Tobacco Road Golf Club

Tobacco Road Golf Club was built on land tended by the weather-worn hands of tobacco farmers, later shaped and moved through mining and sand excavation before finally being crafted and molded by an artist’s imagination and the revolutionary eye of the late Mike Strantz. When Tobacco Road was little more than a walking path through an expended sand quarry, Strantz said he “knew immediately it could be something not only spectacular, but also unique.”

Established in 1998, Tobacco Road is younger than many of the courses it has surpassed in its accumulation of accolades. Architect Mike Strantz was a student of the Golden Age Architects whose turn of the century designs set the standards while contributing to the development of the principles of golf course architecture and design. The seamless incorporation of Golden Age “conventional features,” like the elegant arc of a fairway set against the contrast of a sandy waste area, with the bolder design features most often seen on the British Isles, are where Strantz showcased his true artistic talent.

Strantz found his canvas, not on the seaside cliffs of the British Isles but rather in the remnants of a sand quarry in the Sandhills of North Carolina. He allowed the rolling terrain to evolve into one of golf’s most uncompromising designs. Beyond the panoramic views and stunning vistas lies a course that tests all of a player’s faculties. Five sets of tees allow a player to undertake the course at a level worthy of their skill; however, one should always keep in mind – it was Strantz’s goal to test “a player’s eye, determination, and wits.”

Carolina Trace Country Club

Carolina Trace Country Club: One club. One community. All together.
Carolina Trace Country Club boasts two 18-hole golf courses designed by famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. Both offer championship golf with vistas of Lake Trace and soaring Carolina pines.

CTCC offers all amenities of a full-service private club including golf, tennis, swimming, state of the art fitness facilities, and fine or casual dining. A lively social scene provides friendly fun for families, couples, and singles while providing affordable resort-style living. The Sanford Herald's February 10, 1969, headline, "Giant Golf-Recreational Site Planned for Area," was a shock. The golf course and dam were started in 1970, the year when the first lots (in North Shore) were sold. Three lotteries, the idea taken from such quiz shows as "The $64,000 Question," decided who received which lot. Robert Trent Jones, Sr., designed the two eighteen-hole golf courses, the Lake and the Creek, completed in 1971 and 1979, respectively. He also wanted his courses to be "watered by their own lakes," as Lake Trace (covering 300+ acres) attests. Escalante Golf, Inc purchased Carolina Trace Country Club from the membership in July of 2014 with the intention of continuing the Club with the vision of its original founders. Through their expertise in golf management and their country club business model, they will grow, expand, and refine the Club for its members and community.
