On Dec. 29, 2021, Dallas-based ClubCorp officially assumed full ownership of the Corolla, NC county club, ending its 20-year lease of the property.
ClubCorp has operated The Currituck Club country club for over twenty years, and with ownership now in place, ClubCorp and The Currituck Club will move forward with a host of improvements and upgrades. Plans are being finalized, with more than $850,000 in capital investment planned for the Club in 2022.
“The new ownership structure enables an even brighter future for the members of this great club. Having full ownership means we can make long-term investments that benefit everyone that weren’t feasible with a lease structure,” said John Cegielski, Regional Vice President for the ClubCorp Atlantic region. “The Club delivers an exceptional experience today, and our long-term vision is to create an experience that has our members and guests raving.”
Nestled on the shores of Currituck Sound, members and residents alike have found The Currituck Club their home away from home and the place to play golf on a semi-private, world-class 18-hole course designed by the legendary Rees Jones.
Jones brought to life his philosophy of golf course design – create an environment for the game of golf that is challenging, fair, and aesthetically pleasing, using as his canvas the type of land where golf began. The result is a breathtaking layout stretching 6,885 yards of remarkably diverse coastal terrain, including sand dunes, wetlands, maritime forests, and rugged shorelines.
The Club’s championship course was also rated one of the “10 Best New Places You Can Play” by Golf magazine, and in May of 1999, Golf Digest recognized The Currituck Club as one of the “Top 25 Courses in North Carolina.”
A cornerstone of all the ClubCorp properties, the Currituck Club experience includes unique and compelling dining options. Hunt Club Tavern offers a casual dining experience for the whole family and is open to the public. Hunt Club Tavern provides an excellent atmosphere, whether you are catching lunch while on the links or looking for an enjoyable meal.
The Currituck Club country club offers the perfect spot for a round of golf, dining, corporate entertaining, golf outings, and private parties, and residents of the surrounding Currituck Club community enjoy seven tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts, a kids’ playground, fitness center, bike trails, lawn games, beach shuttle, and more.
