Golf & Tennis


The Boone Area offers golf for players of every skill level - just check out a copy of our brand new Boone Area Great Golf Guide by nationally published local golf writer Tom McAuliffe.

The enticing options range from a Par 3 course, to championship length, public layouts, and on to nationally-renowned private resort courses (where access is as easy as checking in to the lodge or a condo!).

Best of all, when the "sunny South" is baking in summer temperatures, the invigoratingly cool climate of the High Country makes any round of golf great (even if your score isn't quite up to par!). The Boone Area's options are plentiful-check out our Golf Guide - and that includes early and late season play when spring explodes along the fairways and the reflections of neon fall color make even the water hazards appealing.
