Elk River is the result of a vision by Harry and Spencer Robbins, formed more than 20 years ago, to create an unparalleled residential community offering exquisite High Country living and exceptional mountain golf. By partnering with Jack Nicklaus to design his first North Carolina Signature Course, the Robbins brothers succeeded in setting an unwavering standard of quality with Elk River, a comprehensive, luxurious community that folds 1,200 magnificent acres into the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains. Today, Elk River, a member-owned, equity club, is ranked among North Carolina's Top Ten golf courses. A limited number of Golf memberships insure unhurried play on a course that is the benchmark for regional mountain courses. Tee times are rarely needed.
