Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated; it satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening – and it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.
It is no surprise that golf is one of the main attractions at Albemarle Plantation. Professionals and amateurs alike can agree that the Sound Golf Links can’t be beat! So dust off those clubs, break out your best collared shirt and head out ot the links!
It isn’t hard to see why Golf Digest Magazine gave The Sound Golf Links four and a half stars, the highest rating in the region! Even if you are new to the game or not a huge enthusiast of the sport, the incredible views and landscape will hold your attention. The course is the vision of master architect Dan Maples and will not disappoint even the most seasoned golfers.
The views include breathtaking shots of the Albemarle Sound and lush wetlands and marsh. You’ll be mesmerized by the water views and aquatic sounds and also gorgeous pines and cypress trees. The natural beauty that surrounds you will be enough to make you want to play round after round! The three finishing holes alone will keep you coming back! Maples managed to create a course that is challenging and dynamic for even the most advanced players but also enjoyable and playable by beginners. The staff at The Sound is also available to help you every step of the way whether you are planning to entertain guests, host a work gathering or put together an entire tournament.

We would be remiss not to mention the newly renovated Clubhouse Restaurant located on the 18th hole that is enough to make you glad you signed up to play!
