The course winds through heavily undulating land and features several bridges through wetlands, three waterfalls, and beach bunkers, all flanked by native Southeastern North Carolina grasses and wildflowers.
From the bag drop until the last drop at the 19th hole, our sole focus is on an exceptional end-to-end golf experience. Our course conditions and commitment to service are unmatched outside of private country clubs – allowing you to enjoy golf as it should be.
