Our first impression:
Maggie Valley Club is easy to find, and looks fabulous after its recent restoration. The golf course opened in 1963. The property is meticulously landscaped, pleasing my eyes with abundant colorful wildflowers, 50,000 square feet of them, to be exact. The property encompasses 300 acres. Maggie Valley Club offers lots, cottages, condominiums, and townhouses. The 18,000 square foot Timber & Post clubhouse had a ‘face lift’ too, featuring dramatic rustic mountain décor. The clubhouse comprises a pro shop, fitness center, Pin High Bar & Grille and the Renaissance dining room. We were greeted in the Clubhouse by cheerful Billie Green, Sales Consultant for Maggie Valley Club, even though she gave up her Sunday morning to come in to see me.
Maggie Valley Club’s 6,500 yard golf course is gorgeous with tall hardwood trees, flowering trees and extra large ‘Christmas Trees’ clearly in view. We are sure there are thousands of postcards circulating across America reminding folks of Maggie Valley Club’s beauty. The front nine holes are relatively flat, the back nine rising up to 3,000 feet in elevation rewarding players with magnificent views. Maggie Valley Club golf course is rated 4 stars out of 5 by www.golflink.com

More observations about Maggie Valley Club:
The least expensive product, other than lots, is a 1,272 square foot 2 bedroom, 2 bath condominium with a one car garage for $249K. The condominium buildings have three stories. There are three 1,598 square foot 3 bedroom, 2 bath condominiums available for sale from $260K-$290K. Half of the 33 condominiums have been sold. The website reflects a recent price reduction. A buyer may catch a real bargain with the condominiums right now because we think that is what the developer would like to sell most. There are 12 cottage sites, 8 available for purchase. Two cottages are under construction at this time, a one story and a two story. Baldwin Log & Timbercrafters builds the unit. The cottage homes have 2,000+ square feet, 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath priced from $360K for a one level cottage, $449K for a two story cottage with a loft. The developer spares no expense with quality interior finishes. The architect maximized every inch of space giving cottage owners spacious areas inside and outside. Cottage purchases include a full golf membership at this time.
Maggie Valley Club’s newest product is 18 townhomes, 2 per building. The townhomes have three bedroom, 3 baths, attached 2 car garages, 2855-2995 square feet under air, massive glass windows, and outdoor covered patios showcasing amazing views of the golf course. We toured two which are almost complete. The starting price is $599K. 15 of the 27 home sites remain unsold. Prices start at $139K, 1.54 acres, most at $199K+. Maggie Valley Club has sold one cottage in 2009, no lots, and no condominiums.
