North Cove Leisure Club is Raising Funds for its Community-Owned Expansion
Outdoor recreation center is offering an opportunity for community-passionate investors
October 3, 2022 – Marion, NC – Nestled in the heart of 157 acres of Appalachian Mountain land in rural McDowell County, NC, disc golf destination North Cove Leisure Club, is thrilled to announce its plans to become the largest community-owned outdoor music venue and premium outdoor club celebrating nature, outdoor leisure, and recreation.
Seeing solid bones and major potential, North Cove Leisure Club plans to invest in its local community and elevate its outdoor offerings in a beautiful location. North Cove garnered attention in North Carolina when it officially opened two 18-hole disc golf courses in 2021. Now, North Cove is expanding with plans to facilitate new outdoor activities, food and drink, scenic venue spaces, and even more disc golf.
“Our intentions are to turn this into a multi-recreational facility. Half of the 157 acres will be dedicated to creating a world-class disc golf facility; think the Augusta National of disc golf,” says co-owner Luke Peniston. Peniston added they want it to be “a family-friendly and community-driven” place that will be available to the public. To make it all happen, North Cove is seeking help with an investment campaign, geared toward those who are passionate about growing local communities.

To keep its growth plans in motion, North Cove is opening its capital raise to all members of its community. With the recent rise in outdoor recreation and specifically with disc golf as the 2nd fastest growing sport in the US, North Cove is looking to create a space that serves both the highly specialized disc golf community and the broader outdoor market.
Through a two-phase round, North Cove will continue its partnership with Innova Disc Golf to expand its disc golf offerings into a state-of-the-art disc golf course utilizing the streams, pathways, and untouched landscape to build trails and walkways. The addition of these trails will open access to more guests and will generate additional revenue opportunities such as event space rentals and disc golf green fees. Lined with the backdrop of the Smoky Mountains, there will be something for everyone at North Cove. Visitors will have the opportunity to spend the day or weekend playing a round of disc golf or pickleball, hike or bike the newly built trails, enjoy a meal and local craft beer at the Birdie’s Restaurant, or see one of their favorite artists under the mountain stars.
