Mountain Air Country Club to Sponsor Parkway Playhouse Golf Tournament

Burnsville’s Mountain Air Country Club continues to live up to their philanthropic reputation by partnering with the historic Parkway Playhouse to hold a Golf Tournament on Saturday, April 29, 2017.  Registration will start at 11:00 am followed by a 12:00 pm shotgun start.

The Golf Tournament

Mountain Air Country Club has been described by Links magazine as “one of the most dramatic and naturally conceived courses in the country”.   This unique Scott Pool designed 18 hole course spans 6400 yards.  It is located at 4600 feet above sea level and features stunning views and, over the course of play, 900 feet of elevation change.


Golfers can register as a team or as an individual (who will be put onto a team) by contacting the Mountain Air Country Club Pro Shop at 828-682-4600 or by downloading, filling in and then mailing the form available here before April 22nd.

The entry fee is $125 per player and includes golf, cart rental, mulligans, and a “goodie bag”.

The proceeds from the tournament will benefit Parkway Playhouse, the 71-year-old Theatre Company located in Burnsville.

Hole sponsorships are available for $100 per hole. Email  for more information.
