Springdale at Cold Mountain is a true North Carolina mountain golf resort boasting a 6,865-yard course certain to challenge every club in your bag... and possibly your mental health too. The Springdale golf course is home to 50-year-old Hemlocks that line the fairways and the infamous hole #13 called the "spasm". The front nine holes meander through the valley bordering the East Fork of the Pigeon River and mountains such as Sugar Top and Rocky Face, allowing golfers to begin their round with soft movements on each hole and find your swing. The back nine holes will take you up the mountain slopes and will present a challenge for even the best golfers.
"Mother Nature" was the architect and designer of Springdale and it is our mission to keep this phenomenal layout natural to the surrounding environment. Don't be intimidated by the mountain setting though. Thanks to five sets of tees, golfers of all ages and skill levels can experience and enjoy Springdale.
The picturesque back nine ascends into the mountains to elevations of 3,200 feet and offers breathtaking views of our namesake, Cold Mountain. Prepare for a love/hate relationship with lucky Hole Number 13, "The Springdale Spasm." This 476-yard par-4 demands a strong tee shot and a "thread the needle" approach to an elevated green protected by a bunker to the right and a creek on the left. Golf doesn't get much better than this. Stunning views of North Carolina's famed big guys, Cold Mountain and Mt. Pisgah, along with challenging holes keep golfers coming back for more.
