North Carolina Mountain Wedding Venues, Golf & Fine Dining featured on “Road Trippin” in Waynesville NC

Laurel Ridge Country Club was recently featured on WLOS-TV13’s (local ABC affiliate in the Asheville, NC Mountains) special summer series “Road Trippin’” focusing on Laurel Ridge’s unique North Carolina Mountain Wedding Venues, championship golf in North Carolina mountains & fine dining.

 Mountain  Golf At It’s Finest

The video segment (link below) showcases the unique niche that Laurel Ridge fills to golf North Carolina mountain style.  Not only does it demonstrate the challenging and meticulously groomed golf course, but it also highlights the closeness of the club to towns and cities in the area. Despite this closeness, the golf course provides isolation so that you can enjoy the solitude of the golf game and the beauty that only NC Mountain golf can provide, while also occasionally running into other golfers for a brief, friendly banter about your game; then continuing your day of golf that gives you the feeling of truly “having a day away” on one of the best Mountain Golf Courses in North Carolina.  Come golf North Carolina mountains today!

NC Mountain Wedding Venues

The feature with WLOS-TV13 also focuses on the special events and destination weddings hosted at Laurel Ridge. This spring and summer has been busy with rehearsal dinners, indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies, and receptions.  Our staff of professionals make sure each event is filled with special memories in a backdrop that looks as if it were painted by one of the great art masters.

Many brides and grooms choose their NC mountain wedding ceremony to be held in Amber’s Arbor, the perfect, scenic spot for your outdoor wedding ceremony with the gorgeous pond full of koi and the beautiful greens of the golf course and NC Mountains in the background.   If an indoor ceremony is preferred, vows can be exchanged in front of the towering windows within the rustic yet elegant clubhouse, also featuring golf course views and a backdrop of the NC Mountains.  The clubhouse’s panoramic views, vaulted ceilings, rustic design, large fireplace and hardwood floors attract many brides and never fail to impress guests.

After the wedding ceremony, allow our staff of professionals to create the perfect ambiance for your NC mountain wedding reception, either in the beautiful Piedmont Room, the outdoor, open-air pavilion or one of our smaller banquet rooms. The staff  can provide customized Wedding Packages to fit any budget or size.   Whether the bride and groom choose a buffet or a plated meal for their reception dinner, our Chefs and event planner will work with you to pick out a menu of your choosing.   Some favorites from the Chef include local Mountain Trout, stuffed chicken breasts, prime rib, Parmesan salmon and fresh local produce. Following the symbolic cutting of the cake, a DJ can provide music for  guests to dance the night away.  When the day is complete, the happily married couple may leave surrounded by sparklers providing them with a fiery send off underneath the stars.  The beauty of Laurel Ridge Country Club, combined with the impeccable service and food, provides the perfect North Carolina mountain wedding venues.
