Price ok for OBX golf however I don’t feel the other reviews accurately reflect the condition of the course. Driving range and some of the holes had many tall weeds. Fairways had many dead patches of grass or straight mud. Bunkers were mediocre. Golf cart given to us had broken steering but was drivable.

I recommend paying a few bucks more and going to other courses in the area.

Not worth a trip

Being talked up as one of outer banks premier courses is a far stretch. The greens were in great shape. But that’s one of the few positives. The driving range only allows a 7 or less and is in terrible shape, the tee boxes appeared to not have been cut for 2 weeks or so with weeds everywhere, the pace of play is was terrible with no starter people just lined off the first tee box backing up the whole course. If you’re a local it’s a nice course to come have a quick round but it’s not worth the $60 greens fee at all. If you have to travel over an hour to play this course it’s not worth the money there a far better options with better value.

We appreciate your review and recognize you hit us on an "off" week. Our staff, including starters, were weary of coming back to work with COVID 19. Thankfully, they have returned. To address our sub par conditions when you played, we had 6.5 inches of rain and our tee box mower was having mechanical problems. We have been able to take care of those issues and things are MUCH better. We strive for affordable golf with excellent conditions and are truly sorry we did not meet those conditions. Thank you for voicing your issues with the course. We appreciate all feedback and look for ways to address any concerns our customers may have.

I did some checking could not find a better option. You mention far better options. Can you mention some?

Thank you for your review. We realize we had an off week with conditions as our tee box mower was broken down and we had 6.5 inches of rain. We don’t want that to sound like excuses for subpar conditions but please know, we have fixed the issue with the tee boxes.

Great time! Pretty greens!

Course in good shape. Nice variety of tees for all levels of players. Greens gorgeous! Aeration worked. Slightly slow. Tee shots somewhat open. Great semi-island par 3. Lots of water. Pretty layout. Fairways okay. Staff great. Range short, 7 iron in. Nice putting green. Nice snack bar. Great deal and a really fun course and day. Worth the drive from Kitty Hawk.

no place better

I have played this course many times and it never gets old. great layout that can be as easy or hard as you want it to play. a beast from the back tees. but the course has several tees and can be enjoyed by everyone at all skill levels. the staff is the best you will find anywhere at any price. I cannot wait to play it again.

Great value! Great fun..

Open fairways and fun course. Greens we’re aerated a bit ago and they told me that before I made my tee time which I appreciated greatly. They also cut their rates because of it. They have a neat par three copying 17 at Sawgrass that was fun. Rough not punishing. Traps could use a little work. Fairways were nice, greens were okay considering aeration. Not too crowded, friendly statf. Kind of a drive. Well worth the price. Good for the medium to high handicapper with the open fairways.

Beautifully maintained player friendly course

The course layout is amazing and the greens and fairways were perfectly groomed. The tee boxes were so well maintained you couldn’t find 1 broken tee. Lot of open land on this course, very hard to lose your ball unless you end up in the drink. Can not wait until next years vacation to come and play again,

Poor Quality

The Carolina Club has a mopey Staff - the starter is Very Unfriendly and the greens have hundreds and hundreds of unfixed ball marks ( A 10 foot putt demands multiple ballmark fixes ) - For the money this track charges the tees have high uncut uneven grass - The ball does not sit-up at all in the fairways -- Seems to me it's just all about the money and not the upkeep --another legacy back-in-the-day course losing its character and quality.
