Burlingame Country Club
• Members Only
A premier golf community chiseled around the beautiful plateau of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Burlingame, formerly known as Burlingame at Sapphire Lakes, features an 18 hole golf course complete with astonishing mountain views and a meandering stream running right through it and elevation reaching 3,500 feet. Lawn sports available at Burlingame features 4 Har-Tru tennis courts as well as a croquet lawn with an ever growing calendar as the sport is becoming more and more popular in the mountains. A 17,000 square foot fitness facility is available to you offering yoga classes, personal trainers and gorgeous views of the surrounding mountains and waterfalls making for an inspirational workout.
The Horsepasture River is the ornament of North Carolina Mountain rivers. It runs through the community offering over three miles of scenic hiking trails and leads to 11 waterfalls. Stop along the way at Mills River Park, complete with an outdoor pavilion and children's playground. Or journey across the bridge to Burlingame's dog park where playful pooches have access to the Horsepasture River as well. Not only is the river great to gaze at while taking a leisurely stroll or to cool down in, it is also well known for its excellent trout fishing. Indulge in the thrill of reeling in a record size rainbow trout right out of the cool, clear mountain water. Join in on Burlingame's Hiking & Fishing Club that tours the entire river corridor, while learning about the history of the area and the plentiful surrounding wildflowers along the way.
