When you think about golf on the East Coast do you think of golf in Wilmington NC? I bet not. You probably think of the many destinations in Florida, the Myrtle Beach South Carolina Grand Strand or maybe the Robert Trent Jones Trail, and certainly the Pinehurst North Carolina area. There is another location on the North Carolina coast, however, close to the beaches and centrally located. That would be Wilmington North Carolina. Three courses jump to mind immediately for golf vacationers and they are Cape Fear National, Carolina National and Magnolia Greens, all minutes from the beaches in Wilmington and only about an hour north of the South Carolina border. The Wilmington NC municipal course, a Donald Ross design believe it or not, has just been fully renovated and is receiving rave reviews.
For the many travelers who head South for the winter or just for a weeks vacation, it is certainly worth exiting I-95 to experience these great venues. Heading to Wilmington on business? Definitely bring your clubs or you if you are flying, you can also rent them for less that it cost to fly yours. You can find the latest information on Cape Fear National and Carolina National by clicking over to their feature pages here on TheGolfDirector.com including videos of their latest interviews on Tee It Up Wilmington and Tee It Up Grand Strand. To make it easy just CLICK HERE FOR CAPE FEAR NATIONAL and CLICK HERE FOR CAROLINA NATIONAL. We hope to be adding more courses soon to be able to provide you with even more information.
Traveling golfers have a lot of resources at their disposal with mobile technology, the Apps from every course to every destination, loyalty programs and the like. Unless you make it a full time job, getting the best bang for your buck, or really just making a tee time can sometimes be a full time job. To make golf vacations less confusing, we at the golf director have added a new feature – The Name Your Price golf planner. Let’s be reasonable, you have to pay something, but why spend your valuable time sorting out the more than 15 rate changes throughout the year and hour to hour yield management systems being utilized by more and more courses? Set your dates, your number of golfers, your budget per golfer and forget it. We’ll shop for you and put you on the best courses, have you stay in the nicest accommodations available for your vacation dates and budget. If there is a MUST PLAY course on your list, we’ll incorporate it. It’s time to get back to what’s important – providing a valuable service, appreciating the customer’s business and giving them what they want instead of some canned package that may be close but no cigar.
