From Murphy to Manteo as the saying goes.. , North Carolina is 560 miles wide, making it the widest state
east of the Mississippi. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Tennessee on the west, Virginia to
the north, and South Carolina and Georgia to the south, North Carolina is divided into three distinct
geographic areas: the Coastal Plain in the east, the Piedmont in the center, and Mountains in the
west. North Carolina is about as perfect as it gets for golfers. Few states can boast of being home to
coastal, heartland and true mountain golf courses. Add to this the great weather and world renowned "
Carolina Blue Skies" and well, you just can't get much closer to heaven on earth for golfers.
Golf the islands and marshlands of the coast, where you can stroll fairways that meander along the ocean, or
you can challenge the subtle dignity of the numerous courses that dot the famous Sandhills area, or
you can stand high on an elevated tee and revel in exquisite mountain scenery.
While North Carolina is located in a warm temperate zone, its diverse regions can experience a great
variety of weather conditions. While locations in the mountains may see average temperatures of 30
degrees Fahrenheit in January and 65 degrees Fahrenheit in August, locations in the coastal plains
can often experience January averages in the mid 40's and August averages in the 90's.
