Kristin Kurie, president of Charleston, SC-based Wilderman Group announced that the hospitality management organization was named by the executive committee of the board of directors to manage the Cleveland Country Club, Cleveland County, North Carolina’s only private golf course, and an integral part of the western North Carolina golfing community.
Recognized as the premier club in the western North Carolina region, Cleveland Country Club was established in 1927 and continues to provide members and guests with genuine warmth and high-end hospitality.

The course rating is 71.2 and it has a slope rating of 126 on Bermuda grass. The Club also features numerous clay and hard surface tennis courts, a delightful pool, and recently renovated clubhouse. The Club offers a variety of amenities and facilities to retirees, weekend travelers, and families.
