    When Robert Trent Jones saw the land that hugs the edge of Lake Saugahatchee that would be developed into his Grand National course, he described it as the “single greatest” site for a golf complex that he had ever seen. It’s no wonder then that in 2005 Golf Digest named the Auburn-Opelika Metropolis as the number one area for golf in the United States.

    Tucked in between the Blue Ridge Mountains and Greenville, Travelers Rest earned its name because travelers would stop there before embarking on the difficult journey into the mountains; oftentimes spending the winter waiting for the mountain snow to clear. A throwback to a time before traffic jams and chain stores, it is filled with family-oriented businesses that cater to the needs of the community.

    The small town of Incline Village sits on the picturesque north shore of Lake Tahoe. During the mining boom in the late 1800s, lumber for the mines was harvested from the abundant timber supplies around Lake Tahoe. The lumber hauled up 1,400 feet on an incline railway and then dropped through a gravity flume down the western side of the mountain to Carson City.
