Rumbling Bald Announces New ‘Golf Vacation Planning Service’

LAKE LURE, N.C. – Rumbling Bald, the 36-hole golf resort on North Carolina’s stunning Lake Lure, announces its new Golf Vacation Planning service in advance of the 2020 golf season.

Led by Golf Group Sales Manager J.P. Doran, a veteran tour operator and golf packager, Rumbling Bald’s expert golf vacation planners offer a concierge-level experience helping golf groups plan, organize and executive trips and events of all sizes.

“Being in charge of a large golf group or even planning a trip for a foursome is challenging on many levels, and our goal is to flip the script and make the process easy and enjoyable,” says Doran. “And that doesn’t end when the trip is booked. We are here every step of the way, from the first call or email until the last putts are holed out.”

Home to Apple Valley and Bald Mountain golf courses, Rumbling Bald is one of the region’s only 36-hole golf destinations. Golfers and groups can select from a wide-array of lodging options, ranging from rental homes to studios.

Tucked along the shores of scenic Lake Lure and surrounded by Blue Ridge Mountain foothills, it is both remote and eminently accessible. Charlotte, Asheville and Raleigh, N.C., Knoxville and Nashville, Tenn. and Greenville and Spartanburg, S.C. are all between one and five hours away.

Rumbling Bald recently announced its 2020 golf package lineup, including:

Hole-in One – Starting at $345 per person (based on double occupancy, including taxes and fees), it features: a two-night stay, two rounds of golf on the Apple Valley and Bald Mountain courses, breakfast both days and complimentary, unlimited range balls.
