Carolina National was designed in 1998 as an Audubon International Certified Sanctuary Golf Course for the environmental stewardship exhibited in its building and maintenance.
Set along the Lockwood Folly River with its golden marshlands, Fred Couples designed this challenging golf course for players of all levels.
