Beautiful view this morning of a rainbow starting at the putting green, spanning over Maples Restaurant and into the lake on hole 10. Its a bit breezy and soggy here but we were spared from the torrential downpours and flooding that our neighbors are suffering. We are looking forward to resuming our normal weather for this time of year by tomorrow!! Thankfully next week’s forecast looks perfect with temps around 65 and (most importantly) NO RAIN!!!
This is a great piece on the place we call home.
Many people believe that there is no finer match than that of golf and beer (not nessarily in that order). With that in mind, we always make sure to have plenty of ice cold brews for our guests as they make their way around this challenging Maples golf course. It is common practice at golf courses to serve beeverages in non-glass containers as a safety precaution. In other words, most beers come in cans. For many golfers that is not an inconvenience because their favorite beers come in cans. As for the lovers of imports, seasonals, or microbrews, they usually aren’t so lucky on the links. For them, they may have to wait until their round is complete to get their beverage of choice at the restaurant. As a result of the growing number of folks who like craft beers, we have expanded our canned beer selection to give our golfers more diversity in beer styles. It is something that you will see grow and change seasonally as we gain access to more craft brews. We just wanted to let you know that beer is important to us too. Cheers!

The Maples crew is just finishing work on a breath taking rock wall around the 5th green. The rock wall was inspired by Bradley Maples (Dan Maples son) this is a great addition to a scenic hole. All of the stone for the wall was collected from the property here at Olde Mill.
This will make for an exciting approach shot over water to the green. Making this par 5 one of the priemere holes in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Come escape to mountain golf at it’s finest nestled just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Olde Mill.
