2018 Golf Academy Dates:
Our River Course is ranked #25 and our Landing course is ranked #46.
Both of our courses were designed by nationally acclaimed architect Clyde Johnston of Hilton Head, South Carolina. Through Johnston’s incredible vision of the remarkable land given to him at River Landing, he carved out a masterpiece in the two 18-hole golf courses. His designs take full advantage of the unique natural beauty of our eastern coastal plain region, including scenic lakes, lush woodlands, and the peaceful Cape Fear River.
The stunning layout of these two 18-hole championship golf courses challenges the experienced golfer, while offering five sets of tees to make the courses enjoyable for any player type. Over the past year, River Landing has implemented various sustainability initiatives to help preserve our environmental resources for the next generation. We base our initiatives on an ideal from the Iroquois Indians which states, “Decisions are made considering the 7th generation in the future.” Through this initiative we hope to be the forward thinking leader in the golf industry.
