Well worth it

Played this course beginning of November and while there was some residual damage to the fairways from the hurricane it was minimal at most and the greens with one exception were in excellent shape.

The staff was friendly and helpful and at $27.00 per person it was an absolute deal. Will definitely be back the next time I'm in town.

Terrible course

This course was so need of repair that it needs to be shut down for the season. There were several holes that could not be played . Some of the holes that were part of the play the day I went were not much better than the ones under repair . There were no yardage markers on cart paths and most of the fairways were not really marked . The staff was nice . I just wish that I knew thie course conditions when I booked . I would have played another course in the area . I would not play this course again if it was free.

Course Under Repair

They only have 9 holes open so they told me to just play them twice for 18, they even have a makeshift scorecard for the open holes. It was 5 on the front and 4 on the back. Lots of driving between holes on their temporary course. The other holes didn’t look to be opening any time soon. As for the holes that were playable, slightly better than average conditions at best. And there is no putting green and the driving range is 100 yards long. Until this place has 18 holes again, it is not worth your time. Several better choices in the area.

Boycott this Coarse

The coarse only has 9 of its 18 holes open 5 on one side and 4 on the other. I was told in order to play 18 I would have to play the same holes twice doesn't work for me. Was very disappointed and decided to go to another coarse in the area and play. Can not get a refund since it was a Hot Deal offered by Golf Now. I am a local in this area and when this coarse recovers in the late fall it will be great to play but as far as my current experience it was a Negative this coarse in its current state of repair should not even be offered to play on this web site.

Half the course under construction and other half looked like it had never seen a drop of water ... they made us play the same 9 holes twice because that was all that was open

Needs Some Loving

The greens were in good shape. The fairways were bad... very bad. They were bare in a lot of spots. The trees could use trimming and the overall course could use a cleanup.

Mediocre at best.

Average course at best.

Got talked into playing this course again and it will be the last. Greens are.....just funky! Views are great, but course is not worth the high fee. Many other courses near by cheaper and much better.

Tight!!

The course was in the best shape I can ever remember. Usually play it a couple of times each year when visiting the beach. The fairways are great and the greens are near perfect. It is a course you need to think on each tee shot. Leave the driver in the bag on the short par 4's, the tight ones.

Wet weather
Used cart

Nice course for the money. Played early in the morning with another single. It rained so we stopped after nine holes and they gave us a nine hole rain check which I used later that week. Definitely need to know the course - it is tight and has some water in areas - and if you don't know where - you're wet. Staff was okay, amenities okay - but I was there to play golf. Greens where good, fairways green, no real issues - its a golf course on an island known for it's beaches. There are some holes on the water that are beautiful. Not extremely long and the greens are true. If you're looking for a country club course on the mainland this is not it. It's in good condition and the greens were small but great. It is a fun challenging course you should play while on vacation in the SOBX. I'll play it again next year.

Played here for sentimental reason.

I used to play here when the course was Bogue Banks CC with my Father-in-law. He passed away last year from cancer. His eldest son and I decided to play a round in his honor. Started out good with cart guy bring cart out to our car. Check in was easy also. Course was in fair shape, not as nice as it used to be.

Although it was height of tourist season, there was no beverage cart. Play was slow after first few holes and didn't see a course Marshall.

Most irritating thing is we finished playing and went into clubhouse at 3:20 for a sandwich and a beer and we're told they quit serving food at 3:00. That negated any positive aspects of playing there. When I get done playing, I like to cool down in th clubhouse with a sandwich and a beer.

Next summer we'll play the Annual Lee Brown Golf Challenge elsewhere.

Flags EVERYWHERE!!!

Sheldon Cooper would love this course. NO 18 hole golf course should have more than 18 flags around the greens. This course does due to soccer golf???? It has more than twice the flags. Could not tell where to hit from the tee and at times from fairway! Also trees over hanging already tight fairways. The oaks need to be trimmed back severely and fairway better defined by rough Layout seemed very good and greens excellent but we left after 9 holes due to the above. Please rethink the flag and tree situation.

TLC needed

A beautiful layout convenient for beach goers that needs some money and TLC put into it. Great views, ok greens, but the fairways are sparse and bare. They added soccer golf to the course, and the flags and tees for that confuse the layout. Maybe fertilizer and punching the fairways would give them more grass for traditional and soccer golf. I've played this course at least 6 times and this was the most disappointing.

Wonderful Atlantic Beach area golf course

If you're in Atlantic Beach, you've got to play this course. Awesome staff there. Very friendly and helpful. The driving range is short, only good for wedges. Course had some bald spots, but the greens were excellent. Beautiful water views all around the course.

Good Course with great views

Not a bad course, but given the location with all of the money on the island, I was expecting more of a world class type course which this course has the ability to be, but it is in need of an infusion of capital, and a lot of TLC.

Best Course in the Area

I vacation in Emerald Isle every year. The last few years I've tried to play some of the other courses in the area besides, the Country Club of Crystal Coast just to see how they compare and there is no comparison. The other courses were in poor condition compared to CC of CC. They layout and scenery at CC of CC is 10 times better than any of the other local courses within 20 miles. After this year I've decided when I come back to Emerald Isle the only course I'm playing is this one.
