Top Notch

One of the best courses in area. Greens, tee boxes, and fairways were all in great shape.

Carts don’t work well

Greens are very good. Smooth and fast. Tees and fairways are decent. Fairways are thin for a Country Club. Carts are a problem. My cart told me to get back on the cart path when I was in the middle of the fairway on the 150 yard marker. At one point , it stopped me and told me to get on the cart path when I was on the cart path.

Thanks

It was great. I’m actually Rick’s son, he made me do the review. I rather enjoyed it. The one par five starting at the water, number 12 I believe, ate me up cause I hit a fade and I had zero angle so that made me sad but the course is beautiful and a lot of fun. Will be back

Great condition

Course was in great condition. Greens rolled true and were in great condition. Fairways were almost blemish free. Course is narrow so accuracy is key. Highly recommend especially if you are able to get a hot deal

The course is not long but tight with plenty of hazards. You might want to leave your driver in the car.

Couldn’t play back 9

For starters, as we finished playing front 9 and headed to #10 hole, we were told the back nine was closed because the golf course was hosting a wedding! No advance notification about the back 9 being closed, or we would have chosen a different course that day. Friends flew in from New York for a few days of golf, so very disappointing. Pro Shop said they could not offer any type of refund, since we booked through third party, GolfNow. Staff made very little effort to find an acceptable solution. No beverage on the course, and it was a nice, sunny day. There was barely any water on the course to drink, and it tasted disgusting. So, we paid full price to play 9 holes.

fun course, great shape

Have played this course many times over the last 30 years and the last couple years it has been in the best shape it has ever been. Great course for all players, but add a little breeze and even good players will be challenged to shoot a low score. Fairways are very nice...traps are immaculate...and greens are consistent and smooth.

Visitor from the North

I had a great time playing this course. It’s narrow…and while I’m new…I do hit straight! Lost a few balls to the neighbors yards. Good people. Beautiful course and great conditions. Thank you!

Nice course on the water

Was on a family vacation on Emerald Isle and wanted to play a course on the water. Course has nice views of the inter coastal. The lady in the pro shop was not inviting and seemed like I was bothering her by being there??? The starter was nice and pointed me in the right direction. Course is not long but tight requiring accuracy. Overall a good test and enjoyed the round.

greens

The greens were in poor shape . The grass was high they were very slow The areation holes were still exposed and not dressed with sand. This problem with the greens should have a price reduction

Great place to play while vacationing at Emerald Isle, Atlantic Beach, etc..

Great course to play. Staff was friendly, clubhouse has been recently remodeled since the last time I played at CCCC. The course was in good shape. Very tight layout and the Bermuda greens are small and fast. Keep the driver in the bag and use your course guide to find the hazards - lots of water. The layout is different but with the amount of land available they did a great job. I had the pleasure of meeting the GM and his son. They were very nice and accommodating. Definitely will play again next year.

Just Average

I booked this on a day when was they were actually aerating the greens and fairways. The back nine was closed, and I was required to play the front nine twice.
The pro shop was tucked in very small corner of the clubhouse and not well marked. The attendant was not very helpful with instructions or directions. The most helpful person at the facility was the cart worker.
The course was just ok. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to play the more scenic holes on the sound. I would have rather saved my money and played a cheaper option.
