Crow Creek Golf course in Calabash, NC opened in February 2000 and is celebrating it’s 15th anniversary. From it’s opening, this Rick Robbins design has drawn praise for style of play, conditioning, and value. One of the busiest courses year round, the focus on customer service is apparent from the moment one arrives at the bag drop. Maintaining this level of quality in service and conditioning for 15 years has been ingrained in every person involved with the course. From the hands-on ownership, to the professional staff, walking into the pro shop and restaurant and onto the course rivals any private facility in the eastern United States….and Crow Creek is open to the public. But, don’t make the mistake of thinking Crow Creek tee times are automatic. Some advance planning is necessary to get a group round during peak periods.
It has been said that the mark of a well-kept golf course is how if fairs during the toughest times of the year. When many courses seem to “hang on” during the winter, Crow Creek shines like the gem that it is. The lush ryegrass overseeded fairways are spectacular for winter play. The contrasting striped, bright green fairways with their artistic shapes against the dormant bermuda rough make for one of the more scenic rounds anywhere. This is why every golf who plays Crow Creek comes away planning their next trip back.
Crow Creek Golf Attention to Detail
The focus and attention to detail is evident throughout every aspect of the facility and it’s operation. The course recently underwent a complete bunker renovation. In preparation for the renovation, the staff experimented with various types of sands. They brought in amateurs and professional golfers to hit out of each type of sand while flooding the bunkers with hurricane-equivalent saturation. They actually timed the drainage with each type of sand before making their decision. It is doubtful any golfer will experience and unplayable bunker at Crow Creek. That was the goal, and not just for playability, but for pace of play as well.
The same attention to detail on the golf course is found in every aspect of the facility…especially in the restaurant. Offering an extensive menu of exquisitely prepared breakfast and lunch items, has many locals making Crow Creek their choice for regular dining. The restaurant is equipped to handle small and large catered parties of all types with their capable hand-picked professional staff ready to serve in the normal Crow Creek fashion.
Crow Creek Golf Head PGA Professional Jimmy Biggs and staff intend to make every golf experience top notch. They even offer golf lessons for golfers of every skill level including tune ups and complete lesson packages. The practice facility is designed to allow golfers to work on all aspects of their game while enjoying the same conditions found on the course. There are no weak areas at this facility.
