Request Real Estate Information About The Cliffs at Walnut Cove

The Cliffs at Walnut Cove is a scene of natural beauty, inspired by the ageless villages of Europe and just minutes from downtown Asheville, North Carolina, a city consistently recognized as one of the best places in the country to live.

Protected by the natural boundaries of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Pisgah National Forest, Walnut Cove is a private golf community offering dramatic mountain vistas alongside an award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course, receiving accolades from Golf Digest and Golfweek, among others. In the words of Jack Nicklaus, “Walnut Cove provides an extraordinary natural setting for golf. There are areas on the course that make you feel as if you are playing through a national forest.”

At the heart of Walnut Cove stands The Club Village, a nice spot for a morning cup of coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. The Club Village at Walnut Cove features a newly renovated Golf House, turnhouse, and a Tudor-style tavern.

Members enjoy a 500,000-acre backyard comprised of the Blue Ridge Mountains, miles of hiking trails, and fields of wildflowers and mountain laurels. The Cliffs at Walnut Cove is a combination of seclusion, convenience, natural splendor, and elegance.

"we live within a few minutes of one of the most interesting and exciting small towns; Asheville. The club offers not only activities inside the gates, golf, tennis, hiking, wellness, swimming etc, but outside the gates as well ike shooting,fly fishing and car racing. There are lots of food oriented activities like wine and beer tasting and all types of ethnic dinners. Our community also sponsors multiple charitable events annually to raise money for the community which certainly brings the club members together for a good cause."
