Olde Beau GC

Since its grand opening in the fall of 1991, the golf course at Olde Beau has become the focus of reviews from players and publications alike. It was recently named one of the "Top 50 Development Courses in the Southeast" by GOLFWEEK magazine, and PGA Pro Curtis Strange has said that Olde Beau is "one of the greatest mountain courses ever built." The original developer, Billy Satterfield, named Olde Beau in honor of his faithful bulldog friend and constant companion.

Olde Beau's design, which returns to traditional flat greens with the absence of "blind shots" to the green, makes more than 1,500 feet in elevation changes with the result being a par 72 that measures 6,710 yards from the tips, 6,237 from the middle and 5,652 from the front tees.

The greens are regulation bent grass and the fairways and roughs are a rich blend of bluegrass. The course is forever ablaze with hillsides of wild flowers, mountain laurel and rhododendron. To play Olde Beau is to feel the mountain as well. With the emerald green fairways overlooking an ever changing palette of color on the trees, it seems as though you're playing golf on top of the world!
