The Lutgert Companies have been creating new experiences in luxury living for their clients and business partners for over fifty years. Their commitment to quality, elegance and service remains as solid today as it was in 1964 when Raymond L. Lutgert broke ground on the development of a 760-acre parcel bordering a pristine piece of Naples, Florida beachfront.

Raymond, a summertime resident of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, saw potential for a high-end development in the mountains featuring the same luxury finishes and incredible views featured in the beachfront developments. Partnered with his son Scott F. Lutgert, the search began for a mountaintop property that would allow enough property to build an 18-hole golf course.

A 1,500-acre parcel became available on Flattop Mountain. The views from Flattop Mountain and the flat land indicated by its name provided the ideal location for the development. The completion of the course would be one of the highest altitude courses in the Eastern United States. Linville Ridge broke ground in the early 80s, with plans to build the grounds and course to highlight breathtaking overlooks and views of Grandfather Mountain.

Over the past five decades, The Lutgert Companies have set the standard for the creative and environmentally responsible development of luxury properties. The Lutgert family’s vision and passion for excellence run three generations deep, and continue to produce extraordinary experiences for its customers.

What a nice feeling when you walk into the club and every employee from the Director of Golf to the bag boy addresses you with not only your name but a smile on their face. It just starts the day off with a bang, and it keeps getting better after that. – Mary Lester
