Great coarse

Very fun and challenging coarse. Greens were well kept fast but predictable. The only problem was there was a backup causing some delays due to golf carts broken down.

I would not hesitate to play this coarse again

Much improved

Played it last year and it was rough, shaggy and bumpy. Total, 180 improvement. New greens crew is doing great things. Putts are true and quicker.....not blazing. Loved it.

Way Too Slow

Afternoon tee time for 18. First a delay of 15 min off the 1st tee, then a 2:45 hour 9 holes, stacked up 3 foursomes on the tee at one point. No marshal on course to help things along. Not the first time on this track. Do not recommend during prime hours -- course layout, lack of control, and tourist clientele lead to the Outer Bank's longest rounds.

5 hour round

Didn't tee off until 30 minutes after our tee time. Strike 1!
Had 3 groups on some tee boxes waiting to tee off. Strike 2!
2.5 hour front 9. Had to play front again or would have never finished. Strike 3! If tee time is before1pm you should be able to finish in 4 hours. This has happened multiple times at this course. Nice layout, in good condition. Just very frustrating!

Fantastic views

This is a wonderful course with many spectacular views and interesting shots. The day was very windy so there were not too many people on the course and we did not have to wait for others to play. This we finished 18 a little after 3 hours. If you have a straight ball, you should play well. If you have a ball that curves, bring many extra golf balls

Should have told us about aeration!

I play this course 4 to 5 times a year. Normally a good value considering the views, course layout and conditions. This time, I felt cheated on that enjoyment. Either GolfNow failed to post aeration warning and/or the golf course didn't care to. There weren't recently punched so maybe that's why GolfNow didn't have it but the golf course didn't do all they could to make putting less of a game of plinko. They could have dressed the sand filled holes are he same height as the putting grass surface to lessen the craters and roll the greens for a smoother surface. Neither existed. What a shame. I WOULD NOT HAVE PAID TO PLAY KNOWING THESE CONDITIONS.
I do recommend the course but wait 2 to 3 weeks for this to heal unless they fix it.

Course in good shape with the warning about the greens aerification

The course had posted a notice about the greens being aerated so knew what to expect in that area. Everything else on the course was in good shape and enjoyed the round except the last few holes when the wind picked up considerably and added to the challenge but that's Ma Nature on the Outer Banks.

Used to be a Great experience

Luckily took advantage of a hot deal, but couldn't imagine anyone would be happy paying @100 when greens were punched recently without advisement. Gentleman in pro shop didn't let us know either, but he was not pleasant to interact with overall I guess since we were visitors. Cart staff was very friendly and apologized. Restaurant/Snack bar was inoperable on this date, and the pro shop had zero provisions in lieu of this, and again gentleman in pro shop was put out that I even asked. Overall the clubhouse building/bathrooms/etc needs some TLC as well and a proper cleaning.
