Eagle Point Golf Club is the most exclusive golf club in eastern North Carolina and the Tom Fazio-designed course opened for play in May 2000.

Routed close to the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic further east, the Eagle Point layout can stretch to 7,170 yards from the tips and it plays tough when there’s a freshening wind. If you are lucky enough to receive an invite to play this top-notch course, then carefully choose your tee box from the five available to ensure maximum enjoyment.

With multi-tiered greens, which often reach Augusta-like stimp speeds, you’ll need your best putting game. You might consider taking a caddy as one of Eagle Point’s selling points is that it’s the only private club in the south east of the Tar Heel State to offer a full daily caddy service.

In addition to the main 18-hole course, there is a 9-hole par three executive course on the 245-acre Eagle Point property, which serves as the perfect warm up ahead of the real thing. In 2017, the Wells Fargo Championship moved from Quail Hollow to Eagle Point which showcased the club to a world audience.

This is a disappointing Tom Fazio layout which didn’t impress. It’s certainly decent, but not the best course in his portfolio. The club is also going through a multi-year bunkering project which will put a gravel base in each to prevent against issues with rainfall. Apparently the bunkers were problematic each year which was a result of poor planning while the course was being developed. The front nine has too many holes that run parallel to each other, which I feel diminishes the opportunity to introduce interesting doglegs within reason. My least favourite aspect of the course was how irregular and manufactured the course looks. The land around Wilmington, NC is flat, however dozens of bulldozers were brought in to move earth and create mounding which doesn’t feel natural. Taking the Wells Fargo Championship away from Quail Hollow and giving it to Eagle Point is a disastrous decision. The club is very private and doesn’t lack lavishness; however the course doesn’t leave you wanting for more.
