Golf Course # 8 in the back HHI -Fall 05 - by Eduardo Moreira

The 18-hole golf course at High Hampton Inn is a “fairway to heaven.” Tucked away in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, the course is surrounded by towering pines, mountain peaks and a serene lake.

One of the most popular holes on the course is the 8th hole.  Located on a peninsula that juts into Hampton Lake, the scenic par-3, 155-yard hole has been designated “One of America’s Great Golf Holes” by Golf Digest for its breathtaking panorama views of the mountains, lake and resort.

Golfing at the High Hampton Inn is an experience you will never forget. The course was designed to challenge all types of golfers form those with low handicaps to beginners.

“The course was designed for the enjoyment of the game and not to host a championship. We wanted to allow families and beginners the opportunity to play and have fun,” said Craig Hartle. “We want you to walk away after your round of golf having an enjoyable experience and maybe the round of your life!”
