I am hoping to play the new nine-hole course at Bear Lake Reserve, sited on the top of the mountain at the four-year old community near Sylva, NC.
I am putting together a five-day trip to the mountains of western North Carolina for the first week in September. My plans are to visit a few golf communities within an hour or so south of Asheville, an arc roughly from the Rutherfordton/Lake Lure area to Waynesville/Sylva and including the Hendersonville/Flat Rock area. Candidates on the list include Bright's Creek, Balsam Preserve, Cummings Cove, Queens Gap (Nicklaus golf course under construction) and possibly a round of golf at the Grove Park Inn on its famed Donald Ross course. If time permits, I might make a stop to play a quick round at Bear Lake Reserve, whose stunning nine-hole course opened a few days after my visit in June.
