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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The course is tight so your drives and irons need to be accurate. There is little room for error. I loved the challenge. Lots of water and bunkers around the greens. Distances are mid range. Not short but not excessively long. Good draining course. We had 4 plus inches of rain two days earlier and the course was dry. Greens are fast but hold when you hit into them. The layout of the course requires you to use strategy while playing. If you plan on blasting away on every shot you better bring a lot of balls.
