Beech Mountain, NC

Has anyone played the new layout at Beech Mountain, NC this season? Only 2 reviews on DGCR and they are from last year. It appears the course is free and a new layout. Chairlift ride not required.

I wonder if it is worthy to play while in the Boone area. We plan to play
Ashe County park, Jefferson, NC // Highland Hills in North Wilkesboro, NC
Winged Deer in Johnson City, TN // Warriors Path state park in Kingsport, TN // Cherokee Park in Morristown, TN // Morristown Kiwanis DGC in Morristown, TN

Would Beech Mtn be considered in this class of high rated/reviewed courses?

I don't know about Beech mountain, but I'm worn out just thinking about some of those courses. You'll be tired after this trip!

Why isn't Harmon Hills on your list? That's the course you need to think about, not Beech Mountain.

Whole-heartedly agree! You're truly missing out if you come this way and don't play Harmon Hills...

You'll be ****ing up big time if you don't go to HH.
Scrap the Winged Deer / Warriors Path day and just go to Harmons!

beech mtn

let's get this out of the way early, craig. yes, i did mirror your user name i created a login solely to review beech mtn from last month, because the new layout had nothing to do with the two reviews on dgcr. i just didn't get around to it. so, i went there for a lazy downhill day, didn't even bring any water. even with one lift ride to the top, there was a fair amount of traversing and uphills. fun course, but save for a few downhill bombs, i'm not sure it's worth it. navigation was so-so (one or two holes were misnumbered). lost one disc because it's a blind shot over one fairway and a set of trees landing on another fairway with waist-high grass. good views though.

I think I'd just play Ashe County four times.

I don't know that Beech Mountain would be at the caliber of the others on this list but I can tell you that Ashe Co. Park and Highland Hills are defnitely worth your time!!!!

Here are the big 3 you gotts play, the others are just a bonus:
1. Harmon Hills... currently rated #10 on DGCR
2. Ashe County... consistently in the Top 50
3. Cherokee Park... definitely not as good as the other 2 above... but better than the rest of the courses on your list.
