Golf - The mountains around Asheville with their scenic beauty and pleasant year-round climate provide a magnificent setting for a game of golf at one of the area's many public and private golf courses and country clubs. But the primary attractions to mountain golf are lush fairways, sprawling bent grass greens, cool breezes and a gently undulating terrain.

Four distinct seasons of play are a highlight of mountain golf. Spring play is popular from late March through May with cool temperatures and the bright colors of spring flowers. Summer offers cooler mountain temperatures than the rest of the humid southern summer, while autumn provides a spectacular display of leaves on the mountain slopes amid warm, sunny days. Winters are the greatest surprise since snows rarely cover the courses for more than a few days and the winter sun often brings daytime temperatures into the 40s and 50s.
