NCAA Division I Golf Championship Coming to Landfall, NC

Posted by

Wilmington, NC and the surrounding area (perhaps  even the entire eastern seaboard and further) are anxiously anticipating the start of the 2010 NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championships to be held at the Country Club of Landfall May 18 through 21.  The Country Club of Landfall is a focal point of the Landfall community and one of the premier clubs in North Carolina.  The exceptional female golfers can look forward to playing the beautiful but demanding Pete Dye Course.  The Dye course, Landfall’s original golf course, was completed in 1987 and was completely refurbished a few years ago.  Characteristic of Mr. Dye’s signature styling, the course consists of rolling hills and undulating fairways, framing picturesque shots into challenging greens guarded by white sand bunkers and fresh water ponds.

Karen Thompson

     We are very pleased to announce the addition of Karen  Thompson to the Landfall Realty sales team. 

     In 1991 Karen moved to Wilmington where she had enjoyed many happy vacations during her younger years.  After meeting and marrying her husband, the two found that the perfect place to raise a family was in Landfall and she (as well as all of our agents) can tell you all about our community from her personal experience.  Karen and her family enjoy all the activities and events that Landfall presents every year and finds that the safety of Landfall’s neighborhoods for the many children here is one the biggest benefits. 

     Karen is very active in community work in Wilmington and volunteers with her children’s schools, teaches Sunday school, and serves on the Board of Friends of UNCW. 

     Karen comes to Landfall Realty with a wealth of experience in many areas of real estate including new home sales.  Another area of specialization for Karen is in relocations which will be a huge asset to those of our clients who come here from outside of the Coastal Carolina area.

     We look forward to having Karen incorporate her knowledge and expertise into our office and invite you to stop by and meet our newest agent the next time you’re in the Wilmington, NC area.
