Not worth $80

I get it , your paying $80 for the scenery. We were late due to construction and the starter was very rude!
Fairways had zero markings and your hitting blind shots 75% Of the time.
Fairways needed mowed and greens were some of the slowest I’ve ever played on.
Very tight and narrow fairways. Definitely a precision shot course and keep your driver at home if your a long ball hitter! I would play this course again now that I know what I’m in store for.

A challenge.

Tight fairways make for a tough coarse. We had a blast as the greens were almost healed from aeration and were rolling nicely.

Healing up now

These greens will be sweet in about 7 days. Played once Saturday 5/22 greens were fat and slow. Played again 5/25 and they’re already rounding into shape.
All in all a short track but very demanding w ur irons. Never lost so many balls

Woah

I’m a 15 handicap and lost more balls here than I have ANYWHERE else. Greens r a bit slow rn due to aeration? The guys in my group said the greens r usually much quicker. Great track tho. Short par 4s require ur wedge game to be dialed. Come prepared. Sweet course n amazing views. Won’t disappoint.

Gorgeous views

Lovely course in the Outer Banks with stunning holes that run right along the sound. Can be a bit challenging from the tee with what appear to be narrow landing areas but it always seems to open up at the right places. Greens hold nicely and with ample tee placements its great for any level of golfer. I'll definitely play it again the next time I'm in the OBX.

OBX version of pebble beach

Fun course. Wind is a game changer. Definitely shorter course then most. 90 is a little steep but comparable to all the courses in the area. A must do while in OBX if you want to play golf while down here.

Great Ocean Course

My wife and I were more than pleased with Nags Head, it was a fun course even though my "A" game was not on. However, my wife played the game of her life. Can't wait to play Nags Head again . . . beautiful course along the Atlantic Ocean.
