The Cardinal golf course offers an equitable test for golfers of all skill levels with its two lakes and meandering creeks that add both beauty and challenges to the course. One of 12 McConnell Golf courses in the region, you’ll notice the pure golf experience in the condition of the greens and the staff’s attention to detail.
The Cardinal Amateur was established by the Thomas and Bettie O’Briant Memorial Scholarship Fund in 1983. The field consists of 78 contestants, who are chosen among college level and mid-amateurs. Numerous former competitors are now on the PGA, Champions and Web.com tours. The contest has provided financial assistance to at least 36 young people through four years of college. These scholars, drawn from the Guilford County area, are selected primarily on the basis of need.
Our family-focused property includes active junior programs coupled with state-of-the-art fitness and aquatic facilities for the whole family to enjoy.
