  • My husband and I have called Olde Beau home for 24 years. Wonderful restaurant, beautiful golf corse, the back nine is a real challenge. Views from many Tee boxes are breathtaking.  more »
  • If they would reinvest in the cart paths and some new Club Cars, this would be a 5! I love this course and routinely bring new people to the area to play here. Back 9 is really tough and is a shot mak...  more »

  • Great mountain course. So much scenery and beauty, its rediculous. This course will test your game your nerves and your precision. The staff is excellent and the course is in fantastic shape every time we go. From #1 to #18 it is golf bliss and you will not be disappointed. Go and enjoy!!
  • Very nice course, great views over the mountain tops.
  • Very disappointed! I've been around golf courses for 35 years and have been playing for over 25 years. I've been told for years that I had to play Olde Beau. "You'll love it" and "it may be the best course you've ever played" were the most common responses I received. After this past weekend, I will have to say Olde Beau is a one and done for me. We get to the pro shop and there's a sign that's 8x11 that tells us that #17 is closed for 3 weeks. Closed? That's the signature hole! Why did no one tell us this prior to our arrival when we booked our trip in July? The staff was great and very cordial minus the man in the pro shop Sunday morning. I'll get back to him. From the head pro(Steve Edwards), to the gentleman that greeted me in lodging when I went to pick my key up, all the way to the gentleman who was just hanging out in the pro shop; they were all very friendly and helpful. I walked out on the balcony of the villa I was staying in and saw the beauty of the NC mountains sitting on top of the golf course I would play with a couple of friends of mine for the next 2 days. We teed off at noon on Saturday and the weather was perfect. From the slightly elevated tee box, the course looked great. We get to the fairway and saw a lot of clovers in the fairway which is a no no, especially for a course that charges $65 on the weekend with a straight face and has a reputation like Olde Beau does. We get on the green and they rolled pretty true but there were black spots a plenty which comes from overseeding. So on the first hole we have an overseeded green and a clover filled fairway. Maybe it's just one hole. We'll see. Nope. The entire course was this way. Some greens were better than others and some were actually in good shape but clover filled fairways that are 3-4 different colors in a 20 yard radius is unacceptable, especially for the geography of this course. Needless to say, after our round Saturday, we were a little dejected when we went back to our room. Sunday is a new day so we showed up at 8:15 for our tee time and my buddies went in to square away our round. They let the different gentleman know that our time was 8:30 and they were told it was $65. They told the gentleman that I had made arrangements with Steve Edwards of a cheaper price because we stayed in a villa for the weekend. They were then told "That's not true. We don't charge anyone that price. It's $65." The ever so polite gentleman was also told that "we paid the same price yesterday and the head pro was here and charged us that". "The only way we would even think of charging someone that is if you had 48+ people playing in a group. Do you have 48 people coming in behind you?" Needless to say, my friends just walked out and waited on me to provide the email exchange between the head pro and myself 2 months earlier. When he asked me for the email, I handed it to him. He appeared to dissect every word from top to bottom looking for a loophole to keep him from following what the head pro had agreed to charge us. After realizing he was wrong and probably embarrassed for his behavior, he asked me if he could keep the email so he could discuss it with Steve. At that point, I could only laugh, smile, and turn to walk out to hopefully enjoy my last round at OB. Same course on Sunday except for when we had to wait for 30 minutes on #7 to keep from getting shredded by the sprinkler system. Turn the sprinklers on in the morning before people tee off. A man went to mow and rolls the greens Sunday morning but never moved the pins. That's either lazy or irresponsible. Also, the groundskeeper on #9 emptied out upwards of 20 gallons of water from his hose in 1 area behind the green while being consumed with his phone call. Look at the course sir. You need to drop the call and spread that water around. I didn't come here to look at the views more than I came to play golf. Minus Steve in the Pro Shop and the gentleman I got our room key from, it was definitely a trip that was marred in disappointment. I hope they fix this place and make it what it apparently used to be.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Very difficult from the tips, especially the first time playing the course, as there are a lot of blind shots. The views are fantastic, the course is in great shape, Love the layout. Can't wait to come back and play again, knowing the course a little better. Highly recommend going, especially in October during peak fall color. You'll spend more time taking pictures and breathing in the rich mountain air than golfing.
  • My family used the clubhouse as the venue for my daughter's wedding reception in the month of December. Tommy and the staff was wonderful to work with. The place was decorated so beautifully for Christmas. We only had to decorate the tables and add a little personal touch. The food was delicious and the wait staff was spot on.
