Not worth $130

I know the place is owned by a corporation. They won’t care. If they would put some back into the place, I would change my review. No sand in the greens, ran out of range balls, burned out greens and some unfriendly staff. Being the only game in town. So, ownership won’t do a thing. So they know, spending 5k on range ball will make itself back in a month. The range is closed until 11, due to this disregard.

Great layout - everything else needs work

Paying $160+ for a round you expect certain things that Currituck Club failed to meet, especially for a morning tee time during peak season. No greeting at the bag drop, no complimentary towels or waters to start. Went to hit range balls and there were none available in the dispenser. Pace of play was average at best and had to wait on most holes. Greens were in rough shape with craters in most of them. It is clear that you are paying for convenience and that’s about it.

The course has a beautiful layout and the tee boxes and fairways were for the most part in great shape. It is a challenging course with demanding tee shots. Not sure if I would play it at that price again.

great day

The course was in fantastic condition. Lots of water to deal with, Loved playing along the sound. We were able to get on early when no one was on the tee which saved us a lot of time. There was a shortage of golf carts.

Nice course the starter is full of it though

We had a good time until that back nine when two beginners were sent to start there. The course was already busy the pace was ok until the starter sent them to cut our foursome. When we began the starter went on and on about singles and doubles are course killers. Then at the end of the day get greedy and send these two slow play lost ball looser to the back nine at 5pm. I called back to the club house and he the starter sounded like he didn’t know nothing.

We had a great time playing the course.
We were slowed down on number #10 when the starter let two players cut our foursome.

When you have no other choice…

Currituck has consistently gotten worse each year we come to play. This year (year 5) was the worst. Dirty golf carts with garbage from the last group still in them. Slow play with no help from the ranger after telling them the 3some in front of us were playing slow. Course conditions, see the picture of the 3rd hole Tee box. Most of the Tee boxes are uneven and rutty. I assume they think they have a captive audience but at $150 a round you would think it could be better maintained.

Beautiful Course, but only if you have all day to play

First, the positive: the course has a great layout. The use of the Currituck Sound to provide winds in all directions, with holes running toward, away from, and along side the sound, offers unique challenges on every hole. There are few easy tee shots, and with bunkers surrounding every green, there are few easy approach shots either. Playing from the black tees offered some picturesque tee shots, requiring drives over some of the ponds / waste areas that make the course so challenging. And the course is in fairly good condition. Some of the greens were roughed up, but the fairways were nice.

However, the nice layout also brings its challenges: the pace of play. After a front nine that took almost 3 hours, two of my playing partners dropped out. It wasn’t until hole 13 that a marshall finally came through saying he had “cleared the log-jam” up ahead. Pace did pick up for a few holes, but by 17, we were once again standing on the tee box for over 5 minutes. At one point, we had four groups on hole 17, a fairly simple 400-yd par four. The 18th, which offered a more challenging tee shot, again had us waiting for over 5 minutes on the tee. … in all, the round took 5 hrs 15 min.

Perhaps if you can play in the low season, the pace would be faster and the round more enjoyable. But it seems that if you go in the summer - even on a weekday - you should plan on investing more than the average time (just as you plan to invest more than the average greens fee).

5 hour round.. but very nice otherwise

Tee times 8 minutes apart and no ranger pushing slow groups on the back nine (we did see one on the front and seemed to help) makes for a long round. We were on pace for a 4.5 hour round which would have been fine until hole 11 when it really slowed down.
The course was in great shape and is very challenging and enjoyable. I will probably be back if I can get an earlier tee time.

Good Course, Slow Ply

Can’t play here any longer (appropriate pun).

You can’t do tee times 6 minutes apart. Been coming here for a number of years, but can’t deal with 5+ hour rounds. Will go off island in the future.

Not worth the money

Our round took over 5 hours to play. They send people off every eight minutes and there’s a back up on every tee, and every shot. The greens were adequate at best. It is a nice layout, and in a good location, but definitely not worth the money.

Nice place to play

We stayed in Corolla over the 4th of July week and had 3 4somes on July 6th & 2 4somes on July 8th the course was in good shape and the staff was friendly and accommodating. It was nice to be able to stay on the island for golf and I will do it again next time.

Waited 7-10 minutes on each tee box on the front nine. If you’re going to charge $160 per player under the guise of resort golf at least try and make the experience enjoyable for the golfers.

Poor Service

We rented three sets of clubs at 80 dollars per and we were missing 4 clubs. We noticed a few before we started and those were provided, although we waited a while and almost lost our tee time. I had to beg the starter not to push us back - we were there 25 minutes prior to tee time. We noticed two missing irons at the second hole. I called the golf shop, waited 10 minutes on hold, and the guy said he’d try to get someone out there. At the 6th hole I called again, waited another 10 minutes on hold, and asked again for the missing irons. We got them on the 7th hole.

One visit by the beverage cart despite it being 95 degrees. Not sure why they wouldn’t have that going constantly - they’d make tons of money. Starter was rude. Staff was indifferent. And there was a 7-some two groups in front of us. That’s not a typo. 7 people w open holes in front of them clogging up the course. Carts no longer have GPS as well.

It was a ridiculous experience that costs me a bundle. I enjoy playing nice courses and don’t mind paying for it. This was not worth it and a very frustrating and disappointing experience. I’ve played this course in the past but it’s bad now, and I will not play it again.
