"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
JOHN MUIR - Author
More than twenty years ago, Trillium began with the vision of being more than just a country club, but rather becoming that special place where families can come to grow and make unforgettable memories together.
That vision for Trillium is a reality. Today Trillium is a premier Club boasting the widest array of amenities on the Cashiers/Highlands plateau, long-range mountain and water views, the most family activities around and much, much more.

Play in Nature
The spectacular natural beauty that characterizes Trillium’s sophisticated golf course reminds us of why we play “The Old Game” in the first place. By combining natural elements with careful design and a traditional approach to the game of golf, Trillium Links is the centerpiece of the Trillium amenities.
When combined with the driving range and practice facility, it’s easy to see that Trillium Links offers a comprehensive range of golfing amenities unlike any other in the mountains of North Carolina. This top-rated course and inviting Clubhouse are integral to the Trillium lifestyle and the heart of a warm, welcoming community.
Get on the Water
The dramatic contrasts of the Blue Ridge Mountains soaring to breathtaking heights above a sparkling expanse of water that plunges to depths of over 100 feet make Lake Glenville a true mountain paradise. Rent a boat and cruise from Trillium’s docks to discover cascading waterfalls or a postcard sunset.
Hike or boat to sandy banks that line the shores, beckoning you to stop for some relaxing sunning and swimming. Water skiers and wake surfers will revel in the thrills of gliding over clear, deep mountain waters, and fishing enthusiasts will enjoy the bounty of bass, walleye, crappie, and trout.
Ready for dinner? Dine at The Landings, the only full-service restaurant on the lake.
TENNIS AND CROQUET
All the Courts
Our club boasts outdoor clay tennis courts, indoor clay tennis courts, outdoor hardcourt pickleball courts, and a croquet lawn. Our outdoor courts offer breathtaking views and fresh mountain air while you play. Our indoor clay courts provide a comfortable and climate-controlled environment for year-round play. And for those who enjoy a more relaxed and leisurely game, our croquet lawn is the perfect place to unwind and socialize with friends.
Our country club is dedicated to providing our members with exceptional facilities and experiences. Whether you’re a seasoned player or just starting, our courts offer various options for everyone to enjoy. So join us and experience the beauty and fun of our courts in the mountains
Explore the Mountains
As you hike through the lush forests and verdant valleys, you’ll discover nearly 200 hidden waterfalls that cascade over moss-covered rocks. The sound of the rushing water and the cool mist on your face will invigorate your senses and refresh your spirit.
As you climb higher, the views become even more awe-inspiring. From the mountain summits, you’ll see miles of rolling hills and valleys stretching out before you. The colors of the changing seasons make each hike a unique and unforgettable experience.
Best Streams in the State
The trout streams in the Blue Ridge, Appalachian & Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina host the best fishing streams in the state, with over 3000 miles of stream throughout the region, not to mention our own privately stocked stream and pond. In most of these trout streams and rivers, you can catch all three types of trout; brook trout, rainbow trout, and brown trout.
Amateurs and professionals alike have fished our waters, and numerous options are available for anglers of all levels. Beginners may wish to start with an introductory course by one of the region’s excellent fishing schools, while the more experienced may head out on their own or join one of the fishing expeditions hosted by experts and sponsored by one of the clubs or organizations.
Activities for All
The array of summer camps and programs make multi-generational memories that kids will want to share and create again and again and again. Trillium offers its young members a range of summer camps through Camp Trillium and Mountain Quest. In addition to summer camps, there are weekly events for families to participate in, like bingo, movie night, story time, swimming lessons, and more.
In today’s fast-paced culture, many who have achieved worldly success continue to search for a sense of significance, for some inner assurance that their life will have enduring meaning. We desire that families at Trillium find joy, support, and opportunities for continued growth along their life journey. The original vision of our founders, to offer families a community within which the whole person can be nourished, still guides us today. Serenity Chapel stands as a constant reminder of that vision and commitment.
Whether stopping at the Chapel for a time of quiet prayer and thanksgiving, attending a Sunday service or seminar, joining in a small group study, or simply ending a perfect mountain day around a campfire, we hope that all ages will find many significant ways in which to grow while here in God’s country.
