Franklin Golf Course

Nestled in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, Franklin Golf Course has been a family tradition since 1923. Our convenient location, beautiful views, challenging course, and family atmosphere make Franklin Golf Course a great choice for golfers of all ages and skill levels.

The course is 9 holes, par 36, and is 2,933 yards in length. Other amenities include a putting green, swimming pool, driving range, a fully stocked pro shop, snack bar, and complete club repair shop that offers custom club fitting for all ages.

Franklin Golf Course is open year round from 8 am until dusk. The public is always welcome, and annual memberships are available.


Pro Shop

Franklin Golf Course's Pro Shop can satisfy all your golfing needs. Need to update those old, worn out clubs? Choose from name brands such as Nike, Adams Golf, Wilson, Rawlings, Mizuno, and Precept. Be sure to check out our apparel as well. The Pro Shop has a variety of caps, polo shirts, and shoes to choose from.

If the need arises, take advantage of our in house club repair. Repairs, grips, or even custom fitting - we can do it on site.

Swimming Pool

The water sparkles in the heat of the midday sun, so if you are ready to cool off, put on your trunks and dive on in. Relax and enjoy the sun on the deck or make a few laps; it is all up to you. If you work up an appetite while poolside, place an order in the snack bar. So, bring the whole family down and soak up the sun.

Driving Range

Need to work on your golf swing? Get a small, medium, or large bucket of balls and fine tune your skills. If you cannot seem to get rid of that nasty slice or hook, ask about our golf lessons. An on site instructor can give you pointers and get you back on track to hitting the ball long and straight. Located next to the first tee, it makes it easy to stretch those muscles and warm up before you tee off.
