New Bern's Golf Hotel

The Zigler is New Bern's golf Hotel

Emerald Golf course

The Zeigler is conveniently located close to many of the areas top golf courses. The picture above shows Zeigler owner Steve Tyson teeing off at the first hole at the Emerald.

The Emerald is a semi private club and is open to the public. Located about 2 miles from the Zeigler this is a really nice Rees Jones design and was voted one of the top 50 courses in North Carolina in 1992.

This course has a nice practice facility and is usually in top notch condition. It is a challenging layout that puts a premium on driving it in the fairway. The greens are pretty good size and are receptive to approach shots. This course has many challenging holes but the 18th stands out. From the blue tees it is around 415 yards with water down the entire right side and out of bounds down the left. No bail out shots here and the drive is a reall gut checker.

Curtis Strange held a celebrity fundraiser for the Shiner's at the Emerald from 1990-2000. I saw Tiger Woods, Fred Couples, Curtis Strange, Arnold Palmer, among others play during this time.

Located at 5000 Clubhouse Drive The Emerald is about 2 miles from the Zeigler and 4 miles from historic downtown New Bern.

Riverbend Golf Course

Riverbend is located about 12 minutes from the Zeigler and 15 minutes from historic downtown New Bern. The course was designed and built by Gene Hamm in the early 1970's. Gene built numerous other golf courses in Myrtle Beach and Pinehurst.

Riverbend under went a makeover about 5 years ago. The fairways and greens were completely redone and the clubhouse was torn down and rebuilt. The result is a fine facility that is kept in great shape.

Number 18 is the signature hole at Riverbend. A 235 yard drive  will give you about a 7 iron or so into a somewhat deep but narrow green. Don't slice your tee shot as there is water all the way down on the right side. Par is a great score on this hole. The toughest hole to me is number 12. This is a long dogleg left with a pond about 230 out that forces the long hitters to lay up or play away from the green with a cut drive. Here you have got to hit a great drive or par is next to impossible.

Riverbend is a fine golf course and is usually easy to get a tee time.

Carolina Pines

Located about 10 miles from New Bern Carolina Pines was built in the early 1970's and is short but interesting and fun to play course. Green fees and a cart are only $28. That is very reasonable for 18 holes of golf.

Number 15 is the signature hole. This hole is a relatively easy par 5 with the green framed in the background by the beautiful Neuse River. This is one of the most scenic holes in North Carolina. Number 2 is a long par 4 with a deep ravine in the front of the green. Don't go over the green as the steep slope from back to front makes a chip shot dangerous. Number 2 is in my opinion the most difficult par 4 in the New Bern area.

Quaker Neck

Located about 23 minutes from the Zig Hotel, this course can be rough at times, but it is interesting and has some challenging holes some with a little elevation change which is unusual for Eastern NC.

A cart and green fees will set you back around $25 dollars and is reasonable by any standards. The course does not get a lot of play and the greens can be spotty at times. But for $25 what do you want?

About the Ziegler Hotel

Best Hotel in New Bern NC

The Ziegler Hotel is an icon in New Bern NC. The
2-story house was built in the 1920's and served as a residence for Mr. and Mrs. Ziegler. During World War 2 The Zeigler's would rent out rooms in their house to young Marines stationed at Cherry Point.

 Mr. Ziegler had a watch repair shop in the garage located in the back yard. He had back surgery in the early 1950's and as a result of complications during the surgery was permanently paralyzed.

Needing extra income Mrs. Ziegler converted the garage into two motel rooms. Her success with renting those two motel rooms convinced her to eventually build two cottages and nine more motel rooms. At the time, motel rooms in Craven County were scarce. That was long before the days of large franchise hotels and motels, and she kept had no trouble keeping all the rooms occupied..

Mr. Zeigler passed away in the 1960's. Mrs. Zeigler lived in the house and operated the motel until they passed away at age 101.

By the mid 1950's the Ziegler Hotel was perhaps New Bern's premier place to stay. Anyone over 40 and born  in New Bern NC will probably remember the large neon sign, shown below, that stood on the The Original Sign for the Ziegler Motelcorner of Highway 17 and Eight Street and guided folks to the Ziegler Motel. The Ziegler is located 2 blocks south of Highway 17 in New Bern North Carolina. During the 1940s, '50s, and '60s, Highway 17 was the principle route on the East Coast for those heading North and South. The neon sign  snagged many travelers.

After Mrs. Ziegler passed away in the 1990's the motel was sold and maintenance was neglected. The charming old hotel lost her luster and was quickly fading into the sunset.

However the Ziegler Hotel was purchased in 2007 by the Tyson Group who are committed to once again making her New Bern's premier place to stay.

Remodeled Hotel Rooms, New Beds, Mini-Fridge/Freezer, Microwave, Coffee Pot, Wireless Internet, HDTV TV's, Outdoor Charcoal Grills and 2 New Hotel Suites with full kitchens and stack washer/dryers.
