Dining at Grandfather Golf & Country Club


Under the direction of Executive Chef, Will Hicks, an on-site wine director and exceptional culinary and service staff, any and every occasion is sure to be a memorable treat.

Exquisitely Tasteful

Reminiscent of a gracious mountain lodge, the first impression is a welcoming one. The architectural design utilizes wood selections and stones indigenous to the Western North Carolina area. The interior is well appointed with English and Scottish antiques throughout. The Clubhouse offers both upscale and casual dining options, lounge, reception area, great room, Golf Shop, card room and covered deck. Several intimate seating areas are situated around fireplaces with spectacular views of the lake. Cuisine varies from exquisite gourmet, to light and healthy, to short-order selections from the Beach Pavilion Snack Bar. Every meal is a special event in its own unique way. 

Dining Options Include 

MacRae: The Chef’s seasonal dinner and weekend menu offer everything from delightful pasta and fresh seafood to center-cut prime ribeye. Enjoy a spectacular four-course meal paired with the perfect wine in a comfortably formal setting.
