Cashiers’ Own Wade Hampton and Mountaintop Golf Courses Make the Lists of Top 100 Golf Courses in the World 2011 and Golfweek’s Best Residential Courses 2011

The word is out – the world is finally discovering that Cashiers, North Carolina is filled with all sorts of hidden gems! Already well-known for our temperate year-round climates, breath-taking mountain views, eclectic collection of shops and restaurants, and unique brand of Southern Hospitality – what many are now learning is that our golf courses rank up there with some of the finest in the nation!

Just last week, a ranking site out of the United Kingdom – Top 100 Golf Courses of the World –  released their list for 2011. Their original shortlist consisted of 216 courses from countries all over the world, including The United States of America, Australia, England, Ireland, Scotland, New Zealand, Canada, France and more. In the end, New Jersey’s famed Pine Valley Golf Club walked away with top honors, the renowned Augusta National in Georgia ranked #3, and Cashiers’ own Wade Hampton Golf Club was recognized among the best courses in the world at a highly respectable #52.

Wade Hampton has been honored once again by the recent release of Golfweek Magazine’s Best Residential Courses earlier this month. Wade Hampton Golf Club was listed as #3 in a list consisting of 100 national courses stretching from Kiawah Island, South Carolina in the East all the way to Carmel Valley, California in the West. Topping the list is another highly esteemed Cashiers golf course – Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club – at #1!

Whether you’re a scratch golfer or an avid hacker, Silver Creek Real Estate Group welcomes the opportunity to introduce you to these two fine communities in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. 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. 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 to residents and club members 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.

On the other hand, a relatively new kid on the block – Mountaintop Golf & Lake Club – is quickly growing in popularity and reputation as one of the most superb communities the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau has to offer.  Perched high atop a beautiful expanse of the Blue Ridge Mountains at 4,000 feet above sea level, Mountaintop offers its residents some of the most stunning views in the region. Set upon a sprawling 731 acres, the developer – Discovery Land Company – has designed a luxury mountain retreat community of just 251 estate lots and 75 cabins and lodges peppered about the property. Lots range in size from one-half acre to five acres, providing residents with the peace and quiet that has become a trademark of luxury mountain living. Mountaintop also offers a Tom Fazio-designed golf course that is every bit as challenging as it is breathtaking. Other activities available to residents of Mountaintop include water sports at the private Lake Club on nearby Lake Glenville, horseback riding, fly fishing,hiking or simply relaxing while being pampered at Mountaintop’s world-class spa.
