October 23, 2012 - Birmingham, Ala. - Honours Golf Company has been selected by The Colonial Company to provide management services for Maggie Valley Club & Resort, an upscale golf community in Maggie Valley, N.C.
With its location near Waynesville and Asheville in western North Carolina, Maggie Valley Club is enjoyed year-round by residents, golfers and vacationing families seeking respite and relaxation in a resort atmosphere. Its scenic setting in the Smoky Mountains and variety of indoor and outdoor function space make the property a popular choice for weddings, parties, meetings, reunions and other special events. Since it opened in 1962, the resort has developed a rich tradition based on its unique blend of Southern hospitality, scenic vistas and mountain golf.
The centerpiece of the property is its 6,500-yard championship course, which offers panoramic views of the valley and mountain ridgelines. The course design by William Prevost Sr. incorporates some of western North Carolina's most spectacular scenery, with an elevation rise of 800 feet between the front Valley Nine and the more challenging Mountain Nine. Flanked by centennial trees, the fairways feature native foliage, perennial gardens and creek-fed ponds.
"We've noted the success enjoyed by various clubs and other properties managed by the Honours Golf team of professionals, and we wanted to work with a company of that caliber to increase exposure of Maggie Valley Club," said Mac McLeod, president and CEO of The Colonial Company. "Our players benefit by gaining priority access to Honours' network of properties throughout the Southeast, and we welcome the opportunity for members of its other managed properties to enjoy Maggie Valley Club."
In addition to overseeing golf operations, Honours Golf will also manage the numerous other amenities and services offered at Maggie Valley Club. The resort offers dining at the Pin High Bar & Grille, fitness center, tennis courts and heated swimming pool. The property includes approximately 40 condominiums available for vacation rentals and stay-and-play golf packages.
"Maggie Valley has a well established reputation as a popular vacation destination with one of the top courses in western North Carolina," said Bob Barrett, chief executive officer of Honours Golf. "We are honored to work with The Colonial Company to continue the 50-year tradition of excellence offered at Maggie Valley Club & Resort. We are especially excited about expanding our network of managed properties into North Carolina."
