Challenging but fun

We had a great round as one of our 4some shot a 74 with an eagle on 18, really an exciting round.

Fun course

Challenging fun layout in good condition. Slow pace of play detracts a bit from the enjoyment. Definitely a good overall experience and would recommend

Outstanding view from every tee box.

Let me start off with a quick disclaimer; on principle alone I do not normally play $135 rounds. That aside this layout is magnificent, every hole is a vista tee to green. Would I play it again for $135, no, but if it was half that price I would play it every day of my two week vacation stay. Still conditions were somewhat disappointing, around the greens and on the collars but clearly they are working on it laying sod and digging stuff out.
Small greens, running fast and true, fair but narrow fairway landing zones, you can score on this baby by just staying in play, even from the back tees. Excellent friendly service from everybody I met.

Golf with Som and Nephews

Vacation in OBX with family and golf is a requirement. Found course when other course was determined to be too far away. The app allowed us to cancel at other course and pick up this one at close to the same time. Staff met us with carts and explained the nuances of the course. Check in was easy and all were friendly and welcoming. Course had a great layout for all levels.

Slow Play

I have played Kilmarlic in the past and loved it. This experience was different. The greens were really slow, which is a minor problem. Also, the staff member that comes to your car to load your clubs managed to lose my driver headcover. Also a small problem. But the outdoor staff and pro shop people were rude when I tried to find it. Bigger problem. We started on the back and played in two hours. When we made the turn, there were 3 groups on the tee. The second nine took 3 hours.

Loved the course

I have never been to the Outter Banks. Ive been looking forward to playing this course since I found out about it. The layout of the course is awesome. There were some dead spots around the greens but the fairways were really nice. Sand was tough but nice to play out of. There is water on a lot of the hole, which I loved. Overall, I really enjoyed this course and would definitely come back and recommend it to anyone looking to play golf in OBX..
The staff was great. We were given a card with the course layout showing distances to bunkers and water hazards. I highly recommend looking before every hole. There are some hidden water hazards that arent visible from the tee box.
Thank you Kilmarlic for a great round.
