Cape Fear National was recognized as having a modern layout for golfers shying away from the traditional and classic course designs. Set amid magnificent oaks, maples, pines, magnolias, and dune grasses, the golf course is intriguing. Water features and sand dunes add to the beauty of the course. Hole #3 is the Signature Hole, one of the most difficult holes of the course. Local's know to the secret to success on this hole and that is to aim for the leaning tree.

While all other Wilmington NC golf courses are just fine and dandy, Cape Fear National at Brunswick Forest is quite the winner.

Cate designed Cape Fear National with his heart and soul, and included dramatic features. Here are a few of the technical features of the course:
