North Carolina: Historic resort gets new life Tuesday, September 30, 2003 Posted: 2:29 PM EDT (1829 GMT)
ASHEVILLE, North Carolina (AP) -- It took 12 years of persistence, a new spa and a reluctant architect to get the golf course at the Grove Park Inn -- designed by Donald Ross -- the attention it deserved.
Now, restored to its classic Ross-style risk-and-reward splendor, the 18-hole layout actually merits its $145 price tag for a round of golf -- and is an ideal complement to the famously romantic environs of the Grove Park.
Nice story on one of my favorite spots in the North Carolina mountains, Grove Park Inn.. I recall last time I was there was trying out for Jeopardy! and meeting Alek there, great guy.. ps. I didn't make the show, but I still love it.. hope to get back to Asheville, NC for a visit soon....
