Make This Summer Count For Your Kids at Laurel Ridge’s Summer Camps!

Your children, ages 6-13, can learn the fundamentals of golf & tennis during private & group instruction from our staff of professionals!  This exposure at an early age can develop into a lifelong passion!  You could even have the next superstar in training.

Each week of camp also includes swimming, backgammon, fun and educational programs plus so much more.

We will have two summer sports camps:

  • Camp I, June 24-28, 2019
  • Camp II, July 22-26, 2019
  • 10 am-3 pm daily
  • $225/week for members (includes lunch each day)
  • $300/week for non-members (includes lunch each day)

NEW FOR 2019!  On the last day of camp each week, we will have a Camp Finale and invite the parents/grandparents and siblings to see what our campers have learned.  On that day, families can also swim and have dinner in the pavilion (dinner is an additional cost)

Start their experience this summer at Laurel Ridge!  Download the 2019 Camp Brochure & Registration or email info@laurelridgegolf.com to sign up!

A Quest To Offer Cutting Edge Golf Products To Club Members

For over 30 years, I have attended the annual PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando each January, looking for new and exciting products to offer our club members in the Golf Shop.   This impressive show, known as the “Major of Golf Business”, encompasses nearly one million square feet of exhibit space, as over 1,000 companies sell their wares to some 40,000 representatives from the golf industry.  Besides delivering exciting products and announcements, the show serves to energize the golf industry each year.  Golf professionals and buyers uncover the newest in products, trends and technology to bring back to their clubs.

As our golf season at Laurel Ridge Country Club in Waynesville, NC gets underway this spring, stop by and see the newest apparel, shoes and accessories!  Our ladies are going to absolutely love the new bag line coming soon and the staff can’t wait to share our enthusiasm for this great game of golf!

LRCC MEMBER SUPERLATIVES

Laurel Ridge Country Club’s best asset is its members!  The kind of camaraderie and friendship found here is priceless, and it is why our members recommend the club to their friends and colleagues so often.

We are featured on Bustld of Asheville!

Bustld of Asheville also fell in love the with fantastic scenery our venue gave for breathtaking photography that Inspired Life was able to snag! We are thrilled to be featured on Bustld, and thankful for the professional work of Inspired Life Photography that showed our venue (and this amazing couple) exactly how it is- naturally gorgeous.

The Snow came to Laurel Ridge!

As many of our local members & guests experienced, the December snow that came early this year, covered our area with a heavy, white, and glistening blanket. A wonderful backdrop for photography!

  
We enjoyed the beauty of the snow, but the weight of it took down many power lines and trees. Warmer day time temperatures led to melting, and rapid temperature drops eventually made this heaping water refreeze to the roadways and parking areas.

  

Our crews jumped in to help, by removing downed limbs, plowing the excess snow and allowing sunlight to get to the concrete. The forecast is in our favor, with consistent warmer temperatures for the days ahead and plenty of sunshine to melt away the threat of freeze. We enjoyed the beauty of it all, but are happy to getting things back to normal as this particular snow “derailed” many of us in WNC!

 

Laurel Ridge is OPEN today, and you can still catch some great snow scenery on the greens! Serving lunch today from 11:30-2:30, we would love to see you and give you a place to alleviate your “cabin fever”.
