At The Cliffs at Walnut Cove, you’ll find the convenience and excitement of living in one of the nation’s fastest growing cities, with the calm and ease of a private community immersed in the quiet splendor of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Opened in 2005, the Walnut Cove Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is the only championship golf course to have debuted with a PGA Tour event. The course’s front nine holes wind across open fields of former farmlands, and the back nine play into native woodland vegetation, crisscrossing over and around babbling mountain streams. The course features four sets of tees, making the rolling terrain approachable for every level of golfer and offering any player a perfectly memorable round.
At the heart of Walnut Cove is the Club Village, home to the Clubhouse, Tavern, Golf Shop and linkside townhomes. Characterized by rustic, Old World European splendor — a favorite of the early 20th-century architects who made their home in Asheville after the construction of the Vanderbilts’ Biltmore estate — the Club Village sets the tone for this warm and welcoming community.
The Tavern is home to several dining experiences: The casual Tavern pub and grand dining hall, both featuring exquisite dishes using local meats, artisan ingredients and seasonal produce. The Tavern terrace is popular for enjoying barbecues, live music and splendid views.
The 18,000-square foot, state-of-the-art Walnut Cove Wellness Center features a cardio area, functional training room including a TRUE Stretch machine and aerobics studio. A heated indoor pool and Junior Olympic outdoor swimming pool are available for swimming laps or water fitness classes, after which members can unwind in the outdoor hot tub. The Wellness Center also features four lighted Har-Tru clay tennis courts, personal training and consultation from our exercise physiologists and trainers, and spa services.
The Cliffs at Walnut Cove is nestled into the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, literally steps away from the Pisgah National Forest and minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway, DuPont State Forest and more, offering limitless opportunities for you to explore this stunning setting. Traverse miles of hiking trails within the Walnut Cove gates, taking you past lush wildflower fields, babbling waterfalls and picnic tables waiting just for you, or set off on an adventure with the Blue Ridge Parkway guiding the way.
If you’d rather stay indoors, Walnut Cove boasts countless community events, special dining opportunities, social clubs and endless ways to gather for a good time with friends and neighbors, and the Walnut Cove Members Association — a non-profit organization comprised of Walnut Cove Members — is a wonderful way to gather with your fellow members while giving back to the Asheville community and local charities.
Hand select a homesite on which to build the house of your dreams, or purchase a home or townhome already available.

Adjacent to the Club Village, linkside townhomes start at $850,000 and offer plenty of space and privacy, yet are convenient and low maintenance. Near the Wellness Center are the Cove Park Cottages, an enclave of elegant, English-style cottages for owners ready to embrace an easy lifestyle.
