Golf on the Albemarle Sound

Because of Edenton’s mild winters and long summers, our golf courses are usually open year-round, giving you ample opportunity to work on your game from June to January.

In fact, for many people who move to Edenton, golf is one of the reasons to settle here.

There’s a wide range of courses to choose from, offering a wide variety of styles, settings, and difficulty levels.

So, if you visit Edenton this summer, you don’t have to drive long distances for some great golf!

Here are five great spots to get out and enjoy the beautiful North Carolina weather if you love to golf.

Links at Mulberry Hill

This is Edenton’s premier golf destination and a favorite golf spot for locals. This semi-private course, located right on the Albemarle Sound, has been around since 1962.

An Ellis Maples course, The Links at Mulberry Hill takes you through southern pines, over wetlands, and around ponds. You get views of the Albemarle Sound, the Mulberry Hill Inn, and more.

Members get access to a saltwater pool and enjoy a vibrant social scene to round out the golf experience and make membership even more useful if you have a family.
