The Highlands Plateau A unique and upscale community,

 

Highlands sits high atop a plateau in the mountains of Western North Carolina 4118 ft. above sea level. The town was founded in 1875 by two Kansas land developers who, according to folklore, drew a line on the map from New York to New Orleans and another from Chicago to Savannah.

The point at which these lines intersected, they believed, would become a major thoroughfare and some day, a great population center. What evolved was the highest incorporated town east of the Rockies known to the well-traveled as a popular summer resort locale with coveted health benefits.

When visitors arrive in Highlands, they are taken aback by the amount of charm and culture that exudes from this little town. Home to the Highlands Playhouse, the oldest theatre in North Carolina, the Martin-Lipscomb Performing Arts Center, The Bascom: A Center for the Visual Arts, and the Highlands-Cashiers Chamber Music, residents and visitors alike are exposed to world renowned theatrical performances, musicals and concerts.

Maggie Valley Community

 

Long before golf came to Maggie Valley, Sentelle and Mary Francis Moody opened their home to local residents and provided room and board (in small cabins) and education in exchange for working the land. As more tourists traveled to the region, the small cabins were converted into guest cottages, marking the beginning of the tourism industry in the area.The Moody Farm became famous for its hospitality and home-style cooking. In the early 1960s, their success attracted a group of investors headed by Wimore Bremmer who purchased the farm's front bottomland and converted the old tobacco and cornfields into the front nine holes of the golf course, known today as the Valley Nine. 

The fairways were sewn by hand - three times, due to washout - and Maggie Valley Country Club welcomed its first golfers August 23, 1963.As the territory developed, homes were added along the course, and a second nine holes were added to the course farther up the mountain, the Mountain Nine. The course was later renovated in 2007 and presently stands as a North Carolina favorite, with sugar-white bunkers, 50,000 square feet of perennial gardens and a spectacular clubhouse at the heart of it all.

With its humble origins as the homestead of Sentelle and Mary Francis Moody, the Club has grown from a labor of love into the beautiful club and resort it is today.
