North Carolina is considered a state with great golf venues, and Kinston is lucky enough to be home to four of them. The city courses – Falling Creek Golf Course, Kinston Country Club, Bill Fay Park Golf Course and Cutter Creek Golf Club – will challenge any level of golfer.

Falling Creek Country Club, which opened in 1967, is an 18-hole public course that stretches 6,523 yards and is a par 71 from the longest tees. Noted golf course architect Gene Hamm designed the greens. 

Kinston Country Club is a private course with a full membership priced at $1,750. Amenities include an 18-hole championship golf course along with four tennis courts with stadium lighting, an aquatics center with poolside dining, a clubhouse with large ballroom and a restaurant with a top-flight chef on staff.

Bill Fay Park Golf Course is a ninehole club with all holes par 3s and less than 150 yards in length. The public course is open all year and includes sand traps, rolling greens and a small clubhouse with food. However, the prices are the most attractive part of Bill Fay Park. Nine holes costs $2, or golfers can play all day for $4.

Cutter Creek Golf Club is carved into the rolling terrain of the countryside and features five tee boxes. Well-known architect Bob Moore designed the 18-hole public attraction, and the signature hole at Cutter Creek is No. 3. It is nicknamed “Beast of the East” because it is a par 3 that stretches a long 220 yards.
