Cummings Cove Golf & Country Club
Cummings Cove is very nice.
Nice course, good for women. I shot my handicap. The white tees are a lot harder on the back, average 4 to 5 stokes more. The forward tees are similar front and back. Very lovely course, fall colors were great. Just starting to go dormant.

Great course, great location for out of town trip
I was planning an out of town golf trip for a few months. I found Cummings Cove on golfnow.com and viewed the course's website as well. I was hooked from the start! Al in the pro shop greeted my friend and I with a warm welcome and a smile! Al took a few minutes to walk us through the course on the scorecard, pointing out little tips for each hole. We then proceeded to the pratice putting green and awaited our tee time. The starter even called our name to annouce the first tee was ready for us! Standing on the first tee I began to get excited at what promised to be a great round of golf at a great course! The first thing I noticed about the course was how clean and beautiful it was maintained. Everything from the tee boxes, yardage markers and signage was in very good, detailed shape. The fairways and rough were in excellent condition. The greens were remarkable and rolled very fast and true. The golf carts featured GPS which was a plus and we used it on almost every shot. The front nine is narrow and the back nine is more open. Nevertheless, I used my driver off the tee only 3 times during the round. The par 3's are tough, no way around it. The par 5's are just plain fun and long! It was my first time playing a mountain course but it will not be my last. Cummings Cove is a beaituful mixture of nature and man made golf playground. I found every hole enjoyable and the views of the mountains were truly breathtaking. My friend and I really enjoyed the peaceful layout and overall conditions of the course. I would recommend if your tee time is before 11AM you eat before arrving at the course as the restraunt did not open until after our tee time. Coffee was free which was a nice treat. My friend and I talked about our day at Cummings Cove during the entire drive back to Atlanta. It was a very positive conversation to say the least. Thank you again to Al and we can't wait to go back to Cummings Cove for another round of peaceful, beautiful mountain golf!

Fun course to play. Mountain course, great shape.
Great elevation changes. Nice greens. Nice layout... Play it you will like it, but bring extra balls!

Great! As expected.
I was spending the weekend in Brevard and decided to play based on reviews here. I was not let down. The course was great, in great shape, and very fun. I have no complaints other than a few falling leaves. Next time I'm in town, I'll play again. I played on a Friday at 9am, and it was a little crowded, but we went off first and it still took a little longer to play than I'd expect. Of course, maybe I was going a little slow to enjoy the scenery.

My new favorite
I could not be happier with the decision to try a new course this weekend. Cummings Cove is my new favorite course. A so as you step out of your vehicle, you know you are in for a treat. The view looking down over holes 1,9,10,&18 is magnificent. After taking this all in it is time to play. You will be riding in a golf cart that features a large touch screen gps unit that is nicer than any hand held unit I have seen. The course has a unique layout with 6 par 3s, 7 par 4s, and 5 par 5s. The course is fairly spread out with a lot of twists and turns, and even a few intersections between holes, but you can count on two things; every inch will be very well maintained, and you will encounter some of the most beautiful view you will ever come across in a golf course. I could ramble on forever about this great course, but the bottom line is that if you decide to try out Cummings Cove, you will not be disappointed.

Fall golf at Cummings Cove
I had a 10 am tee time on a Sunday. They were short of staff (no one at the bag drop, no starter) but the guy in the pro shop was very accommodating and friendly. The course was in good shape - typical fall conditions and the greens had been aerated but were really not bad. It's a fun layout and shot shape and course management are important. Really beautiful views of the mountains - especially from the 16th green! I enjoyed the round and would recommend this course.

Course was in good condition (despite recent rainfall), greens putted very well. Layout is tight and challenging with more emphasis on position than length off the tee and a nice setting within the mountains.

Good Mountain Golf.
This course winds through the hills near Hendersonville, NC. Course is challenging with back tees for added length. Greens and fairways have recovered remarkably well for all the rains we've had this year. Bugs are sometimes an issue, though they were tame the day of our visit.
