Commitment to Preservation and Sustainability.
Development in and around Grandfather Golf and Country Club has progressed in harmony with nature since its inception. In 1992, Grandfather Mountain was selected by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as a member of the international network of Biosphere Reserves. Land surrounding Grandfather Mountain and Grandfather Golf and Country Club belongs to the North Carolina State Park System and the Nature Conservancy. As such, it will be protected from further development for years to come.
