Junior ROTC Military Ball - Huge Success! - An Eventective User from Carolina Trace Country Club

Simply said - this is the go-to place for formal events in the local area. After our second time in booking the club to host our event, I can honestly say that we will be annual customers for as long as Carolina Trace is willing to have us! The event coordinator does the hard work and makes planning for our event beyond easy. The catering staff is first class and the food is delicious. Pricing is more than reasonable.

Outstanding "Full House"Dinner Event at CTCC - An Eventective User from Sanford, NC

Our Lee County Community Foundation has honored our Lee County Man and Woman of the Year since 2012 with a dinner. In March 2017, we had almost 200 people for cocktails, dinner, and a program at the Carolina Trace County Club. CTCC is absolutely the best and most up-to-date venue for small to large events in central North Carolina. CTCC Event Director Bridget Klish and the entire staff provided the best event we have ever had with outstanding on-time service throughout the evening. CTCC Chef Bob Hicks and his kitchen staff served us the best meal ever, resulting in smiles and compliments that continue. Our Lee County Community Foundation Board is composed of county leaders who are all major fans of the Carolina Trace Country Club and its Staff. All those who attended our LCCF Dinner thank CTCC for an evening to remember. We will be back!!!
