Owner of Charlotte country club adds eastern NC golf course to portfolio

CHARLOTTE — McConnell Golf has closed on its acquisition of a longtime golf club in eastern North Carolina.

The Raleigh company that owns and operates private clubs, including one in Charlotte, said May 31 that it has acquired the Wilson Country Club following weeks of negotiations.

The course sits at 4509 Country Club Drive on the northern edge of Wilson. The club’s origins date to 1915 on the site that is now home to Willow Springs Country Club. Wilson Country Club became so popular that it moved to its current location in 1973 to accommodate a larger membership base.
