Old North State Club (Golf)

Home to the Pfeiffer men's and women's golf team, this masterpiece located on a peninsula in Badin Lake has attracted praise from golfers from across the nation, and in its opening year, was awarded the #2 ranking in Golf Digest's "Best New Private Courses in America." It's currently ranked 3rd in the state for private courses.

The course is a Par 72 and 7,102 yards.

"The best par three and best finishing hole in North Carolina."
