Tom Fazio’s Mountain Masterpiece

Designed by Tom Fazio, our championship course offers breathtaking mountain golf that, as Tom likes to say, "looks hard but plays easy." Male and female golfers of every skill level enjoy playing Champion Hills, which offers five sets of tees and 14 downhill holes. And unlike many mountain courses, we're open year-round, with spectacular vistas throughout the course. Golf Digest Magazine recently ranked Champion Hills among the top 10 private courses in North Carolina and the #1 year-round course in Western North Carolina.

Fazio’s Summer Home Course
Tom recalls that when he first saw the Champion Hills site, he fell in love with its “beauty, uniqueness, scale and unusual character.” He realized that the dramatic rise and fall of the mountain terrain would naturally dictate the par on each hole. His design was guided by the land: each fairway sitting in its own valley, with homes tucked discreetly into the woods along the hillsides. Tom loved the course so much that it became his family’s summer home course and he still visits frequently. He also hosts a charity golf tournament at Champion Hills each year for the local Boys and Girls Club with the assistance of the members.
