Tucked on the shore of scenic Lake Lure and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, Rumbling Bald is secluded yet eminently accessible from all the major Southeast metro areas. The idyllic retreat features two contrasting and challenging 18-hole layouts: The W.B. Lewis Bald Mountain design and Dan Maples designed championship Apple Valley.
Rumbling Bald’s marquee course, Apple Valley stretches to nearly 6800 yards and features expansive views of Bald Mountain. Maples estimated 75% of all shots at the course are either level of downhill, virtually unheard of for mountain layout. Shimmering ponds adorn 12 holes, but water only comes into play occasionally.
Bald Mountain, at 6300 yards, is renowned for its unique configuration of five par 5s and five par 3s, as it ascends the mountainous terrain, meandering on the hilltop and then returning to the valley from whence it began. The course is a real joy to play from tee to green. Movie buffs will remember the 16th green, the backdrop of a scene from the movie “Dirty Dancing.”
Dining at Rumbling Bald is a culinary delight at the Legends on the Lake, with al fresco seating for those after round libations. Sandwiches and cold beverages are available at Pinnacle Southern Kitchen at the Apple Valley Clubhouse.
Rumbling Bald is rich with amenities and activities including scenic lake boat tours, boat rentals, tennis, pickleball, a full-service spa and hiking trails. Families enjoy the Trout Stream pool and Lazy River winding its way through the outdoor pool where guests relax under fan-cooled covered seating. It is the perfect basecamp for exploring the natural wonders of western North Carolina including Chimney Rock Village on the opposite side of the lake.2
