The Mount Mitchell Golf Club golf course first opened for play in 1975. England's Frederick W. Hawtree designed the eighteen holes. The only other American course by this English golf architect is New Jersey's Links Golf Club. However, throughout the British Isles and on the European continent he was one of the most respected figures in golf course architecture during the second half of the 20th century, designing or remodeling, in partnership with his father and son, more than 300 courses throughout the world, including Royal Birkdale, near Liverpool, where the British Open is played periodically.

I played during the week and good price for the course. The greens were not the best I played at this course. It was not cut or rolled. But I love this course. Best scenery. $88 on weekends are little high.
