The “Hidden Gem” of Catawba County…

Offering unmatched amenities in the Catawba Valley region from the genius of acclaimed course architect Donald Ross, Catawba Country Club promising pleasurable yet challenging play.
With approximately 200 picturesque acres located in Newton, North Carolina just outside of Hickory, Catawba Country Club offers a championship-caliber golfing experience. Unmatched in the Catawba Valley region, our course was designed in 1946 by Donald Ross, the famed architect whose well-known work also includes Pinehurst’s prestigious Number Two Course. Retained to design a facility that would offer a unique golfing experience, Ross produced a distinctive 18-hole championship course that is always a challenge, never mastered and, above all, playable day in and day out.
