Land Harbor Lake and the Linville River are home to the best fishing spots around. With a dedicated group of volunteers on the Fishing Committee stocking 6 times a year with trout, there isn’t a bad spot on our 45 acre lake to fish. Also swimming in the lake, we have bass, catfish, crappie, blue gill and carp. Fly Fishing and Bait Cast Fishing are permitted on the lake as well as the use of electric trolling motor.
Feeding the lake is the Linville River, where it is Fly Fishing only. A Land Harbor permit is required for fishing the lake and river, except below the lake dam, where only a North Carolina license is required.

The beautiful, semi private, member owned mountain golf course boasts 18 challenging holes of tree lined fairways, manicured greens, and several streams and ponds. The course layout follows the natural contours of the land, which creates a perfect setting for a challenging golf course with exhilarating views.
Two distinct nines test all aspects of a player’s game. Narrow tree-lined fairways require accuracy on both nines, but especially on holes 10 through 18. The fast, gently contoured greens require a keen eye and soft putting stroke.
