With Cape Fear National, renowned golf course architect Tim Cate has designed a playing field as dramatic as the landscape itself. His signature feature – prominent bunkers that run the entire length of the hole – can be experienced on holes 5, 13 and 16. The course winds through heavily undulating land and features several bridges through wetlands, three waterfalls, and beach bunkers, all flanked by native Southeastern North Carolina grasses and wildflowers.
From the bag drop until the last drop at the 18th hole, our sole focus is on an exceptional end-to-end golf experience. Our course conditions and commitment to service are unmatched outside of private country clubs – allowing you to enjoy golf as it should be.
