   Wilmington Municipal Golf Course Est. 1926

Where2Golf says: 

Wilmington Municipal Golf Course is home to a generally well-regarded layout, which includes several attractive holes and features. Originally designed in 1926 by Donald Ross, the course has recently been restored by golf architect John Fought, bringing it back to Ross's original design. This tree-lined and open parkland layout will test most facets of your game, and should provide a round with plenty of enjoyable golfing challenges. Worth visiting if you are in the area.

Did you know?

The city of Wilmington sits on the east bank of the Cape Fear River, which flows out into the Atlantic Ocean, some 25 miles further south at Cape Fear. The cape is a prominent headland which juts into the ocean at the bottom end of Bald Head Island. The cape's name comes from the 1585 expedition of Sir Richard Grenville. His ship narrowly avoided being wrecked near the cape, in consequence of which Cape Fear was so named. It is one of the oldest surviving English place names in the United States.

The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.

In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
