Abstract:
Hensley traces important milestones in golf's rise to popularity in North Carolina. The state's first golf course was the Linville Golf Club, which was built in the mountain village in 1895. The following year Wilmington's Cape Fear Country Club was built. Both courses were founded by Hugh McRae. From those beginnings, golf courses in the state have grown to 565, including 384 that are open to the public. According to the National Golf Foundation, North Carolina ranks tenth nationally in the number of courses.
