Marion Lake Club Golf Course & Slices Bistro

The ONLY golf course on Lake James, dating back to 1923, when it was designed by famed golf course architect Russell Breeden. This course is open to the public!


Marion Lake Club is located less than 5 miles from I-40. The golf course at Marion Lake Club is noted for spectacular views of Linville Gorge and Shortoff Mountain. The course is set among the area's scenic rolling terrain with Bermuda fairways and excellent bent grass greens. You will love the scenery surrounding the Lake James golf community.

The design of the course at Marion Lake Club is able to challenge the experienced players while helping beginners relax and learn the game. It's a par 70 course, ranking in at 6,300 yards from the back tees. Marion Lake Club is a semi-private golf course. Golfers will love the excellent values found within our membership packages, and thanks to the excellent North Carolina climate, we are able to remain open all year round. 

Stop by Slices Bistro for lunch or dinner, or if you need snack!
