Leland Golf Course Named One Of State's Best

By Jason Frye, posted Aug 29, 2011

Cape Fear National, the Tim Cate-designed course at Brunswick Forest in Leland, was recently named among the “Top 10 Best Courses You Can Play in NC – 2011” by Golfweek Magazine.

This is the second year the course has been open. In its inaugural year it was named “Top 10 Best New Courses 2010” by GOLF Magazine, “Best New Courses of 2010” by LINKS Magazine and “Best New Courses List 2010” by Golfweek Magazine.

Out of the top 10 in Golfweek’s 2011 list, Cape Fear National was the only course named from the Wilmington area. Six courses were named from the Pinehurst area, putting Cape Fear National in some lofty company.

“We are honored to receive this latest award from Golfweek,” said Jim Hahn, general manager at Cape Fear National. “Considering all of the quality golf courses located in the state of North Carolina, this award speaks volumes.”

Cape Fear National’s commitment isn’t just to world-class golf. From Thursday through Sunday, the course will offer a special rate of $35 for tee times after 11 a.m. to free up funds for golfers to give to the Folds of Honor Foundation. Folds of Honor is a nonprofit foundation that provides postsecondary scholarships for the children or spouses of military men and women disabled or killed while serving the United States.

The campaign will culminate with a Patriot Day Golf Tournament on Labor Day. A portion of the proceeds from the tournament’s entry fee, as well as the other funds collected, will be given to Folds of Honor at the tournament’s close.

The Patriot Day Golf Tournament is a national campaign supported by the PGA of America and the United States Golf Association. The tournament at Cape Fear National is open to the public. Entry fees are $45 and the tournament begins at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start.
