Bright’s Creek October 2022 Newsletter

General Manager’s Scorecard

Located in the heart of Western North Carolina, Bright’s Creek is a special place. A strong sense of community exists where neighbors and visitors feel welcomed and appreciated. We are the ideal landing spot for someone looking for a community that cares about its residents and Members and gives them the freedom to create their own unique experiences and lifestyle.

October is a beautiful time to play golf and enjoy the beauty of the mountains. Take advantage of one of our Discovery Tours or simply enjoy a stay in our lodge. While it is not an exact science, the foliage should start mid-October and last through early November. For more information, please use the link below.

Our vision is to be Western North Carolina’s first choice mountain community with the highest rated Member and homeowner experience. Supporting that vision, in early 2022, we broke ground on a new amenity center. We expect completion by the end of this year and will ease into full operation in 2023. This is an exciting addition to our community, featuring a pool, bowling alley, fitness, and additional dining options. Bright’s Creek has a fantastic, championship-level Tom Fazio course, and this new center will bolster our services and amenities for the entire family.

I look forward to seeing you at Bright’s Creek.

North Carolina might just possibly be at its best as summer gives way to fall. In the mountains, the leaves turn brilliant colors, and the days are still warm enough to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and views. But that’s just the beginning. Bright’s Creek is no stranger to amazing fall foliage. Leaf peeping abounds at just about every turn. Whether you are golfing, hiking, mountain biking, or relaxing, there is fall color to be enjoyed everywhere.

Be sure to plan ahead by contacting the concierge.

The pool house and the pool are coming along nicely and they have started hanging sheetrock in the Amenity Center!

Get a Grip…

The grip is what attaches us to the club so having a stable, efficient and consistent grip is key for quality play.

The top hand should hold the club in the fingers, allowing the heel pad to fit ON TOP of the butt end of the club to help shoulder the weight. The bottom hand will cover the left thumb and both “V’s” that the thumb and forefinger create point toward the trail collarbone or shoulder. The bottom hand forefinger should wrap around the shaft and again shoulder the weight of the club.
