Located on 15 acres off Highway 17 in Winnabow, The Golf Barn boasts a classic driving range, Toptracer range, 9-hole pitch and putt, and a killer 18-hole Putt-Putt course. Add in cold beer, food trucks, live music and fire pits, and you can see why it’s become a destination. Operations Manager Carrie Ray Davis tells us more:

Mr. Ed Burnett had the land since the 1990s. He built the Chicken Coop on it, a place where families came for things like hayrides and a pumpkin patch, and school groups came to learn about agriculture. It was beloved, but unfortunately, Hurricane Florence destroyed it. Sometimes, however, there’s a silver lining.

Toptracer technology

Toptracer technology allows you to compete with family and friends, and improve your game.

Ed’s son Edwin and his best friend since third grade, Brad Phillips, who is a PGA pro, started talking about creating a place that was based around golf, where there was something for everyone; families, couples, groups, young and old, could come and enjoy each other’s company. They pitched the idea to Mr. Burnett, who agreed to back them. Fast forward several years of hard work later, we were ready for our grand opening last March. It was cold, wet and windy that day, and we were astonished by the turnout! People were ready to have some fun – and so were we!

Our classic driving range is so popular that we’re already extending it by 40 feet, and our Toptracer range, with its state-of-the-art technology, lets you compete with family and friends on a variety of games. Millie’s Mini Golf is one of the hardest 18-hole Putt-Putt courses on the Carolina coast and you’ll love it – getting a hole in one is a real thrill! And you’ll get to meet ‘Hennifer Lopez’, the chicken! After dark the fun continues with our 9-hole glow-in-the-dark pitch and putt.

We want to be the heartbeat of the community, where everyone feels like this is their place, and we know that means providing excellent service and anticipating needs. We have six beers on tap and a selection of bottled beer, wine and Chuck’s homemade ice cream, as well as a live music and food truck schedule. During a recent Tap Takeover, our Marketing Director Becca organized a Putt-Putt challenge for the kids, with a treasure chest of prizes, then the adults and kids came together to play. Our mimosa club is a way for women to learn more about golf from a PGA pro and socialize. We’re planning a date night special, buy one get one free. And we’ll be hosting the Brunswick Gator Games and the Special Olympics.

There’s always something going on! Come join us for some screen-free time with family and friends – we just love seeing people having a good time!
