Mountaintop Golf

Designed by renowned golf course architect Tom Fazio, Mountaintop offers one of the best golf experiences in the country.

Known for honoring the unique character and natural beauty of each setting in his designs, Fazio came to the plateau area in the mid-1980s. He has designed three courses in Cashiers: Mountaintop, Wade Hampton Golf Club, and High Hampton.
