Just after opening several reviews were forwarded to golf friends around the state such as:
“This course is a must play. Lots of bunkers and lakes and undulating greens. A first class facility. – James Barnette”
“Best new course I’ve played in a long time. Fantastic greens and lots of bunkers. Worth a trip to the cute town of Beaufort. I signed up at their pro shop for email specials and they send great deals. – 1coastglfer”
“Rivals some of the better courses in Myrtle Beach. Aside from maybe Cypress Landing in Washington, NC, this is the best golf course in NC east of Raleigh. Water and sand traps galore with challenging winds. Bone up on your bunker play before making the trip. Awesome greens. Extremely long course from the tips. One of the best maintained courses I’ve ever seen. – Rod J”
Fans of nearby Brandywine Bay Golf Club and The Links Golf Club rave of how the North River Club meets or exceeds their expectations.
The North River Club’s Golf Course may be the only golf course in Beaufort, NC, but its quality and impact are without a doubt world class.
