Anchored by its championship Donald Ross golf course and newly renovated clubhouse, our historic Blue Ridge Mountain country club is a beacon for active lifestyles in Asheville. Among the first hundred private clubs founded in America, the Country Club of Asheville was established in 1894 as Swannanoa Country Club. After several changes in location and name, the club attracted famed course architect Donald Ross to design the 6,638 yard par 71 professional track in 1928.
Full country club amenities include an Olympic - size swimming pool, brand-new fitness center, indoor and outdoor tennis facilities as well as children and teen rec rooms. Our attentive service is apparent in the fine cuisine our revered culinary team presents daily, not to mention their expertise in orchestrating special events.

Founded in 1929, RGA is the second oldest golf course in the Raleigh area and equally popular among senior, women and junior golfers. Comments John McConnell, “It gives (McConnell Golf) a great opportunity to help grow the game of golf for those who may not be club members or have a regular golf course to play."
The McConnell Golf values are reflected in the communities we build inside, and outside, club walls. The Footprints on the Green and McConnell Scholars programs are prime examples of our commitment to the future of golf.
