Featured Golf Course Review:
Mount Mitchell Golf Club -- Great Public Course
Review by: Anonymous Probably the nicest public course in the North Carolina mountains. Beautifully maintained fairway grass. Scenic. Mostly flat, in the S. Toe River valley, with the Black Mountain range and Mt. Mitchell in the background. Some private residential subdivisions around the course do not intrude unattractively. Not a terribly difficult course if you hit it straight. If you don't, you'll be in for a tough day. Holes 12, 13 and 14, a par 5 five followed by two long, tough par 4's, the last one crossed by the S. Toe River, are a real challenge. Greens moderate speed. Carts required during busy weekend periods and carts must be kept on cart paths at all times. Pull carts (trolleys) not permitted. Play can be fairly slow when course is crowded on the weekends. Low key, friendly owners and staff. Green fees top out in the high $70 range (2003-2004).

Flag Tree Golf Course -- Flagtree lost it's best and only Pro.
Review by: novice golfer Flagtree is a challenging course with plenty of sand traps, and beautiful water to cross. My favorite hole is the 10th, a long par 5, dogleg to the left with traps fronting the green and a pond to the right. The most difficult is the par 4 12th, where a long drive is required before you can take a second shot to the green over a large pond. The green has a 45 degree slope from the back down to the front. I have played this course for over 30 years. It was transformed into a great golf course with the addition of Pro, Phil Wallace, several years ago. He made more improvements to the course in a few short years, than the owner Bill Hayes had done in 30 years prior. Unfortunately, Mr. Hayes and Pro Wallace could not come to reasonable terms in the buy-out and Pro Wallace has moved on to another course. If the past is repeated, this course will soon fall victim to neglect. Too bad for a fun course layout.
