Default Best Appalachian Mountain courses in OH, VA, WV, KY?

My wife and I are road tripping from Des Moines, IA to the Outer Banks of NC in a few weeks. Looking to get a couple of mountain courses in along the way, so any suggestions are welcome. Thanks!!

Normally, I'd suggest the Goat Path...Goatman's a super swell dude, a great host, and has a very very cool course; however, it looks as though its closed until further notice, most likely due to the seasonal tick problem. Not sure if it'll be operational by the time you swing through.

Good luck!

Not sure if this is what you mean by 'mountain', but If you're coming through the Ohio river valley, the Rotary Park/Indian Rock combo in Huntington, WV will give you all the climbing and woods you'll need to fill one day's energy...

In northern WV you have several worthy complexes. From west to east:

Grand Vue Park - Black, White, and Yellow
Orange Crush and Seth Burton
Whippin' Post and The Woodshed

Though they aren't "Appalachian Mountain courses," you'll pass by some good VA courses. Walnut creek just outside of Charlottesville has plenty of elevation change with a mix of open and wooded holes. Williamsburg has 2 very nice courses with New Quarter and Waller Mill. If elevation change is what you're looking for, they both have some but far less than Walnut Creek or any mountain courses. All of these have a variety of tees/baskets to help cater to different ability levels.

Mayflower Hills outside Roanoke is the best Appalachian mountain course I have had the opportunity to play. (and I dearly love Paw Paw)

I loved Mayflower Hills last October, it's fabulous. Ashe County in NC is also great.

I agree completely. If Mayflower isn't too far out of the way, definitely worth a stop.

Lake Marshall is pretty much on the way as well. Maybe a bit out of the way depending on route
