(RESTON, VA) – Billy Casper Golf (BCG) – the innovative manager of golf courses, country clubs and resorts – was chosen by Lord Baltimore Capital Corporation to manage Cape Fear National in Leland, N.C.
At Cape Fear National, golf course architect Tim Cate 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 course winds through heavily undulating land and features several bridges through wetlands, three waterfalls and beach bunkers flanked by native grasses and wildflowers. Each hole is laid out to dazzle the eye and challenge golfers at every level.
Excellent service and delectable cuisine complement the golf experience with a full-service restaurant and bar located inside the beautiful, 7,000-square-foot clubhouse. The Forest restaurant is open seven days a week, and dining settings include the main dining room, bar, and during fair weather, the patio overlooking Cape Fear National’s signature 9th hole. A pro shop, locker rooms, and a variety of practice facilities welcome golfers. Players can hone their skills on the driving range with target greens, an expansive putting green, or a variety of short game and chipping areas.
“Cape Fear National is an outstanding course, and the clubhouse and other amenities are equally appealing,” says Joel Gohlmann, BCG Executive Vice President of Operations. “We look forward to raising this exceptional course’s visibility.”
Selected for its ability to grow golf revenue through data-driven marketing, holistically manage golf operations and implement new programming and events to ensure a fun and enjoyable experience for members and guests alike, BCG began management in November.
“Our partnership with Billy Casper Golf allows us to reach new audiences while improving the member experience,” says Jerry Helms, Brunswick Forest Director of Sales and Marketing. “Cape Fear National is already the centerpiece of Brunswick Forest and we hope it will grow into a gathering place for people outside our community as well.”
Cape Fear National ranked No. 15 in Golfweek’s 2017 list of “Best Courses You Can Play” in North Carolina. In addition to offering first-class playing conditions, Cape Fear National boasts a new fleet of touchscreen GPS golf carts.
