The countdown is on. If you’re a golf fan, you know the PGA Tour comes to Wilmington, NC during May 1st-7th for the Wells Fargo Championship. This is the first time in over 40 years that a PGA Tour sanctioned event will return to the city of Wilmington. “The Wells Fargo Championship has become recognized as a premier tournament and a favorite among the players since it made its debut on the PGA Tour in 2003”, said PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem. This much anticipated event will be held at Eagle Point Golf Club.

Wilmington is only about 30 miles north of Bald Head Island. You can plan a trip to enjoy the secluded island and relax before the big tournament. Take advantage of our Stay and Play Golf Package and get a special rate on your accommodations as well as golf. The Bald Head Island Club Course has a slope rating of 143 and course rating of 73.7. 

Wake up at one of our luxury premier properties and have breakfast on a spacious balcony watching the waves crash. Spend the afternoon relaxing on the beach or hitting the links. You can rent a kayak and tour the creeks before eating lunch at Delphina Cantina. Book a massage or facial at the Island Retreat Spa and feel completely renewed and refreshed. Finish the day out with a family dinner at home or dine at Mojo’s on the Harbor watching the boats come in during a stunning sunset. 

Now that you’ve had your downtime and lasting memories on Bald Head Island, head over to Wilmington and enjoy another charming coastal destination. Bobby Long, Eagle Point Golf Club’s current president, says over 940 million households will be watching Wilmington for the tournament. They expect at least 30,000 spectators during the event. Make your plans to see the action up close and book your Bald Head Island getaway today.
