Championship Golf

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 Hallmark 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. Together, this top-rated course and inviting Clubhouse are an integral part of the Trillium lifestyle and the heart of a warm, welcoming community.



PGA Tour Design

Inspired by the panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, course designer and PGA Senior Tour Player Morris Hatalsky created an award-winning 18-hole championship course that meanders through mountain laurels and indigenous hardwoods as the dramatic elevation changes bring fresh challenges at every hole.
