Bladen County has one of the premier golf courses in North Carolina in Vineyard Golf At White Lake.
Before Vineyard Golf was developed by Bill Augustine a few years back golfers from Bladen County often ventured to the North Carolina-South Carolina coast to play some of the better courses in North Carolina. One of these complexes was Sea Trail.
Recently, there has been a change in ownership of this development. Sea Trail Investments LLC has acquired the Rees Jones, Willard Byrd, and Dan Maples golf courses and commercial property in Sea Trail, a North Carolina resort less than an hour from Bladen County.
Robert Hill and Donald Bean, co-owners of Riptide Builders, and Parker Smith, owner of Golf Trek, are partners in Sea Trail Investments LLC.
