If you live in Brunswick County and haven’t played Cape Fear National Golf Course at Brunswick Forest off U.S. 17 in Leland, N.C., which is an hour or less from Myrtle Beach, this weekend would be a good time.
The Tim Cate design has been open less than two years and is hosting its inaugural Tri-County Amateur Championship this weekend (Nov. 17-18).
The event is a two-person competitive team event for residents of Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties, and the format is a four-ball with 36 holes of stroke play. The entry fee of $120 per player includes lunch both days plus access to prizes.
The field will be capped at 60 teams and there is a 15.0 USGA Handicap Index limit to participate. First place flight winners from the 2012 Wilmington City Open receive complimentary participation.
Cape Fear National was named “Top 10 Best Courses You Can Play in NC – 2012” by Golfweek Magazine. Call the Cape Fear National pro shop at 910-383-3283 to check on availability in the event or register online at www.capefearnational.com/amateur.
