I have had the pleasure of staying at many golf resorts throughout the United States and Brasstown Valley Resort in my book is one of the best. The golf course was in excellent shape which I would rate as a 10.
… definitely try the spa! We had a couples massage our first time and it was such a pleasant, relaxing experience. We also do the 2 hour horseback trail ride each time.
… every time we visit we make sure to include a 2 hour horseback trail ride.
The grounds a beautiful! There are so many great views of the mountains. Overall the staff were very pleasant and happy to help. We certainly will be back!
