The geography of North Carolina ranges from coastal islands and lowcountry waterways to the mountain heights in the west. The course layouts take advantage of each region’s attributes.
North Carolina’s Brunswick Islands is also known as North Carolina’s Golf Coast—and for good reason! More than 30 courses near the
beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, just north of Myrtle Beach, offer a variety of designs by world- renowned golf course architects in a naturally beautiful and uncrowded beach and golf vacation destination.
Brunswick Plantation is one of the most sought-after resorts along the whole Grand Strand. With on-site condominiums and 27 holes of golf, designed by Willard Byrd and Clyde Johnston, it’s considered golf central for the coastal area. Courses of note include Farmstead, with the area’s only par 6, the 767-yard 18th hole; Carolina National, an Audubon-Certified Sanctuary Golf Course designed by Fred Couples; the Arnold Palmer-designed River’s Edge; Cape Fear National, a Tim Cate design, named the 11th “Best Course You Can Play in North Carolina” by Golfweek; Compass Pointe, the newest course in the area; and Ocean Ridge Plantation, home to four exciting courses, known as the “big cats.”
The 18-hole golf course at Maggie Valley Club and Resort highlights some of Western North Carolina's most spectacular scenery. The front Valley Nine allows players to warm up before tackling the significantly more challenging Mountain Nine, which features an elevation rise of 800 feet and panoramas of the valley. And with on-site condos, it’s a great stay and play option.
