Golf by the Coast

Posted on 07/09/2013

A course only reachable by ferry, experience a round like none before at the distinguished Bald Head Island Country Club. A day not to be forgotten, the Bald Head Island Golf Course transcends nature and sport into one fulfilling event. The southernmost of North Carolina’s barrier islands, Bald Head Island is only accessible from Southport, NC via ferry. The country club itself is a marvelous array of southern beauty and exquisite charm. Native grasses encompass lagoons, dunes and ocean backdrops as you meander around one of the nation’s most tranquil golf courses.

Accolades abound, the course has a coveted 4.5 stars from Golf Digest’s Places to Play and recently was voted second best renovation in the country behind Pinehurst No 2. Designed by George Cobb and renovated by Tim Cate, Bald Head Island Golf Course opened for play in 1974 and has remained the standard for breathtaking beauty and challenging golf.

With a slope of 143 and course rating of 73.7, Bald Head Island Golf Course will not be mistaken for an easy course. Challenging and exhilarating do not let the conditions deter you, for playing the course, is only half of the experience. Foxes, egrets, ospreys and even alligators roam the island and at times, Bald Head Island can seem like a conservancy. If it’s a day of adventure, golf and tranquility you seek, then be sure to experience the Bald Head Island Golf Course. Just another reason to Visit Brunswick Beaches.
