A grand reopening of the Wilmington Municipal Golf Course is set to take place on 1 October following the completion of a renovation project led by architect John Fought.
Reports indicate that the projected October date for reopening is likely to be met.
Originally designed by Donald Ross, the course in Wilmington, North Carolina, opened in 1926.
Working alongside contractor Duininck Golf, Fought has had access to sketches and notes for seventeen of the course’s greens.
The architect spoke to GCA in April about the project, saying: “I think it will make this course so much better both from an infrastructure standpoint and will also look and play like the wonderful design Ross intended it to be.”
