I am vacationing with my family in the Outerbanks. Finding a quality golf course to play a few rounds was at the top of my list.

Based on reading previous reviews I signed up to play Carolina Club, and it didn't disappoint. The greens were fast and true, fairways were in excellent shape. The staff was excellent from the bag pick up, to the pro shop woman who suggested a "softer" glove than the one I was looking to purchase. Definitely, would play here again...!

We had 3 groups of 4 for our first annual memorial tournament. We had a great time, fun coarse, user friendly, great staff who liked having us! The sports bar at the turn and finish was nice, good food and tap. Just a short drive for a good value from Nags Head proper.

We played the first 3 holes in a light rain. The winds were up around 20 mph the entire day. The greens are the best putting I've seen down here - fast & true! Land the ball a little short of the hole - I was playing a Prov1 and the ball still consistently kicked forward.

The fairways were just average.

If you hit your tee shots over 225 - play from the back tees - otherwise you'll be hitting your SW all day.

We played on a Hot Deals so it was worth the price.

Got a hot deal and paid $20. Good thing! First the positives, the staff was wonderful, and the greens were fantastic. The biggest problem with the course is the uninspired design, I felt like I was playing the same 3 holes over and over again, Stick with their sister course down the road. The Pointe is a great track with better conditions for the same price.

Well run well done !
Small cozy golf course where I always feel right at home on my trips to the Outer Banks.

Played this course before and they are doing it right!
Chad the pro knows how to make people feel welcome when you walk into the club.

The bar is small, cozy and has a relaxed atmosphere yet you are served in a timely manor.

The course was in good shape considering it was winter. I enjoy the total experience when I'm at the Carolina club, they know customer service.

17th hole is a very cool par 3 :-)

Got a great rate on Last Minute Golf for 18 holes. Would have gladly paid double. The course is a lot of fun, nice mixture of easy to moderate holes, with a occasional tough one. The staff was extremely friendly and honestly to me that is the more important than most things about a golf course. No one wants to play when the staff has a "better than you" air about them. Clearly not the case with these folks, very down to earth and courteous.

Would have enjoyed the course if someone was out there making sure that the pace of play was enforced. Longest round of golf I have played when not in a tournament of some kind or weekend 5&1/2hours. The foursome I front of us had three to four holes open in front of them and we waited on every shot for 18 holes.

We sincerely apologize for the unpleasant round. As you can see from previous reviews, this is not the normal pace. Please know we take pace of play as one of the most important aspects to making a round of golf enjoyable and will look for ways to avoid this issue from happening again.

Excellent golf course.
Several sets of tees to choose from so choose to your playing skills. I'm a 15 handicapper, not a long ball hitter, and played from the blues @ 6200 for an 88.
Fairways well defined, the rough was tough, and the greens were fast.
Price was very good thru GolfNow.
