Apple Valley is the rarest of layouts. Routed through the Blue Ridge foothills surrounding scenic Lake Lure, this course is everything you want in a Western North Carolina mountain setting. Golf course architect Dan Maples, son of famed Ellis Maples, designed Apple Valley with the vast majority of holes playing either level or downhill. Stretching to 6,800 yards from the tips, it has hosted numerous championships and tournaments. With five sets of tees starting at 4,617 yards and subtle green complexes with gently undulating greens, Apple Valley is also eminently playable.
