Expected More

Not a friendly course for the first time visitor. Good company and good pace of play though. I guess the conditions are the new norm as well. Average for me.

Almost good

Overall this course could be great and a lot of fun. Played on a Monday morning and the pace of play was awful. Over 5 hours to play a round when it’s 95 degrees is unbearable. Two threesoms in front of us decided to play as a group of six. Greens were in nice shape but many of the tee boxes weren’t mown. Lots of dry burned out areas in the fairways. Overall not worth $100+ dollars for a round. Too bad because the layout way good and it could be a great place to play with attention to detail and a ranger.

Awesome course and experience!

The course was in amazing shape, with perfect fairways and roll true greens. The layout was challenging without being frustratingly difficult, and the serene views throughout the course were second to none. The entire staff (pro shop, starter, cart guys, and bar / food) was extremely friendly and helpful. The practice facilities include grass range and an expansive chipping / putting green, so be sure to get there early to take advantage of a warm-up. This course is a must play if you are in the Outer Banks or surrounding area. I look forward to playing it again soon!

Nice track

Had great time. Greens perfect. Bermuda rough challenging to this north east golfer. Driver not the best club on a few of the holes even though there somewhat shorter holes. Risk reward. Will definitely play again.

The course is in fabulous condition.My only reservation -a serious one - is that today was blazingly hot and not one - NONE - of the water stations had any water. It is not only unconscionable- it is actionable! Yes, the beverage cart did pass us twice and we purchased fluids each time.

Gorgeous, challenging track!

The starter told us this is not a long course, but you need to hit the fairway and he was right. This is a not a bombers dream, but you use every club in the bag. With water on 14 of 18 holes accuracy is much more important than distance. Despite near 100 degree heat the course was in great shape. The greens were receptive but quick when putting. This course rewards/punishes those that take risks. The finishing hole is one of the prettiest I have played. I'll play Kilmarlic again!

Nice Course--Fabulous Greens!

Very nice course---plays VERY short from the whites--so if you normally, play whites, you might want to go BACK to the yellow/gold (and yes--that is odd....). But playing up at the whites, actually offered several potentially drivable Par 4's, which was fun. These putting greens were simply awesome--perhaps the best I have played, and I have played a lot of "top" courses. Incredibly smooth--like a pool table almost, and that is not an exaggeration---and yet reasonable speed so you could putt to the hole. If only I hit my irons betters, would have been a great round!

Keep it in the fairway

My driver was working today so I didn't suffer like the other guys in the foursome. You can lose some golf balls! There are tree lined fairways, water, sand traps, and waste bunkers for your playing pleasure. But the course was interesting, secluded, and in great shape.
