Brierwood Golf Club was the first course to open in Brunswick County in 1968, and its virtues have more than stood the test of time.
Long a favorite of savvy locals, Brierwood features generous fairways on a layout that plays 6,607 yards from the tips, providing players plenty of opportunity to recover from drives that don’t split the fairway. Playing through a coastal forest, Brierwood presents its most significant challenges on and around the greens, so make sure you tune-up the short game before teeing off.
The 17th hole, a par 3 that plays 179-yards from the tips, is the course’s signature hole, requiring a carry over water to a green surrounded by bunkers. Ponds and lakes that come into play on 16 of 18 holes create aesthetic beauty, and the abundant wildlife on the property, including blue heron, help provide serenity to an enjoyable round.
