Community Description

Linville Ridge has gained a reputation as one of the most beautiful mountain golf courses in the country, and its accompanying luxury gated community of homes and homesites is every bit as impressive. Boasting the unique accolade of being the highest elevation golf course east of the Mississippi River, stunning long range mountain views and dramatic landscapes meet you at every turn here, and yet you are only a mere 10 minutes from one of the best college towns in Western North Carolina. Homes and homesites range in elevation from 4,000 to 5,000 feet at Linville Ridge, which was established by Lutgert Companies in 1982. Lutgert has a long-held reputation as a creative and exceptional developer of luxury communities since 1964, making it no wonder why Golf Digest named Linville Ridge on the list of Best in State: Top 100 Golf Courses in 2013. The club offers members access to golf amenities, sports and social club memberships in an unforgettable setting. 


Linville Ridge’s mountain top location sits an hour and half northeast of Asheville, an eclectic mountain city that is often voted as a top destination in the Southeast for its outdoor recreation, culinary excellence, and craft brewing options. Linville Gorge and Grandfather Mountain serve as a dramatic and stunningly beautiful backyard to Linville Ridge, and residents can easily access miles of rugged trails up rocky ridgelines and down into the deepest gorge in the East. The towns of Grandfather, Banner Elk, Boone, and Morganton are nearby, and residents can find commercial shopping, dining and healthcare at these locations. For families seeking year-round residence at Linville Ridge, the closest best schools are the Avery County public schools of Banner Elk Elementary, Avery Middle School, and Avery County High School. Private schools in the area include Crossnore Academy and Tri-county School.


Safety and privacy are highly valued at Linville Ridge, and thus the first amenity residents will enjoy is the safety and security of a 24-hour manned gated entrance. Of course, the primary set of amenities available at Linville Ridge revolve around golf. The challenging 18-Hole Championship Golf Course re-designed by Bobby Weed stands out as the signature amenity here, with an accompanying pro shop and 30,000-square foot Clubhouse with four dining options acting as the cherries on top. Linville Ridge residents can also enjoy 8 Har-Tru tennis courts and a tennis pro shop, an international croquet court, and a 6,000-square foot fitness center featuring a heated swimming pool and day spa. Outdoor enthusiasts will be afforded the opportunity to take advantage of the miles of hiking trails throughout the community and the surrounding area at Linville Gorge and Grandfather Mountain.
