Beau Rivage Golf & Resort Information:
Beau Rivage Golf & Resort Description:
Beau Rivage Golf & Resort is an award-winning Wilmington golf facility (voted Best Golf Course by StarNews ShorePicks 2016-17, Encore Magazine 2017) that has become a popular tee time destination for players from across the country. As the only course in Wilmington with on-site guest suite, Beau Rivage is known for its excellent stay and play packages as well as a fantastic course for daily public play. Beau Rivage provides an unmatched golf experience that also offers visitors overnight accommodations at a location convenient to the historic river district in downtown Wilmington as well as the beautiful surrounding beaches.
For a single round, Beau Rivage Golf & Resort is where players can make their escape from the flat terrain of the region and enjoy a refreshingly unique round. Occupying the highest point in the low-lying coastal city gives Beau Rivage some unexpected elevation changes and a major dose of character. Winding its way through a housing development, wildlife preserves and wetlands, the course has a startling variety of holes. So many things make Beau Rivage memorable, from the meticulous landscaping, sprawling clubhouse and full practice facilities, to the unconventional layout that has no look-alike holes, to the hawks, foxes and alligators that one might encounter. The course also drains very quickly, a blessing in an area that can receive a lot of rainfall in a short amount of time.
Amid wooded hills and aesthetically designed lakes, Beau Rivage’s 18-hole championship layout (rated 4 Stars by Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play) ranks among the finest on the coast. Carved out of long-needle pine forests, “The Beau” incorporates rolling dunes, undulating valleys, deep bunkers and plenty of water in-play from estuaries of the neighboring Cape Fear River. Attacking flags from the rough and pine straw can be a perilous undertaking. With countless tight doglegs and narrow, bending Bermudagrass fairways, the golf course will certainly test one’s accuracy off the tee. Best of all, Beau Rivage’s manicured tif-Eagle greens are renowned for consistent smoothness, speed, and true roll. With all the ups and downs, blind approach shots, ample natural hazards and slick putting surfaces, Beau Rivage offers even the avid player a challenging round. It knocks in at 6,527 yards with a 72.9 course rating and a 138 slope, accurate indicators of the golf course’s ability to yield low scores yet also bedevil players each time they come to play.
Beau Rivage Golf & Resort also offers two hard-surface tennis courts, an outdoor Olympic swimming pool with 65 ft. Tiki bar, signature “19th hole” Veranda Bar & Grill, conference room, business center and an elegant ballroom on the top floor of the clubhouse overlooking the course and grounds. Aside from golf and lodging, Beau Rivage provides an unforgettable coastal setting for destination weddings, big banquets, corporate meetings, and other special gatherings. The convenience of on-site suites, versatile banquet facilities and resort amenities just steps away create limitless ways to customize events at a quiet, secluded retreat between the Cape Fear and the Atlantic.
