Traveling home to Ky and wanted to play one last round in NC. Attraction sign on Rt. 74 had Cleghorn GC as an attraction. Played 18 holes and was wonderfully surprised with the layout, condition and friendly staff. Great place to play with a very generous late afternoon discount.

Played this course twice while staying at Lake Lure. Pretty easy drive to the course from the Lake Lure area. It was reasonably priced. The layout was great! It was fun to play this course. It did show some wear.... maybe because of the heat (98 deg). We played on a Monday and Wednesday and the course was pretty open.... More

Excellent golf experience. Golf course is well laid out and well maintained. Tricky for the amateur golfer and a challenge for the experienced golfer.

We had a group of three of us play this course on a Monday in March, and it was a great course. It has beautiful views, and the course was in great shape. The course can eat you lunch if you are not careful, but smart play will reward you. This course is a great value and has wonderful staff.

This was a good course. Still nice layout. However, course maintenance neglect shows, especially the greens.

Beautiful course with super nice folks running it. Dave Long, club pro, has done a super job in restoring this course after several years of disrepair.

My buddy and I played Cleghorn for the first time and we both fell in love with the place. It is a challenging course but also a fun course. You have lots of different elevations to tee off from. Beautiful holes tucked into corners. Fairways and greens in great condition. And the staff was very friendly. (And we got a... More

True mountain golf at very reasonable cost. The layout is one of the best in the Carolinas and the course is in fantastic shape. The staff is willing to help you with any issues and the pro offers lessons for those looking to improve their game.

I was hoping the course was better than the last time I played and I can say it's about the same. The greens are like playing on a wet marshmallow. They have to be the slowest I have ever played on. The fairways are still bare hard as a rock. I don't think I will be going back.
