Best Golf Courses Near Wilson, NC
Most people who visit Wilson, located 45 miles east of Raleigh, make a beeline for the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park that contains 30 whirligig kinetic spinning sculptures made from salvaged metal. Reflectors on the sculptures permit the park to be a nighttime attraction, enabling golfers to make full use of their tee times at Wilson’s municipal layout, Wedgewood Public Golf Course and Wilson Springs Country Club, a vintage layout that delights players of all abilities with its flat, easily walkable and its generous tree-lined fairways. Jaunts to Rocky Mount to play Belmont Lake Golf Club and Goldsboro for Lane Tree Golf Club, both of which are highly rated, are well worth the effort. Afterward, back in town, many golfers can be found toasting their rounds at Brewmasters, which features a selection of hundreds of craft beers.
