Golf course development company Landscapes Unlimited has joined with a third-generation property owner to break ground this week on the private Contentment Golf Club in Traphill, North Carolina.
Situated in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Contentment will feature a course layout by Lester George. A media release announcing the groundbreaking said the course will pay tribute to famous template holes established by C.B. Macdonald and Seth Raynor.
The club will span more than 800 acres and is located about an hour’s drive west of Winston-Salem and 90 minutes north of Charlotte.
Owner Curt Sidden spent time on the property with his late grandfather and plans to open the club Sept. 25, 2025, which will be the 100th anniversary of his grandparents’ wedding.

“Contentment is a tribute to my grandparents with whom I spent time here as a boy,” Sidden said in the media release. “My family showed me the benefits of a quiet, uncomplaining and satisfied mind, and we hope Contentment is a true, tranquil haven for the body, mind and soul.”
Plans include cottages and lodging for members, but the property will otherwise be void of homes. There will be a comprehensive practice facility, outdoor gathering spaces, a lake, trails and reflection sanctuaries.
“The property on which Contentment sits is one of most relaxing, rejuvenating and overall special topographies in our company’s history,” Jack Morgan, senior vice rresident of Landscapes Unlimited’s project development group, said in the media release.
