Northgreen Country Club deals
Northgreen Country Club once was the place to play golf in Rocky Mount.
The ACC Championships were held at Northgreen, where players like David Duval, Fred Funk and Stewart Cink roamed the fairways and greens.
After a period of lackluster maintenance, new owners Wayne Holloman and his dad Ed are in the process of putting Northgreen back in its place as a premiere golf club in this area. They've refurbished the greens, which are top-shelf now.
And the fairways are looking better than ever.
To be sure, more work needs to be done, but it's getting there.
If you haven't been to Northgreen in awhile, you should definitely check it out.
Right now, Wayne is considering offering a platinum membership at the club for $199 a month. The price would include unlimited green fees and cart fees, as well as a free bucket of range balls per round.
"By rack price, you would only have to play six rounds in a month to break even on the deal," Wayne said in an email. "This is a great deal, and I am considering it and will probably give it a try if I get enough interest."
Contact Wayne via email if you're interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
Even if you're not interested in a membership, you should play the course. You'll be surprised if you haven't played it since the Hollomans took over.
