The present day Country Club of Asheville was purchased by the club around 1976. Prior to the purchase Beaver Lake golf course was in bad shape and much of the funding CCA acquired from the sale of the original course was used to rebuild the course as well as build a new clubhouse on its original location. Beaver Lake, Originally known as Lakeview Park, was built in connection to the Lakeview Park neighborhood that surrounds and borders the west part of the course. Donald ross built the course around 1927-28 with the plan for the clubhouse to be placed at its current location but up until 1976 the clubhouse was found across Merrimon Ave. and the current 4th hole played as the first. There is evidence to suggest that prior to Ross there was a nine hole course that played up the river valley where the current 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th holes preside and I've seen notes on maps as early as 1917 that suggest the existence golf in this area. If true I believe this would be the location for the possible Parks course.
The Grove Park Inn course history is more straightforward with the expansion of the Swannanoa Country Club into golf beginning with a basic golf course at the location of their hunt club. As golf gained popularity amongst the members golf was moved to the current property and the name was changed to the Asheville Country Club, a full 18 hole course was completed around 1905. Donald Ross was brought in to improve the course in 1913 but it does not appear he did a significant amount of work to alter the original layout. Much of the layout changes were in response to a clubhouse fire in the 20's and the expansion of the hotel in the 80's. The clubs name was changed again in the mid '40s to Country Club of Asheville and the course was sold to the Grove Park Inn in 1976.
