Carolina National Golf Club
This 27-hole facility designed by Masters Champion Fred Couples was opened in 1998 and has been recognized by Golf Digest as one of the finest courses on the eastern seaboard. An Audubon-Certified Sanctuary course, each nine is named for a bird that can be found on site - Egret, Heron, and Ibis.
The golf course boasts five sets of tees, which allow golfers of all skill levels to enjoy the course. Couples has integrated a “Masters Feel” to each nine, which is evident when you set foot on the first tee box. Set along the banks of the Lockwood Folly River in North Carolina, Carolina National Golf Club winds through scenic wetlands and maritime forest providing a variety of playing experiences. The Heron nine features what has been labeled the course’s signature hole, a par three measuring 203 yards from the back tees. The green extends out in the marsh and provides breathtaking views of the Lockwood Folly River. This hole can be set to play from many different angles, as the tee boxes can be arranged to change the view of the hole.
Outstanding facilities contribute to a great golf experience as Carolina National has a large practice range along with a 14,000-square-foot putting green, and a spacious clubhouse which includes a large dining area to accommodate its membership.
