Echo Farms Golf and Country Club is a semi-private country club that features an enticing 18-hole course in the heart of the inland Cape Fear region. Featuring Tiff-Eagle Bermuda grass greens and Bermuda grass fairways, and designed by golf architects Gene Hamm and Ian Scott, this inviting course is challenging enough to appeal to both experts and beginners who want to enjoy a full tour of southern North Carolina’s acclaimed golfing scene.
The course is open to members, residents and non-residents alike, and veers through a wealth of local foliage as well as both manmade and natural obstacles, like local ponds and towering tree lines. Located along US Highway 421, in between the center of Wilmington and Carolina Beach, the course is accessible to visitors who are staying in both the Downtown Wilmington region and along the coastline, and is within a few miles’ drive of both destinations. Avid golfers can sign up for a little pro instruction or for one of the club’s regular tournaments, while more casual visitors can relax and cap off a nice day on the greens with a cold drink and a sandwich or appetizer at the 19thHole Grill. For members and visitors alike, Echo Farms Golf and Country Club delivers a fine and inherently coastal golfing experience.
