Country Club of Landfall

Landfall is home to some of the finest properties and lavish amenities in the area.

Beach-Close Living

Country Club of Landfall

The largest gated community in Wilmington, Landfall is home to some of the finest properties and lavish amenities in the area, boasting two championship golf courses designed by Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye, all located only a few short minutes from Wrightsville Beach.

Formerly known as Pembroke Jones Park, or Pembroke Park, Landfall’s earliest known owner was Pembroke Jones (1858-1919), a millionaire rice broker and a railroad investor known for such a lavish lifestyle that he and his wife Sarah were thought by many to be the inspiration for the phrase “keeping up with the Joneses.” Used originally as a hunting preserve, the property was home to a large mansion, or lodge, constructed in 1909, and the site of legendary gatherings with friends and other prominent members of local society.

​​​​​​​Four decades later, after Jones’ death, his granddaughter inherited the property and in the 1970’s, she and her husband founded Landfall development Co. The name paid tribute to the belief that Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazano had landed on or near the site during his 1524 voyage up the Atlantic Seaboard for King Francis I of France. The vessel that you see in the Landfall logo represents Verrazano’s ship off the coast. New Hanover County officials approved the project in 1984, with construction well under way in 1986. The first clubhouse opened in May 1989, followed by two complete golf courses, a sports center, and a non-denominational chapel.
