Opening in 1983, course designer Dan Maples built this magnificent golf course in Sunset Beach, N.C. which offers a combination of natural terrain and ingenious design to Bay present golfers with a true test of golf on a beautiful setting. This course features two island greens and other risk-reward opportunities that require a steady hand and rugged nerves. All handicaps are in for a treat on this links-style course that’s as lovely as it is challenging.
Receiving recognition from Golf Digest as “Best Places to Play” in 2005 and “5 Stars” in 2003, this will be worth the extra mile. The signature hole will be the 17th, at only 165 yards from the back tees, features a tiny green enclosed by trees and lined by the course’s trademark oyster shells. Another recognized hole is the 9th, a monster par 5, playing at 560 yards, with the marshy waters of the Calabash River running from tee to green on the left and out of bounds on the right, it presents a daunting challenge. Not to mention the green is only 29 yards deep and 25 yards wide. Head Pro, Tim Jackson, says to “play it cautious” and claims “it’s an outstanding par 5.”
