The first of the two 18-hole courses that make up the Carolina Trace private golf community is the Lake Course. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the Lake Course opened for play in 1971. Winding around the 315-acre Lake Trace, the Lake Course’s captivating views can make maintaining focus on one’s golf game exceedingly difficult.
Each hole provides five sets of tees, Black, Blue, White, Gold, and Red, for players of all skill levels. The Black tees are sloped at 139 and the Red tees at 124. The generous-sized fairways are Bermuda grass with the greens featuring Mini-Verde, an ultra-dwarf Bermuda. The Lake Course greens were renovated with Mini-Verde in 2011.
The second eighteen at this North Carolina private golf community is the Creek Course, which opened for play in 1979. 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.
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.
