Creek Golf Course North Carolina Sandhills, NC

Creek Course

Creek Golf Course North Carolina SandhillsThe second 18 holes at this North Carolina private golf community is the Creek Course, which opened for play in 1979. With plenty of trees and a creek that runs intermittently through the course, the Creek Course offers a challenging landscape and beautiful views. Our members love playing on this golf course time after time.

Designed by legendary architect Robert Trent Jones Sr., the Creek Course features dramatic elevation changes, rolling terrain, and a meandering creek interspersed among the 18 holes. The narrow fairways are Bermuda grass with the greens featuring Crenshaw Bent grass. We ensure that our courses are always maintained, giving you the best playing conditions.

Course Details

The Creek Course winds through the beautiful community of Carolina Trace with many shot-making challenges, coupled with an enjoyable golfing experience. As with the Lake Course, each hole on Creek provides five sets of tees: black, blue, white, gold and red, for players of all skill levels. The black tees are sloped at 132 and the red tees at 124.

The 3rd hole of the Creek Course was the only hole in North Carolina to be included in Golf Course Home magazine’s Dream Residential 18 Golf Holes. Other notable holes on the Creek Course are the 4th, 15th and 16th holes, which requires careful navigation of the streams and ponds, while the 18th green sits at one of the most dramatic junctures on the property—a slice of land surrounded on three sides by water.

    The staff and clubhouse were excellent - really nice bathrooms. The course was in great shape, including the high volume of sand traps.
