Various membership offerings are available at Champion Hills in 2023 to meet the demographic and geographic shifts of the past three years that have created unprecedented demand for private golf memberships.
The continued popularity of remote work and the resulting freedom to move from densely populated urban areas in cold climates to Sun Belt states has led to a rise in relocations to the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of Western N.C. This, coupled with the increase in first-time members joining private clubs in the Southeast, has resulted in a record membership sale at Champion Hills.
Champion Hills’ members enjoy golf, tennis, hiking, and other outdoor activities as a golf community and club all year round. Its enviable location in bucolic Henderson County is just 45 minutes south of Asheville’s craft beer capital and cultural center and an hour north of award-winning Greenville. You can walk to downtown Hendersonville, a charming town with shops and restaurants.
Champion Hills’ memberships are suited for an array of ages and lifestyles, and its location in the stunning Blue Ridge Mountains, close to beautiful lakes, as well as interesting towns with a temperate climate and reasonably priced living costs, make it a preferred destination for those wanting more than just Florida or the Northeast. Furthermore, Alan Deck, CCM, PGA – General Manager and Chief Operating Officer – notes that it is conveniently located between both places and only a couple hours away from the bustling Atlanta and Charlotte metropolitan areas.
Champion Hills offers a range of membership plans for golfers looking for a club to call home. The Equity 55 plan is designed for those 55 and under, with an initation fee divided into four payments plus reduced dues and replacement reserve fund contributions. The National Membership enables members to enjoy the privileges, social activities, and friendly competition typical of this premier private golf club; 30 rounds of golf are included before guest fees apply. For those wanting to sample the Champion Hills experience, there is the Annual Explorer Membership – with initiation fee applied to any long-term membership at the end of the year – as well as Full Equity Golf Membership, giving full access to all club amenities plus Vertical Family and Troon Privé benefits. These benefits include entry to 100+ Troon Privé courses, preferred rates at over 150 resorts, plus amenities and preferred benefits at selected Cliff Drysdale Tennis clubs.
Champion Hills is Fazio’s former home course and club. The legendary golf course architect devised a brilliant routing traversing heavily forested hills, deep ravines and cool mountain streams in a scenic Blue Ridge Mountain setting. He and his team of shapers pulled ridges into valleys and filled hollows to create “playing platforms,” providing golfers with level lies amid 350 feet of elevation change.
The course is perennially ranked in Golfweek’s list of the “Top 200 Residential Golf Courses in the U.S.” as well as the esteemed publication’s state-by-state rankings of the best private courses in the country. Champion Hills is one of the few golf courses in the Carolinas to feature five sets of tees rated for women, responding to the growth in this rapidly expanding player demographic.
