the-sky club took true ambition and vision.”

We ask, 'Is it really important to drive a thousand miles to go to Grandfather?' Once we drive across that dam we know that we belong here, we need to be here, it's gonna be a great year. That's happened for 14 years.

We even have a place for the dogs to play. We sometimes bring a bottle of wine, have a drink together and we've met so many people because of coming down here with the dogs.

If I could pick three things that really define Grandfather I would say: natural beauty, fun activities, and community.

My favorite amenity at Grandfather would have to be the Art Loft. I really enjoy spending time there with other people. We have great instruction and great classes.

We have people from all over. Those friendships actually go year round and we'll visit each other in the off season.

Grandfather's beach pavilion is such a paradise. First and foremost there's great food, including a wood burning oven where pizza is made. There are cornhole tournaments, volleyball, boating, sailing, the list goes on and on.
