We found the plantation in 2005 and knew from the beginning that this was the place to live. The marina and golf is what brought us here, but we also realized that the friendships we have made since we arrived are now the most important. What a fun place to live!

The Sound Golf Links at Albemarle Plantation is a classic Dan Maples design.

The Maples family name has a long and proud history of superior golf in the Carolinas. Dan Maples is a third generation golf course designer - his grandfather Frank was construction superintendent for the first 4 Donald Ross designs at Pinehurst, and his father Ellis designed Pinehurst #5. Dan has continued that tradition with some of the best courses in the Carolinas, from the high country (Grandfather Mountain) to the coast (Oyster Bay, Heritage).

The Sound Golf Links has earned many accolades, including having been rated 4 1/2 stars by Golf Digest. But the biggest accolade is the pride the members take in the course, and how passionate they are about golf at Albemarle Plantation.

World Class Golf

The Sound Golf Links at Albemarle Plantation continues the Maples tradition of blending challenge with enjoyment, and aesthetics with playability. Given a rolling piece of terrain right on Albemarle Sound (the three finishing holes in particular offer compelling views), Maples crafted a course that fits the land and fits the community. Holes meander through lush Low Country marshland and forests of towering pines and moss-draped cypress, creating a spectacular backdrop for a fun, challenging round.

Albemarle Plantation isn’t your typical private, gated, waterfront golf community. As an established place to enjoy life, Albemarle Plantation is more than the sum of its considerable parts. Some key points of differentiation for you to think about as you plan your visit.
