Famed golf course architect Ellis Maples designed our current layout in 1947 while working as Golf Course Professional and General Manager. The Club itself was founded in 1920 and records indicate there were nine holes with sand greens, however there are no records to indicate the original architect. Architect Bob Moore oversaw the current greens and fairways renovation in 1990.
The golf course measures 6045 yards from the back tees with small-elevated green complexes. Green speeds run from 8 to 11 on the stimp meter with Bent Grass G2 greens. Fairways are a hybrid 419 Bermuda. Golf course superintendent Pat Connell has been at New Bern Golf & Country Club for many years and maintains the immaculate condition of our Golf Course.
The Golf Professional Staff is headed by PGA Professional Alan Ferebee. The Pro Shop and course are open year round with the exception of Mondays. The Golf staff runs numerous tournaments throughout the year ranging from Member-Guest events to Couples Twilight fun nights. Golf lessons and clinics are run throughout the year with three great sports camps during the summer months for younger players and beginners.
