High Hampton Inn and Country Club
If you can imagine playing golf in a velvet green park shadowed by two of the prettiest peaks in North Carolina Rock Mountain and Chimney Top Mountain -- thats the essence of High Hampton. The late George Cobb, a legendary golf architect who crafted more than 350 courses, designed the layout at High Hampton. It is part of the 1,400-acre grounds of the High Hampton Inn and amongst the most scenic golf courses in America.
The signature hole is the par-3 eighth. The green rests on a finger in a lake, overshadowed by the sheer rock cliff of Rock Mountain. Its easy to understand why Golf Digest named it one of Americas Great Golf Holes. Cobb once said of the course, I have yet to see a course designed by me or by others with greater natural beauty or one more enjoyable to play.
One of the oldest courses in the mountains, High Hampton plays at 6,012 yards from the back tees to bent grass greens. Amenities include a covered driving range and two putting greens. The club also hosts golf schools and tournaments. It is located in Cashiers.
