Here at High Meadows Golf & Country Club, we are excited to announce a renovation of our bunkers and tees on each of the course’s 18 holes. For more than 50 years, players have enjoyed the beauty and playability of the course designed by George Cobb, nestled in the mountains of the Blue Ridge Parkway with beautiful views from each tee. It is a testament to the design and the maintenance over the years that this is the first time major renovations have been undertaken. This project, in partnership with well-renowned golf course architect Bill Bergin, will improve the playability of the High Meadows course even further. By adding more options for tees and building bunkers with the latest drainage and designs, the course will have more flexibility and a more consistent playing surface.
See David Droschak's article about updates at High Meadows featured in the latest issues of Triad Golf Today and Triangle Golf Today- newspapers that have covered golf news in central and western North Carolina since 1994.
Benefits for Golfers:
• Improved drainage in bunkers creates more consistent playing conditions
• Larger tees creates more space to move tee markers for greater flexibility in shot placement
• Each hole will have six tee boxes, giving more options for golfers to play
• Newly leveled tees provide a level spot for a great drive
