Get ready to elevate your golf game and create unforgettable memories with your closest buddies. Look no further than Rumbling Bald—a golfer’s paradise nestled in the heart of the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains. Rumbling Bald is home to 36 holes of the finest golf in North Carolina. You’ll find not just one, but two championship golf courses that promise exceptional golf. Our Bald Mountain and Apple Valley courses wind through our property and act as a connective feature of our community. Enjoy sweeping views of the mountains and lake as you tee off and get to know our renowned courses. There’s no such thing as a bad day on the golf course and that’s especially true here.

Apple Valley Golf Course

Apple Valley is the rarest of layouts. Routed through the Blue Ridge foothills surrounding scenic Lake Lure, this course is everything you want in a Western North Carolina mountain setting. Golf course architect Dan Maples, son of famed Ellis Maples, designed Apple Valley with the vast majority of holes playing either level or downhill. Stretching to 6,800 yards from the tips, it has hosted numerous championships and tournaments. With five sets of tees starting at 4,617 yards and subtle green complexes with gently undulating greens, Apple Valley is also eminently playable.

Bald Mountain Golf Course

Rated one of the top courses in North Carolina by Golf Channel’s Golf Advisor, Bald Mountain was designed by George Cobb (architect of the par-3 course at Augusta National) protégé W.B. Lewis. Checking in at just over 6,300 yards, it is one of the only courses in the region featuring five par 3s and five par 5s. That includes both an opening and closing three-shotter, the 496-yard first hole, and 479-yard 18th. Bald Mountain is the ideal complement to Apple Valley offering a decidedly different, yet unforgettable golf experience. Learn more here: https://rumblingbald.com/bald-mountain-golf-course/


Tee Off in Style with Unparalleled Views and Indelible Memories

Picture this: pristine fairways, panoramic mountain vistas, and the tranquil waters of Lake Lure as your backdrop. At Rumbling Bald, every day on the golf course is a masterpiece of natural beauty waiting to be discovered. Whether you’re a pro or just starting out, our courses are meticulously designed to challenge and inspire golfers of all skill levels, no matter the season. In the winter months, our golf maintenance team works diligently to enhance the courses for the upcoming season.

“We have been able to take some of our mountain terrain and start to carve out a more playable set of courses. Purchasing new machinery and adding to our staff have given us the tools we need to attack some of the often neglected areas of golf courses,” detailed Adam Bowles, Director of Golf at Rumbling Bald. “We have been working hard this off-season to continue to add to the experience of playing these two very different, but very fun golf courses. That’s just the outside. The inside of each pro shop has seen a major renovation with new paint, flooring, televisions, and displays that will now truly reflect the vision of what we are trying to accomplish with our merchandise selection.”


Celebrate with Friends

Golf is more than just a game—it’s a chance to connect with friends, celebrate victories, and create lasting memories. Whether you’re planning a tournament, organizing a large group outing, or simply hitting the links with your closest friends, Rumbling Bald provides the perfect setting for camaraderie and fun.

“I want to make sure that each group, large or small, is treated with care and attention,” stated Bowles. “Coming to a place like Rumbling Bald, with two courses and with an expansive property, we want everyone to feel like they are in a small town with friendly faces. Having two really great golf courses, that are filled with challenge to all golfers, is the backbone of the community. Each golf group that comes here can surely see that we are taking a more direct approach to upgrade our facilities and give people something new to see even if they have been coming for years.”
