Today is ABC Wednesday and for Round 11, we're featuring A-Z neighborhoods of Greensboro.* "C" is for "Cardinal. The Cardinal neighborhood is located in Northwest Greensboro, very near the airport. Before the Cardinal neighborhood was developed in the late 1980's- 1990's, this was just a rural neighborhood in northwest Greensboro. In 1972, the first phase of construction began for the Cardinal Golf and Country Club. The 18-hole golf course became an anchor around which the Cardinal neighborhood was developed. Today, it is member-owned and is one of North Carolina's finest courses. Driving by the golf course and through the neighborhood, you will quickly get a feel for the neighborliness of the Cardinal. Residents greet each other while out walking. They wave to cars as they drive by.
For today's photo, we chose this lovely home at the corner of Murfield Drive and Lytham Court. Murfield is the key anchor street in the Cardina,l stretching from Fleming to Old Oak Ridge Road. This teal green gem is superbly landscaped with the owners making an effort to replace grass with plantings. It looks like a cozy oasis with the back yard tucked into a cul-de-sac. It is one of many examples of how the Cardinal feels like home.
The community has a very informative community newsletter online.
