Just the other day, the oldest, private country club in North Carolina called Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington for a one-of-a-kind lighting project. The Cape Fear Country Club wasn’t looking for landscape lighting or tennis court lighting. What the members of the Country Club were looking for was a way to honor its past members who were no longer with us.
Wilmington residents may say Cape Fear Country Club’s best asset is the challenging Donald Ross designed golf course. After all, its been ranked in the top 20 courses and has received high accolades. Maybe they’d say it’s their exceptional dining and social events. Or maybe its their immersed Southern traditions and strong member culture. All of these attributes do make the club attractive to its members but if you ask those at the Country Club’s, their best
assets are their members who have now passed away. These extraordinary people helped build the club into what it is today and is the reason for the memorial wall that stands just off the first tee. The stone wall and engraved plaque is a nice memorial during the day but the Club wanted to put it in lights to be prominently displayed at night as well. The proper outdoor lighting was needed to illuminate the names of those who have passed away. When we arrived at the Club, we knew the best type of outdoor lighting fixtures would be our LED mini flood lights. The wall is only 3 feet high but 75 feet long so we needed a fixture that had a high output but could also be adjustable. We installed seven of our small copper, LED directional flood lights along the scalloped area of the grounds to shine upon the wall, showcasing not only the texture and dimensions of the rock wall but also portraying the engraved
plaque of the members names. Rocks will be added around the lighting fixtures for the finishing touches to make the wall not only look beautiful but memorialize those supporters who will forever be members of the Cape Fear Country Club.
If you have a wall, a focal object, landscaping, architectural feature or anything else you would like to put in lights at night, give Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington a call. We have been custom designing outdoor lighting all over Wilmington and would be happy to show you how your outdoor spaces can come alive at night.
