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 to sign up!

Thankful for Thanksgiving at Laurel Ridge Country Club

As millions of Americans prepared to celebrate a traditional Thanksgiving meal with family and friends, the staff at Laurel Ridge busily prepared for what would become a record-breaking Thanksgiving event at the club.  The total number of reservations exceeded 400 as our team worked diligently to create the ideal setting and tastes for those who would entrust their holiday meal to us.  From the fold of the napkin to the made-from-scratch offerings on the abundant buffet, our Chefs, along with the management, events and dining staff, had the joy of serving many Laurel Ridge members and their families, as well as guests from the local community and those visiting our beautiful mountains.


Now that Thanksgiving is over and the last dish has been washed, we reflect back on what makes Thanksgiving such a special day here at Laurel Ridge Country Club. It’s a time when we are able to give of our time to show club members and the local community that we are thankful for them!  We relish the moments we were able to create through our warm and welcoming environment, impeccable service, and delectable traditional flavors.  When there is great food on the table and long-time friends and family to laugh with, unforgettable memories are made!


We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving as much as we enjoyed sharing ours with you!  We regret that some late reservations were not able to attend, so we invite all to share the holidays with us during our special Brunches each Sunday in December, and as we count down to the New Year with The Band Silver (all Sunday Brunches and New Year’s Eve event is Open to the Public)! Call to make a reservation! 828-452-0545 ext. 134.

A Fantastic College Game Day at LRCC is in the books!

A special Game Day menu was offered that featured some amazing wings, nachos, burgers, and local brews from 7Clans Brewery in Cherokee. Chef even prepared kid-friendly options for our youngest members that refueled them for the rest of their Game Day experience!

The little ones among us spent their energy playing exciting classic games such as wooden lifesize connect-4, yard bowling,  giant Jenga, football, 4 square, giant UNO, and seasonal crafts. We believe most of them will be sleeping well this evening, that’s for certain! Members please note- seasonal crafts and table top games are available for your children during brunch service, lunch, or dinner. Request them from your host or server when you are being seated. LRCC loves kids!

Laurel Ridge Country Club family football

After some of the group dwindled down, we had to snap a photo before the night got away from us.  THANK YOU to all the members who attended and brought friends out to our College Football Game Day at LRCC ! We had a fantastic time viewing the WCU Catamounts play against the UNC Tarheels  on the big screen in the Pavilion. The weather cooperated and we were able to enjoy sunshine, mild temperatures, and great company with other fellow members and guests.

Stay tuned for the next big Game Day event- perhaps College Football Semi Finals?!? Or the Super Bowl?!? Save the date and plan to bring your friends to Laurel Ridge- we would love to watch another game together!

A special “thanks” again to all who spent their Saturday evening at LRCC. We treasure nights like these and their new connections with fellow members developing into lasting memories with lifelong friends.
