The centerpiece of Brick Landing Plantation community is the 18-hole championship golf course known by locals as “The Brick”. The Brick is considered by many to be one of the area’s finest layouts and is a challenge for players of all levels of ability. The layout of the golf course takes full advantage of the terrain’s natural beauty as it weaves throughout the marshes and Intracoastal waterway. You’ll encounter a wide variety of wildlife, natural vegetation, saltwater marshes and hardwood forests which are home to historic oak trees as you play your way around the course, which itself winds through the plantation golf community,
The two things that many golfers remember most about their round at Brick Landing Plantation are the fairways and the greens. The fairways have a lot of roll to them and the occasional uneven lie is not an odd occurrence. They are well maintained and manicured and lead to Sunday Bermuda grass greens that produce consistently true rolls. The breeze that drifts in off the ocean is quite refreshing on those hot, summer days and can sometimes wreak havoc with your game.
Most Memorable Hole: Number 4: Par 4, 289 yards. If I were naming holes, this one would be called “Shotmaker.” A long iron or hybrid is all you need off the tee. Just be sure to hit it straight; there’s water on either side of the fairway. A good tee shot will leave a short iron or wedge back over water to a green protected by water in front and on the right. You’ll need two well-placed shots to have a chance at par or better.
Before your round (or after if you had a rough day) be sure to hit some balls on the driving range. Brick Landing Plantation has an outstanding practice facility located across the street from the pro shop. In addition to a full-length driving range where you can hit every club in the bag, there’s a short game area as well as a large practice green.
The Pro Shop at Brick Landing Plantation offers golfers some of the best equipment and apparel choices in the area, all designed to complement your game. They also have a wide selection of golf balls from all of your favorite manufacturers.
Outside of golf, Brick Landing is known as an outstanding wedding venue. The event staff will take care of all of the elements on your dream day and let you focus on your guests. The Intracoastal Waterway offers a beautiful view while Ocean Isle Beach serves as a stunning backdrop; it’s a view unrivaled on the Carolina coast. All weddings are catered by ART Catering & Events.
The View Restaurant stands in a league of its own. Locals and visitors alike routinely visit The View to enjoy fresh seafood and exciting American traditional dishes with a focus on fresh and local cuisine. Be sure to check out their famous Sunday Brunch too.

Last Word: At 6,576 yards, Brick Landing Plantation isn’t going to overwhelm a long ball hitter, but, at the same time, it’s not going to play to their strengths either. Several par 4s measure less than 350 yards, which will probably take driver out of their hands. On several of these holes, water dictates the shot and shape you need to hit off the tee; it’s more about shot placement and distance control than brute strength. There are a few holes where hitting the ball a long way off the tee can help, most notably on Number 17. At 444 yards from the White Tees, most double-digit handicappers will consider a bogey a good score.
