Highlighted by sweeping mountain vistas and breathtaking topography, the 18-hole championship golf course at Lake Toxaway Country Club has long drawn rave reviews from members and their guests for its plush fairways and perfectly manicured Bentgrass greens. Golfers who appreciate those special moments where challenging shots and stunning visual elements come together to create a memorable golf experience are sure to fall in love with Lake Toxaway.
In 2008, a $9 million course renovation project led by noted architect Kris Spence elevated the golf experience at Lake Toxaway to a new level. No longer considered a quaint mountain golf course, the course’s new design provides for a truly unique and challenging experience that rivals any golf course in Western North Carolina.
"The renovations to the Lake Toxaway course have made it a fun and challenging test of golf. It's a golf course I look forward to playing while on vacation and one that can keep me sharp while away from the PGA Tour." -- Matt Kuchar, PGA Tour Superstar, 2016 Olympic Golf Bronze Medalist.

While providing a challenge to highly-skilled players, the course’s new design also manages to place an emphasis on playability for golfers of all ages and skill levels. Low handicappers will enjoy a test of their shot-making ability by avoiding well-placed hazards and navigating strategic “high-risk, high-reward” scoring opportunities, while beginners and families will appreciate the course’s wide fairways and generous bail out areas.
