North Carolina Golf Course

The Country Club of Whispering Pines - River Course


The courses at the Country Club of Whispering Pines have two similar characteristics… variety.

The River Course (formerly the West) will remind you of the courses in the foothills of North Carolina. Though it plays much shorter 6521 from the back tees to 4653 to the senior ladies tees, the River Course demands more accuracy than distance. “Shot making” skills are necessary to navigate the terrain. With the elevation changes, towering oak trees that line the fairways and trees overhanging the small Bent Grass Greens and thicker rough make tee shots a premium.

Tranquil lakes and streams meander through most of the back nine. The legendary Ellis Maples, a Donald Ross prodigy, designed both courses with the ability and talent to create multiple themes on one property.
