Golf Course

Cape Fear NationalBrunswick Forest Cape Fear National

Destined to be one of the coastal South’s most distinguished golf courses, Brunswick Forest’s Cape Fear National® offers 18 holes of championship golf in a setting of unmatched beauty.
At Cape Fear National, golf course architect Tim Cate has designed a playing field as dramatic as the landscape itself.

Magnificent forests of mature oaks, maples, pines and magnolias create the old-world ambiance of some of the Southeast’s most seasoned courses.

The Cape Fear National Golf Course winds through heavily undulating land and features several bridges through wetlands, three waterfalls and beach bunkers, all flanked by native grasses and wildflowers, adding to the course’s considerable aesthetics. Each hole is laid out to dazzle the eye and challenge golfers at every level.

A 7,000-square-foot clubhouse features indoor and outdoor dining, as well as a pro shop and locker rooms, making the overall golf experience as gracious off the course as on.
