“That is absolutely not true,” said Kathryn Jackson, membership director at Cape Fear Country Club.

The private club does not give out information about its members, but Jackson did say that membership is by invitation only.

“We are a non-discriminatory club,” Jackson said. She added that the club has “minority members,” but did not elaborate.

    I am not a member of Cape Fear Country Club nor do I know their membership roster, but I used to rent a townhouse adjacent to their golf course and have seen minorities, including African-Americans, playing the golf course. I have also been a guest at the pool a few times and have seen minorities, including an American-American on one occasion, at the pool.
