Connestee Falls - Brevard NC

Six miles south of downtown Brevard is the golf course community of Connestee Falls.....

Connestee Falls is so much more than a "golf course community". From the start the area was ecologically designed to
Connestee Falls preserve the environment and today this 3,900 acre “neighborhood” is as much a park as it is a great place to call home. Deer and other wild life are common place and, along with the woodlands and spectacular mountain views, they are part of the community’s natural beauty.

Connestee Falls is a unique blend of seasonal and year round residents. Approximately half of the homeowners live here year round.  But whether you live in Connestee year round, or only visit part of the year, when you’re here, you can stay as busy as you choose to be….or not to be.

At the center of activity is the Connestee Falls Clubhouse where you’ll find the Overlook Dining Room, community rooms, a library, the lower level grill, and the golf pro shop.  The 6,000 yd. 72 par golf course designed by George W. Cobb is beautifully maintained and offers up some of the most spectacular scenery and challenging golf around. And thanks to our moderate climate, the course and practice facility are open year round.Connestee Falls club house

Recreational choices at Connestee also includes tennis, hiking trails, a heated swimming pool, a fitness center, and four lakes and parks where you can fish for trout, bass or bream. Plus there are active social groups and clubs for just about every interest from amateur theater to photography and gardening.

There are currently about 1,300 homes in Connestee ranging from condominiums, to small mountain chalets, to larger family size homes. You’re sure to find something that fits your
Lakeneeds. Or, consider one of the residential lots that are available where you can build your dream home or rustic mountain getaway.
