One of the best kept secrets is out and Carolina Trace Country Club is honored to be one of the top private golf courses in the Raleigh triangle area. Between Raleigh and Pinehurst, Carolina Trace is home to two world class championship golf courses both designed by legendary architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. The Lake Course is situated among our 318 acre lake, offering captivating views throughout the round. The elevation changes on our scenic par 3s are like none in the area. The Creek Course brings character to Carolina Trace with its undulating fairways and meandering creeks fit for a mountain course.
Originally a nine hole course, the Creek Course opened for play in 1979 as Carolina Trace’s second eighteen. The narrow Bermuda fairways wind through the Carolina Trace community with many shot-making challenges, coupled with an enjoyable golfing experience. The third hole on Creek was the only hole in North Carolina to be included in Golf Course Home Magazine’s Dream Residential 18 Golf Holes. The 18th hole sits at the course’s most dramatic juncture on a slice of land surrounded by water on three sides and a tight approach on the other. Due to the success of the greens renovation to the Lake Course, the Creek Course will receive the same treatment during the summer of 2018 with a conversion to Mini-Verde Bermuda grass.
Carolina Trace has hosted a plethora of events including the Women’s US Open Qualifier, Men’s Us Amateur Qualifier and the American Junior Golf Association Tour, along with dozens of other local golf outings. Carolina Trace continues to provide a world class experience to everyone who takes that first swing.
