A message from your Area Director, Marshall Stott, PGA:

I truly hope that everyone had a safe and wonderful Holiday season! I wanted to take a moment to say thank to everyone that was able to make it to our area holiday dinner at Mac’s Speed Shop. We all had a great time being together and enjoying the fantastic food.

2019 has started out a little wet for most of us in the area but I see warm temps and dry weather in the future. As our Spring season approaches I wanted to get everyone caught up on what’s happening in the Cape Fear Area.


Over the past couple of months we have had a few professionals move into new positions. I want to congratulate Jeff Phieffer in his new position as Head Golf Professional at Carolina National Golf Club. Jeff we know you will do a fantastic job along with Steve and his staff!! I also want to congratulate Ryan O’Neill for being named the Head Golf Professional at Pine Valley Country Club. Ryan we wish you luck on your new opportunity and know you will do a great job!!

At the present time I know that Bald Head Island Golf Club, Cape Fear Country Club and Carolina National Golf Club all have Assistant Professional positions available.
