Cape Fear National is the newest golf course on the Grand Strand. This beautiful course was designed by Tim Cate, who designed Leopard's Chase, Tiger's Eye, Panther's Run, and Thistle Golf Clubs. The course features elevation changes, well-placed bunkers and natural wetlands. Cape Fear National, located 15 miles south of Wilmington, NC, is in an ideal location for northern golfers on their way to Myrtle Beach, or on the way home.
Cape Fear National is a challenging layout that can stretch to 7,217 yards with multiple tee options to fit your game. The tees, fairways, and primary rough are grassed in Tifway 419 Bermuda. Cape Fear National's heat tolerant A-1/A-4 bent grass greens are large and challenging. The course has over fifty sculpted bunker complexes and three giant waste bunkers which run from tee to green. Over 1.5 million cubic yards of earth was moved to create the dramatic berms, elevated tees, meandering fairways, and sculpted features throughout the course.
Over the past year Cape Fear National has been awarded with several awards including;
