Five (5) nights’ accommodations in a luxury Cottage at Linville Ridge Country Club in Linville, North Carolina for three (3) couples

Sometimes you need an escape to pure mountain air, an unhurried lifestyle and remarkably friendly people. If so, you can’t get much better than Linville, North Carolina. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains 75 miles northeast of Asheville, Linville is a summer mountain resort and home to the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games, the largest modern Highland games in the state.

However, the winning bidder’s party of six won’t be wrestling or tossing hammers. They’ll be ensconced for five nights in a luxury cottage at the Linville Ridge Country Club, where they’ll have more refined pursuits to choose from. They’ll be playing the highest elevation golf course east of the Mississippi River, refreshed in 2007 by Bobby Weed and honored as the “Renovation of the Year” by Golf, Inc. magazine. They’ll participate in one of the many activities centered around the clubhouse: tennis, bocce, bridge, croquet, pickleball and the book club. They’ll be relaxing in one of the many dining venues or hiking the scenic mountain trails. Whatever they choose to do, it’s unlikely they’ll want to return home.

INSIDER’S INFO:  Airfare and ground transportation are not included. Full membership privileges, including a waiver of greens fees and a personal house account for dining and other incidental charges are included. Available dates to be confirmed by mutual agreement. Limited to May 15–June 29, 2020 and July 6–October 15, 2020. Trip must be taken before October 15, 2020.

DONORS: Simone & Scott Lutgert
