The modernization overseen by Raleigh-based club owner McConnell Golf marks a return to glory for the Tom Fazio-designed, lakeside gemRALEIGH, N.C. (November 2023) — When the subject arises of North Carolina’s highest-ranked golf courses renowned for their surroundings, Old North State Club in New London generally resides near the top of most lists. Designed by award-winning architect Tom Fazio and debuting in 1991, the golf course at Old North State Club perennially enjoys a top-10 ranking in the state, teeing up picturesque views of Badin Lake, the surrounding Uwharrie Point peninsula, wildlife, nature and more. Large and undulating Bentgrass greens — the standard in the area when growing new greens 30 years ago — adorned the course until this year, when Raleigh-based McConnell Golf funded a $3 million project to replace all the green structures with Bermudagrass.
The recently completed restoration project also included rebuilding all the bunkers on the golf course, tree work, cart-path repairs, and some tee work, which added approximately 160 yards to the course.
