Old Edwards Club is part of the Forbes Four-Star Old Edwards Inn and Spa in Highlands, North Carolina. It is a members-only club that is also accessible by guests of Old Edwards Inn and Spa and 200 Main by Old Edwards. In addition to a Tom Jackson sculpted course, Old Edwards Club features a full clubhouse with The Grill Room, full bar, chimney terrace, fitness center and ladies and mens lounges. Also on property are clay tennis courts and an outdoor heated mineral pool.

The course itself is an architectural marvel with inspiring views from elevated tees and greens cascading along the Eastern Continental Divide. Players of all levels enjoy perfect conditioning, warm southern hospitality and superb mountain golf.

Jackson designed the course from the natural topography of the mountain plateau, providing a captivating 18-hole design with an intriguing dual personality. The front side lulls you into a serene mountain valley of greenery and meandering streams. As you approach the turn, a 250 foot ascent delivers you to the 10th tee giving you the feeling of being on top of the world. The next three holes take you around one of the highest ridges of golf on the east coast. Your final descent toward the clubhouse takes you alongside a shear granite cliff on the right-hand side of number 18.

Much like the resort the service here is second to none. The course is really stunning. It laces its way through the mountains and the scenery is truly breathtaking. The greens are hard and fast, but the course is very fair. I will recommend this to every golf enthusiast I know.

A gorgeous sunday afternoon made this setting perfect, however, very slow service. We had a simple order and seemed to wait forever to get our food. Our server, while friendly, seemed inefficient and scattered. Our food tasted good, but we didnt have anything complex. sandwiches and salads.

The golf course is a very fun course to play with a range of topography and hazards. It is also very well maintained. And the service is top notch. They all go out of their way to be helpful. And the views are just spectacular. And in the summer the weather was just perfect - in the mountains, away from... More

From the minute you pull into the bag drop area until you depart, there are friendly young employees to take care of whatever you might need. The course itself really consists of two very different sides. The front nine gives some elevation changes and allows one to enjoy the scenery. The second nine is in the mountainside and has dramatic... More

This is one of the most beautiful golf courses in the area. We were there as part of a wedding group and were treated as if we were long time members. The golf staff is professional and accommodating. We loved it!
