Brunswick Forest is the fastest growing community on North Carolina’s Cape Fear Coast. Covering 4,500 acres, the property is just 10 minutes from Historic Downtown Wilmington and features the award-winning Cape Fear National® golf course.

The community is known for its rich native environment of verdant woodlands, slow-moving creeks and broad meadows and long and varied list of amenities.

Active Lifestyle
Designed for an active lifestyle, Brunswick Forest features an 18,000-sf Fitness & Wellness Center, a 100-mile network of walking, biking and nature trails linking amenities and neighborhoods. Brunswick Forest’s Cape Fear National is a premium daily fee golf course.

Residents enjoy a 7,000-sf clubhouse and the River Club on Town Creek that serves as a center for boating and fishing activities. The Community Commons, as well as neighborhood and community parks and natural areas, all serve to surround residents with wildlife and a beautiful natural environment.

The Villages
Adding to daily convenience and a lively atmosphere is The Villages at Brunswick Forest, a major retail center with medical and professional offices, shops, dining and entertainment located at the community’s entrance.

An array of individual neighborhoods offers single-family homesites, custom homes, townhomes and cottages. Architectural and lifestyle choices vary. Homesites begin at $75,000, and home packages including homesites start in the mid-$200,000s.

Cape Fear National®
Destined to be one of the area’s most notable golf courses, Cape Fear National® offers 18 holes of championship golf in a setting of spectacular beauty. Magnificent forests of mature oaks, cypress, maples, pines and magnolias create the kind of old-world feel experienced on only the most seasoned courses.

The course was designed by noted golf architect Tim Cate and opened to rave reviews. Most recently, Cape Fear National was named to Golfweek’s Best Residential Golf Course list for 2013. A carefully routed layout on gently undulating terrain, the course poses a variety of challenges with abundant water features; each hole has been crafted to dazzle the eye.

The 7,000-sf clubhouse is equally impressive with a golf shop, a 19th hole bar and grill and other amenities. For details on the wide variety of real estate choices available at Brunswick Forest, see the real estate section below.
