Cape Fear National at Brunswick Forest
Opened in 2010, it did not take Cape Fear National at Brunswick Forest long to be ranked as one of the "top 10 best courses you can play in North Carolina" by Golfweek. It was quite a feat to create a course that stood out in an area known for its exceptional golf, but designer Tim Cate mastered the challenge. Although it was carefully carved through acres of forest, the trees don't play much of a role on the course. Sand and water will be the most formidable challenges on this links layout. Golfers can expect forced carries over native marshes and massive waste bunkers strategically placed throughout. There are challenges in store for players of all skill levels but Cape Fear National is also a fair and straightforward test with no hidden hazards.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in North Carolina
Would loved to have played this course, but injured my back and was not able to play! Tried to cancel but Golf Now would not let me cancel my round from the day before!
So I have no clue how the course was, how it played, the amenities, or the support of the staff!!
Should be able to cancel even if you payed for the round!
Just not right!’
One of the nicest courses I’ve ever played! Very challenging with a few unique holes with sand cascading along the entire side/middle of the hole. Also by far the friendliest staff o have ever seen. Highly recommend making the trip to give it a try, wish I lived closer so I could get a membership
Nice, challenging course made more challenging by the large amounts of rain recently causing the fairways to be extremely muddy. Cart path only for the round which isn't an issue just waterlogged.
Today was 4th of July. I was a single playing with a 3some. The starter didn’t want to let me have my own cart. That was really my only issue. The rest of the staff was fantastic, the course was in great shape. Pace was great until 17 & 18. But who cares at that point. No beverage cart today, usually not the case.
Love this course. Will definitely play again
Cape Fear National
Course was aerated about 2-3 weeks prior, so the greens were a little bumpy. Due to that fact, you would think they would give a little discount off the full rack rate.
Other that that, the course was in good shape and a real enjoyable layout. Played with my wife who said it was a fair but challenging for ladies.
Would definitely play again. A don't miss course if you're in the area.
The course was ok. For the money I would have expected Cart GPS or at least a yardage book for the layout. There was no early warning lightning alert system. Very poor weather management. The range wasn’t set up very well. Greens were bad. They had been punched 8 days prior and my guest paid full rate.
I’m sure it’s a one time experience, but I won’t be back.
Outstanding course, really enjoyed the whole experience (except some of my play!). Course is in great shape, well watered through the drought has it green, and long! Greens rolled great!!
Speed up greens
If the greens were given more speed, I would of given 5 stars. The greens were just too slow. Other than that all was great.
Real nice layout
Cape Fear National is a must play when in the Wilmington area. The downside is that they seem to be getting less and less reliant on public play and therefore morning tee times are difficult to find.
What a beast!!!
I play to a scratch and had my a#% handed to me!!!
I haven’t shot in the 90s since I started playing golf. After a one day rest, I will be there tomorrow with a little course knowledge and a lot more respect... Now, if I can only stop thinking about revenge and get some sleep, perhaps things will go a little better... Good night CFN, see you manana
