Wade Hampton Golf Club – Cashiers, North Carolina Golf Community
What Are You Waiting “FORE”?
Named for South Carolina’s Civil War Brigadier General, Governor and U.S. Senator Wade Hampton III (1818-1902), Wade Hampton Golf Club was built upon 600 acres of land parceled from the General’s own beloved mountain retreat, the historic High Hampton grounds near Cashiers in 1984. Now celebrating a quarter of a century as one of Western North Carolina’s most sought after luxury communities, Wade Hampton Golf Club features an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Tom Fazio. The Wade Hampton Course has received accolades since its inception, including a #1 ranking in GolfWeek Magazine for Best Residential Golf Course in 2009 and recognition as the highest ranked course in North Carolina in Golf Digest Magazine’s “America’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses” since 2007. In a state well-known for its golf courses, Wade Hampton was awarded a ranking of #14 of the Top 100 Golf Courses in North Carolina – beating out such legendary courses as The Grove Park Inn Course in Asheville, Bermuda Run Country Club at the heart of the state and Cape Fear Country Club at the coast. The course was also recently honored with a ranking of #54 of the Top 100 Courses in the World! Links Magazine calls Wade Hampton “A stroke of Fazio genius in an idyllic setting… an obvious work of art.” All Southern golf lovers should find a way to play this course – which is every bit as challenging as it is breathtaking.
In keeping with a Club of such high stature, the Wade Hampton clubhouse offers beautiful views of the golf course and Chimneytop Mountain, as well as world-class dining. Tennis, swimming, fishing and hiking throughout the beautiful natural setting that surrounds the course are just a few of the other activities available at Wade Hampton. Membership to this exclusive club is by invitation only. The residences that line the narrow lanes of Wade Hampton Golf Club under a canopy of trees rest on lots ranging from one quarter to over five acres in size, and vary from quaint mountain cottages to palatial estates. This stunning community will play host to this year’s Cashiers Designer ShowHouse – as a handful of talented professional interior designers descend upon Whisper Fade to create a visually striking home environment where hundreds of guests will come to take a peek at their work in late August-early September. Proceeds from this must-see annual event benefit the Cashiers Historical Society. It also offers a terrific opportunity for attendees to catch a glimpse of this incredible community.
