About Biltmore Forest Country Club

Biltmore Forest Country Club, is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Asheville, North Carolina.

Gloria Vanderbilt wanted to play golf near her home at the historic Biltmore House in the early 1920s and asked famed designer Donald Ross to construct 18 holes. The result is this classic, old-style layout carved out of the middle of the upscale Biltmore Forest community, just minutes from downtown Asheville in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Host of the 1999 U.S. Women’s Amateur, the course is distinguished by tree-lined fairways that demand accuracy over sheer distance. The official opening ceremonies were held on the Fourth of July, 1922.

In 1940, the club executed a 10 year lease with the Biltmore Company at $10,000 per year, with the option to buy the club for $200,000. In 1948, the club exercised the option and issued $175,000 in 30 year 5% bonds to the Biltmore Company thereby becoming a member owned, private club.

The club has undergone many changes and renovations over the years with the most recent being a 2.5 million dollar restoration of the golf course and an 8.5 million dollar restoration of the clubhouse. Both projects had as their mission to restore the club’s facilities back to its original 1922 splendor.

Biltmore Forest Country Club continues to be a by-invitation, member owned, private club. It has achieved Platinum status placing it among the top 10% of all private clubs in North America. The staff and membership are proud to be part of Biltmore’s history and fine traditions.

Biltmore Forest Country Club measures 6,606 yards from the back tees and plays to a par of 72 . The course rating is 72.2 and the slope rating is 135.
