Provisional Guest Program
Thinking about visiting the Highlands Plateau for an extended stay? Then our Provisional Guest Program provides the perfect way for you to experience life at Highlands Falls as a guest for a 30- or 60-day period (one time only) to determine if we’re the right Club for you and your family. If you decide to join and are accepted for membership at Highlands Falls within one year of your visit, the Provisional Guest Program fee can be credited toward your initiation fee.

Discovery Experience
Our Discovery Experience is designed for those seriously considering membership at Highlands Falls and cannot participate in our Provisional Guest Program. The experience provides an opportunity to enjoy golf or a non-golf activity, one lunch and one dinner for two, a tour of the Club and plenty of time to meet and get to know our members and staff.
Our Membership Director, George Thompson, stands ready to fill you in on all the details and benefits of becoming a member of Highlands Falls Country Club. You can reach him via telephone at 828.482.0253 or via email at gthompson@clubhfcc.com.

Q: What if I am interested in joining the club, but I do not know any Members?
