Yonahlossee Resort & Club

Boone, North Carolina

By Roger Cox, Editor

Set deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, the Yonahlossee Resort & Club started out in 1922 as a summer camp for girls, but took on an entirely different dimension after being converted to a tennis resort in 1987. Then as now guests stayed either in an inn or the cottages and homes on the property and dining in the 1920s stone house now known as the Gamekeeper Restaurant and Bar or other local restaurants. Although the resort's amenities have been expanded to include a spa, fitness center, and pool, tennis at the member-owned private club (though open to guests) remains the centerpiece: outdoors, from May through October on its seven Har-Tru courts, and indoors on three hard courts year round. Director of tennis Bryan Dirk schedules a full slate of weekly activities, including adult and junior clinics, men's and ladies nights, Cardio tennis, drill sessions, and Play with the Pro events supplemented by custom-designed programs for tennis teams. All and all, it's a solid program in an exceptional location. For specifics about tennis, visit Yonahlossee Racquet Club.
