The Sea Devils Home Golf Course
The nationally recognized Cape Fear Community College golf program utilizes two facilities within the Wilmington community to serve as their home course - Echo Farms Golf and Country Club and Magnolia Greens Golf Course.
Echo Farms Golf and Country Club is among the finest semi-private clubs in the Cape Fear region, offering its members high quality, personalized service and exceptional recreational and social facilities in a relaxed atmosphere. The Club Facilities includes an eighteen-hole championship golf course designed by Gene Hamm and opened in 1974. A later re-design in 1998 by re-nowned British architect Ian Scott Taylor, changed the course giving it a more Scottish-links feel. The course offers challenge and enjoyment for all levels of golfing skill with four sets of tee placements providing play from approximately 5,000 to a little over 7,000 yards. The newly renovated greens to Tiff-Eagle Bermuda grass, are among the finest in the Cape Fear region. The course lies adjacent to the Cape Fear River and has been designed to utilize the natural features of the coastal terrain.
Magnolia Greens Golf Course is an outstanding, twenty-seven hole, public golf facility and opened for play in 1998. Recognized as one of the top public golf facilities in the southeast, Magnolia Greens has two Courses, The Championship Course (18 holes) and the Azalea Course (9 holes). The Championship Course has been the venue for several PGA Tour qualifying events. The Azalea Course is great for all golfers, from the avid player who is on the course three or four times a week, to the beginner, excited about this great new game he's found. The practice facilities consist of a full-scale practice range with natural grass teeing areas on each end. There is a practice putting green and a practice chipping green. The practice facilities are unmatched in the area.
