Porters Neck is routed through a residential development on the north side of Wilmington off Rt 17 at Kirkland.
It's a private course, but they do allow outside play if you make arrangements in advance. It's a Tom Fazio design of 7,112 yards, 138 slope from the back tees, with a variety of shorter tee boxes. Parkland style layout with tree lined, but open fairways off the tee, and Fazio's trademark bunkers littering the landing areas and greenside. Very upscale feel to the course, the facilities, and service is top notch.
