Right in the sound gorgeous and quite the challenge.

Great virw of the sound. Bring lots of balls. Trouble everywhere. Short bit the trouble makes it difficult. 6100 from the tips. The wind is also a major factor. Fun, tough course. Nice greens.

Not a vacation course

Course was in very good condition, but for playing when just on vacation for the first time there is too much prior knowledge required. Blind shots, narrow fairways, unknown landing areas, etc. Other layouts on obx are more desirable for first time players.

Links style course
Very good condition, especially after the heavy rain in the morning. Very windy, but that's a given due to the location of being near the ocean and on the bay.

Nice fall day on the course

I enjoyed this course, which I have played several times before. The greens were the challenge since they had recently been aerated and sanded, however, that was noted in the GolfNow app so I expected it. The rest of the course was in great shape. With the hot temperatures I appreciated the water coolers which allowed me to refill my water bottles to stay hydrated.

Course vs treatment

While a very scenic course usually in good shape, not the friendliest staff and members. After stopping and making time days before member was given priority that morning. Member was not very polite. Not planning to go back.

Fun course to play

Interesting on each hole. Short holes have tricks and long holes are fair. Some holes give you choice to lay up or go for it. Just a fun course to play.

3 Days after Hurricane Dorian

Course was in very good shape just after Dorian and a subsequent inch of rain 2 days later. Only downside is that the staff could not care one way or the other if you came or not.

Nags Head

Very pretty course and in surprisingly good shape considering they had just been through a hurricane and a day of down pouring rain, the crew they have there deserve a lot of credit for all the hard work to get the course ready for play. Thank You I had a wonderful time

Great layout and the staff were very friendly. Pace of play was a bit slow primarily due to the two groups ahead of us. Also, a threesome cut in front of us at the turn (we were a twosome) talking trash about the group in front of us not letting us play through (group in front of us we’re a pair of husbands and wives, who’s wives seemed to never had played golf before, so expecting them to let us play through was wishful thinking) but we were all at the 10th t box, and not only did they jump in front of us, they mostly played terrible as well, AND, didn’t let us play through either. I still don’t understand how or why golfers of this ability play at these expressive courses and apparently never heard of a driving range. Ranger did what he could. The greens were overly sandy even though this is a shore course but other areas were well kept. all and all a great time at a great layout. I definitely will be back.

Nags Head Golf Links

I have vacationed on the Outer Banks off and on for 25 years and I never miss the opportunity to play Nags Head whenever I am down there. Love the course and this year I got hooked up with 3 younger guys and enjoyed it immensely. I have always found the course in great condition and this year was no exception.

Nice course

Very nicely laid out course for a good price. Carts and course is well taken care of. The staff was friendly with the exception of "Stu". This old man needs to be drinking some whiskey on the course to take off his edge. Told us to make sure we kept up the pace and only look for a lost ball no more than 1 minute because they were booked. It was a midday Monday and no one behind us all day. Get a new greeter.

Great, challenging

It’s not long, but the holes are challenging, with dog legs, narrowing fairways, well placed bunkers and water, etc. Fun to figure out. Only made it thru 14 before the hard rains washed out any chance of putting.

Tough layout

I played this course while vacationing in Nags Head. It was reasonably priced for the area and had some unique features. I would recommend stocking up on golf balls before heading out. I would definitely play again.
