Golfers and boaters alike would be very happy at Scotch Hall Preserve, a new 900-acre second home waterfront club community located on North Carolina's scenic Inner Banks, about 20 minutes from Edenton, North Carolina.
Recently they hired Nick Cassini, who was the top amateur golfer in the world in 2001 and went on to play in the PGA and European tours. Cassini is now the Director of Golf, overseeing Scotch Hall Preserve's Arnold Palmer Signature course, which opened in the spring of 2008 and was named to Golf Digest's Top 10 Best New Private Courses in 2009. Cassini has the happy task of organizing member events, helping to keep the course in top shape and introducing new owners to the course. It's a job with some pretty great views like the one from the 17th hole shown above.
Scotch Hall Preserve has also broken ground on its family retreat complex. The first phase includes a pool with cabanas, golf starter pavilion, an events and sports lawn, and will be surrounded by nine family retreat cottages. The cottages average 2,600 square feet, with double master suites and two guest rooms, and come fully furnished. Each cottage has a view of the golf course, and the water is less than a five-minute golf cart ride away. Two cottages are already underway, with a completed model to open this summer. Prices begin at $540,000.
