Beau Rivage Golf & Resort
Carved out of long-needle pine forests, Beau Rivage’s 18-hole championship layout incorporates wooded hills, rolling dunes, undulating valleys and plenty of water in-play from estuaries of the neighboring Cape Fear River. With countless tight doglegs and narrow bermudagrass fairways, Beau Rivage will test one’s accuracy off the tee. The Beau’s renowned putting greens, made of TifEagle, an ultra-dwarf bermudagrass that thrives near the coast, are known for their consistent smoothness, speed and true roll. Come play and stay at Beau Rivage Golf & Resort. Online tee time booking is available.
Porters Neck Country Club
Designed by world-renowned golf architect Tom Fazio, Porters Neck Country Club's 4 Star, 18-hole golf course measures 7,100 yards. The club's beautiful par 72 course meanders through gently rolling terrain and offers both the amateur and professional golfer an enjoyable challenge. Typical of most Tom Fazio designs, the fairways are generous in width but with strategically placed fairway bunkers that will catch a wayward tee shot. The true test of Porters Neck Country Club is in the approach shots to the green.
Wilmington Municipal Golf Course
The Wilmington Municipal Golf Course was designed by Donald Ross in 1926 to provide the public with a quality, championship 18-hole golf course at affordable prices. A $1.5 million renovation restored the course to Donald Ross' original design by doubling the greens and restoring the bunkers, along with upgrading golf cart paths and the tee boxes. This revitalized gem is a must-play when visiting Wilmington.
Inland Greens is a 9 hole par 3 golf course set within a community park. After your round of golf, enjoy a game of bocce, stroll the pedestrian walking trail and visit the playground. Make a tee time by calling the course at (910) 765-7459.
