Cape Fear National, located just outside Wilmington, has begun a project to renovate its greens and bunkers.

The project is being overseen by Billy Casper Golf. The renovation will see the greens switched from bent to hybrid Bermuda grass. The sand traps will be restored and will be returned to their original integrity following damage from Hurricane Florence.

Billy Casper Golf manages nearly 150 courses in 29 states. Among those are Bradford Creek in Pitt County and Cypress Landing in Beaufort County.

Work on the traps is already underway and work on the greens got underway on June 3.

The course is set to reopen on Sept. 2. The work represents the largest overhaul in the club's history.

Cypress Landing

Lyle Carlson posted a hole-in-one on the 15th hole at Cypress Landing last Wednesday. His shot was witnessed by Steve Neckyfarow and Ray Peed. Carlson was playing in the club's weekly Men's Golf Association event. The shot was played from 129 yards.

Judy Andersen scored an eagle on the ninth hole, a par four, holing out her fairway shot. She was playing with Andrea Holloway, Pat Coakley and Karen Engmann during the Women's Golf Association's Play Day.

The club will play host to the Crystal Coast Ladies League's season finals on Monday and Tuesday. Tee times for other players will be available later in the day.

On June 18, the club will host the Northeastern Senior Men's Golf Association. Again, other tee times will be available later in the day.

The club will host a junior golf camp during the week of July 15-18 and again during the week of August 5-8. For more information, or to register, call the golf shop at 252-946-7788, extension three. Juniors may also be registered at www.cypresslandingolf.com/events.

The greens will be aerated on July 15-16.


Brandon Mader shot 65-69—134 to capture the Open Men's Club Championship at Ironwood. Shane Nichols took second place, shooting 67-73—140.

Pat Hobbs carded a 76-72—148 to win the first flight with Kris Arnold finishing second at 81-77—158. The second flight went to Brad Sikes at 88-79—167 while Tony Puryear was the runner-up a 89-84—173.

Bobby Godley won the overall Senior Championship, shooting 78-67—145. He had to go two extra holes, however, to beat out Wade Humes.

Humes did take the Seniors 60-72 age group at 72-72—145. The net championship was taken by Bill Johnson at 64-60—124.

In the 55-59 age group, Mike Harrell shot 73-79—152 for the gross title with Billy Dunn taking the net side at 66-57—123.

The 50-54 age group went to Dave Eberenz with a 76-78—154. The net winner was Daryl Neufer with an 80-78—158.

Angela Stewart shot 76-72—148 to successfully defend her Ladies Championship. The net winner was Georgia White at 74-76-150.

Dianne Delaney came out on top of the gross division at Ladies Play Day last week. Debbie Pruitt was second and Cheryl Newbold took third.

The net division saw a tie for first between Maryanne Kram and Belle Prusinowski. Leslie Bailey was second and Carol Kulikowski was third.

Pruitt won low putts with 15 while Kram and Newbold tied for second at 18. A four-way tie for third went to Bailey, Kulikowski, Prusinowski and Lynn Strausback, each with 19.

Birdies were scored by Delaney on 13. Prusinowski birdied 17.

The team of Stewart, Newbold, Bailey and Jan Thornton tied for first place at the Thursday Ladies Night, shooting a 34. Also at 34 was the team of Prusinowski, Delandy, Reeva Bernhardt, Kulikowski and Deb Hanson.
