Elk River is the result of a vision by Harry and Spencer Robbins, formed more than 20 years ago, to create an exclusive community offering exquisite high country living and exceptional mountain golf.
By partnering with Jack Nicklaus to design his first North Carolina Signature Course, the Robbins brothers succeeded in setting an unwavering standard of quality with Elk River, a comprehensive, luxurious community that folds 1,200 magnificent acres into the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains.
Elk River, a private equity club, is ranked among North Carolina's Top Ten golf courses.
Today, Elk River, a member-owned equity club, is ranked among North Carolina's Top Ten golf courses. A limited number of Golf memberships insure unhurried play on a course that is the benchmark for regional mountain courses. Tee times are rarely needed.
Unique residences within Elk River offer beautiful views of the Blue Ridge, cascading mountain streams, immaculately groomed fairways and shimmering lakes. At altitudes of 4,750 feet, residents enjoy average summertime temperatures in the 70s.
Without argument, Elk River offers a compelling vision for an unrivaled mountain lifestyle with sustained attention to every detail, exquisite equestrian and tennis facilities, a private jetport, all secured by a gated entrance staffed 24 hours-a-day.
Elk River encompasses over 1,200 acres. Golf memberships are limited to 245, insuring unhurried play.
