Optional Tour # 1:

Golf at Omni Grove Park Inn
Enjoy a round of golf with your AHTD colleagues and never leave the property. A truly historic course that opened in 1894, Donald Ross redesigned the course in 1926, and it was overhauled in 2001 to keep the same feel and spirit. It has since earned nods from Conde Nast Traveler (Top 20 Southern U.S. Golf Resorts in 2011) and North Carolina Golf Panel (Top 100 Golf Courses in the State). Featuring 6,600 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 70, the course offers impressive views of the hotel and the surrounding mountains.
