Winding River Plantation

Winding River is a private gated community surrounded by meandering Marsh Savannahs of the Lockwood Folly River and located just minutes from downtown Southport, North Carolina. This environmentally green community is acknowledged as one of the country’s top places to retire and is home to the award winning Carolina National Golf Course. This unique 27 hole course designed by Fred Couples is one of a few in North Carolina to be an Audubon certified sanctuary.
