When the Meals on Wheels of the Sandhills hit a snag because its regular kitchen was temporarily unavailable, The Country Club of North Carolina (CCNC) was one of the local organizations or restaurants that stepped up to fill the void.
On Wednesday, CCNC and its Foundation prepared and donated more than 80 hot meals that were delivered to residents, many who are homebound.
Joining CCNC in assisting Meals on Wheels were Outback, FH Hospice, Covenant Fellowship Church, Chick-Fil-A and Vito’s.
CCNC, established in 1963, is a member-owned, gated residential community with 2,000 acres that features longleaf pines and three lakes and upscale tennis, fitness and swimming facilities. The membership is local and national.
Since 2003, it has been a certified member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program. The Dogwood Course was designed by Ellis Maples and Willard Byrd and renovated by Kris Spence in 2016. The Cardinal Course, designed by Willard Byrd and Robert Trent Jones Sr., completed a renovation by Arthur Hills in 2002.
