Welcome to Cleghorn Golf and Sports Club

Welcome to Cleghorn Golf and Sports Club at Tryon Resort (formerly Cleghorn Plantation), one of the best places to play golf in Western North Carolina. Cleghorn is more than 18 holes of golf; it is an experience you will not soon forget. The views, the George Cobb design (famous for Quail Hollow Club and Par 3 at Augusta National), and the pristine conditions will give you four hours of solid enjoyment. Your best round at Cleghorn will have nothing to do with your score. It will be about the challenge you face on every tee box and how you handle the 18 adventures in front of you.

Sporting Clays

The Sporting Clays course was designed and outfitted by nationally renowned Sporting Clay course designers, Rick Hemmingway and Heyward Cunningham, with major input and direction from Bob Standish. The course consists of 15 stations with four traps per station allowing for a two course (Blue and Gold) layout with target trajectories strategically positioned for every shooter level. The design and layout of the course has beautifully incorporated the topographic character and natural flow of the surrounding land.

The Long-Range Target Management system, used to operate the trap machines, allows for a variety of target combinations, providing numerous target options and patterns. A five-stand facility with eight traps, including a wobble trap, provides challenging target trajectories for competition practice or warm-up.

Golf carts, rental guns, and ammo are available at competitive pricing in the Pro Shop. Guns available by Caesar Guerini in 12 and 20 gauge over/under models.
