Cowans Ford in Denver, NC (Lake Norman)

Cowans Ford

Cowans Ford is magnificent. This upscale community, in the Lake Norman area, is located off of Club Road in Denver, NC, in Lincoln County; but the address is Stanley, NC. This luxury waterfront and golf community on Lake Norman was originally just a private country club for some of the elite Duke Power Company employees.

Approximately, twenty years ago the country club went through a huge transformation, whereby a new pool and clubhouse was erected across the street to free up the land on the lake to be developed for homes. At the same time other land owned by, Cowans Ford, was being sold off as golf course lots with first priority given to the current members. This began on the street known as St. Andrews. Today there are still a few lots available but most are owned by private individuals who have purchased them for investment or personal use. Cowans Ford offers waterfront and water view, golf course and golf view, county water and sewer, and curb and gutter, and street lights. Home plans are subject to architectural review.

This beautiful country club setting offers a lot. Besides the 18-hole championship golf course, residents can enjoy an Olympic-size swimming pool, and four lighted tennis courts. Each summer Cowans Ford sponsors a swim team and hosts swim meets at its pool. Prior to the addition to SailView and then Verdict Ridge, Cowans Ford had the only swim team in Denver. Today they also offer water aerobics, tennis clinics, swimming lessons, and golf lessons to members and non-members alike.

The newly renovated clubhouse is one of the latest major modifications that have taken place at Cowans Ford. It is furnished with a widescreen TV, lounge and bar, kitchen, locker rooms, and a pro shop. It's a place where neighbors can gather and enjoy social activities. There are usually scheduled monthly events for members. Club memberships are currently available. Being a resident does not require you to be a member of the club.
