    The Jack Nicklaus Signature Course opened in April 2005. Routed through forests, streams and meadows, the golf course at Walnut Cove  has been described by TOUR professionals as “perfect,” “flawless,” and “somewhere between great and spectacular.” Charles Warren, PGA Tour Professional, noted that “Walnut Cove is the most visually appealing golf course in the Carolinas. It has one of the best set of Par 3’s I have ever played. It is one of the best conditioned golf courses I have ever seen or played in my years on the Nationwide Tour and PGA Tour.”
