Gracing the peaceful banks of the pristine Cape Fear coast, Brunswick Forest sets a new standard for coastal golf living in the Southeast. Located just outside of historic downtown Wilmington, N.C., this immaculate residential enclave grants residents the opportunity to indulge in all the beauty and splendor that the Coastal South has to offer while also enjoying all of the comforts, benefits and amenities that come with being the region’s fastest growing community.
At the heart of this residential haven is Cape Fear National at Brunswick Forest, a premier golf club crafted by master golf course architect Tim Cate. Destined to become one of the state’s finest courses – thanks in large part to its environmentally friendly design, creative routing and dazzling location – Cape Fear National offers 18 spectacular holes of championship golf that have been designed to mirror their flawless surroundings. This premium, daily-fee course measures 7,217 yards from the championship tees and snakes along cypress, magnolia, maple, oak and pine forests as it sweeps across acres of undulating terrain. Dramatic berms, meandering fairways, elevated tees and sculpted contours also adorn the course, delivering exciting challenges for seasoned golfers as well as flexibility for novices. Rounding out the course’s immaculate features are Bermuda fairways, bent-grass greens and sculpted bunkers surrounded by lush zoysia grass, thus ensuring each round on this extraordinary course is as amazing as the last.
Though Cape Fear National’s exceptional golf experience takes the forefront at Brunswick Forest, this exclusive residential community also features a myriad of non-golf activities and amenities, including more than 100 miles of hiking and biking trails, six tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center and a glass-enclosed Community Commons building with a impressive event lawn and gazebo adjacent to a fishing dock. In addition, Brunswick Forest will offer shopping at the 160-acre Villages at Brunswick Forest and numerous wellness programs at New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Also, the community’s River Club currently offers residents the opportunity to canoe, kayak and fish along the picturesque Town Creek.
Currently, Brunswick Forest boasts 11 unique neighborhoods, each with its own distinctive styling and ambiance, as well as a host of expansive homesites, that are priced from $75,000. The 4,500-acre community also features a variety of residential options beginning in the mid $200,000s, which range from upscale townhouses and low-maintenance patio homes to spacious bungalows and sprawling golf course estates.
With such an extensive array of residential offerings, amenities and recreational activities, it’s no wonder Brunswick Forest is quickly becoming one of the Tar Heel State’s premier golf communities.
