Hole #12 at Laurel Ridge

This private, long-established country club has been a tradition in the Waynesville area for generations.  Its rustic clubhouse has kept up with the times and offers a full array of services. “Complex” best describes the holes at Laurel Ridge.  Each hole brings a unique and different dimension.  While the course sits along a hillside, it still has considerable elevation change, water on a few holes, several holes with blind shots, and even rocks in a fairway.  Greens are very touchy!  The finishing holes on each nine truly test one’s course management with totally blind shots to narrow fairways and then water to carry to the green.  The course is very well maintained with picturesque holes winding through woodlands, hills and well setback homes making for a delightful yet testing day of golf.  It is fun to sit in the Clubhouse over lunch and watch groups come in on the ninth and eighteenth holes.  The Stay and Play accommodations are new and extremely well-appointed.
From the tips it is 6904 with a course rating of 72.2 and slope of 142 with six sets of tees.
