The NC Smokies is known for our winter sports: Skiing, snowshoeing, tubing, and even golfing. Yes, golfing! Just because there’s snow on the ground doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy mountain golf in the Smokies. Explore some of the incredible golf courses Waynesville has to offer. Book your tee times and lodging, and golf to your heart’s content at these two courses, open year-round.

Laurel Ridge Country Club

Head over to Laurel Ridge Country Club to get in eighteen holes while enjoying panoramic mountain views at this all-inclusive mountain golf getaway. Golf is available Tuesday through Sunday on this par 72 championship course. Winter temps are usually in the 40s-50s so be sure to layer—or don’t so that you’ll have a good excuse to pick up something nice in the pro-shop. If you work up an appetite between bogeys, grab a quick bite at the Turn Window on the 10th tee.

One of the best parts of the Country Club is that it comes complete with two beautiful lodgings on-site, The Hideaway at Laurel Ridge or The Inn on the Green. After a long day of perfecting your swing, retire to one of these conveniently located accommodations or one of our other unique and cozy stays. End up really loving golf at Laurel Ridge? Memberships are also available for unlimited golfing year-round.
