   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.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
