Designed by course architect George Cobb—who has lent his fairway-carving skills to more than 100 courses, including Augusta National—Cleghorn Plantation's 18-hole course surfs the emerald waves of the Smoky Mountain foothills across 6,819 yards of kempt terrain. Fragrant Carolina pines hug fairways throughout the round, providing a sense of constancy to diverse terrain that melds together steep inclines, flat valley floors, and holes that double as intergalactic wormholes. Clubbers must also contend with water hazards on eight holes, including on the demanding par 4 on hole 11, where tee shots must bisect a narrow tract of fairway beset on both sides by ominous waters. The club helps players prepare with expansive practice facilities, including a driving range with new practice balls and a station where players can leave disobedient clubs in timeout. Cleghorn Plantation's Manor House beckons to weary golfers with the elegant trappings of a restored plantation house originally built in 1837. The House's Southern-style cooking stems hunger's tide during classy date nights or get-togethers, and a bar and grill with 12 flat-screen TVs evokes a more laid-back ambiance for postround golfers or children famished from a day of synchronized parent summoning at the outdoor pool. Course at a Glance: * Designed by George Cobb * 18-hole, par 71 course * Length of 6,819 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 73.0 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 132 from the farthest tees * Four tee options

Golfers traversing Creek Golf Club's 6,625-yard course enjoy plateaued tee boxes and fairways lined with mature trees. The 18-hole course showcases smooth, diamond Zoysia grass greens that tightly swathe the terrain's parkland-style contours like skinny jeans on the Jolly Green Giant's hips.

Golf balls fall like hail from the skies above the Club's driving range, where synthetic mats facilitate practice during inclement weather and grass tees provide a natural lie for swing rehearsals. The range serves as the classroom for lessons with PGA professional Mike Byce, who assists those looking to add distance to their drives or transition from a conventional putter to a belly putter or a sawed-off curtain rod.

After a day at the links, guests can refuel at the Club's bar and grill, which serves burgers, salads, cold-cut sandwiches, and other classic eats.

When rock-climbing couple Christy and Scott Thrift got engaged, Christy was dangling off the side of Stone Mountain. The same adventurous spirit that elevated their engagement informs their married life, which they spend running their wilderness guiding service, Thrifty Adventures. While some of the duo’s trips require previous outdoor experience, most welcome all participants, and range from ice climbing adventures to rock climbing and backpacking trips. Along the way, Scott and Christy teach safety basics, climbing techniques, and strategies for preserving natural surroundings, such as refraining from nibbling on the mountain.
