Thistle Golf Estates is just minutes from beautiful Ocean Isle and Sunset Beach, as well as the town of Calabash. The community is within close proximity to two major airports, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities, shopping and entertainment, and cultural events and attractions, including the North Carolina Maritime Museum and the annual Brunswick County Oyster Festival. A mild climate allows for year-round golf, tennis, boating, fishing, biking, and gardening.
Sunset Beach is a seaside community with shops, restaurants and small town charm. It is easy to spend an entire day enjoying the water, strolling out to the edge of the pier, or relaxing on the sand. Area events also include the Azalea Festival, the Sunset Beach Concert Series, and 4th of July fireworks displays. It is a charming community with endless things to see and do.
Just a few minutes from Thistle is the town of Calabash, North Carolina — also known as the “Seafood Capital of the World”.
Ocean Isle offers a family beach atmosphere, with seven miles of powder white sand, quaint shops, and many fabulous restaurants. Fish right off the pier, go on an evening turtle watch on the beach, or simply enjoy the relaxed and leisurely charm in town.
