Golf Courses Near High Point, NC
High Point sits on a plateau in North Carolina’s Piedmont region, some sixteen miles from Greensboro. If you are in the market for furniture, High Point is the place to be. Known as “The Home Furnishings Capital of the world, ” it has more than 100 furniture stores and outlets. High Point is also a place with plenty of good golf. Popular tee times include two munis, Oak Hollow and Blair Park, where the first nine opened in 1931. Jamestown Park, a smartly designed and fun public layout, features generous rolling fairways flanked by tall trees. The region’s private jewel, the Donald Ross Course at Sedgefield Country Club, hosts the PGA Tour’s Wyndham Championship. If you’re looking for a resort experience, Grandover Resort boasts two eighteens, the East and the West. Golf Advisor has rated the West among North Carolina’s best courses.
You’ll know you’re in furniture heaven when you see the “World’s Largest Chest of Drawers,” a 36-foot-tall building, right outside of Furnitureland South, the world’s biggest furniture store. The town tends to be pretty tranquil except during the weeks of the semi-annual High Point Market for furniture industry insiders and the annual jazz and blues festival celebrating native son John Coltrane. Like Coltrane did in bebop and free jazz, High Point hits the right notes whether you’re in search of furniture or a satisfying tee time.
