Living in Chesapeake, it takes a good hour and a half to make the journey to Scotch Hall. I can promise you it is worth the drive! Scotch Hall is first class with great amenities. The staff is extremely welcoming, restaurant is great and clean, and the golf course is awesome! Course was in great shape with only a few bad spots that do not effect your round whatsoever. If you are on the fence being skeptical about driving so long for your round, don't be. It is definitely worth it as it is better than anything else in the VB area. I cant wait to return!

Awesome track tucked away on the sound. A fe holes had some fairway issues but overall the ball sat up like it was on a tee. The layout was extremely fair but still challenging. Greens were perfect speed and rolled true. It was extremely windy but that just adds to the links feel. Overall it was a top 3 track for me.

From the moment you drive through the gate the facilities look great. The staff is right there to assist you in getting your clubs load on to your cart. The Pro Shop is well stocked with any item you may need to play your round. Check in was extremely easy and friendly as well. Our group was treated professionally and the staff explained the minor situations they were having on the course. Some minor winter kill around the greens which were well marked as GUR. The course is in great condition for having such a long cold winter and spring. The fairways were like hitting the ball off a tee, which is way my group who normally roll the ball in the fairways played the ball down throughout the course. The greens are in outstanding conditions. They rolled great! Lastly, the grill is staffed with great and friendly people who provide exceptional service. Looking forward to my next visit.

I have played this course 3 times in 3 years and I have to say the conditions get worse every time. The fairways were mostly brown, many tees completely burned out, grass growing in the sandless bunkers and worst of all the greens had not been cut or rolled in at least two or three days making it impossible to get the ball to the hole. It was like putting on a shag rug. I really love the layout, but the lake of course maintenance makes it hard to want to go back.

This course is a beautiful Links style course. It is a moderate to advanced course. When we played we had a slight wind and it was in the mid to high 60's. It has beautiful views of the sound on many of the holes. My only negative is that it was a considerable distance from where we stayed near Kitty Hawk on the outer banks. But well worth the experience.

Great track that is playable year round. Be prepared for 3 tiered greens that are pga quality (Fast and true). Wind also plays a major role. Don’t be surprised if you are hitting a 125 yard 7 iron Into the wind or a 165 yard 9 iron when the wind is at your back. Beautiful course that will challenge the greatest golfer. Keep your head up though, so you can bask in the surroundings, where bald eagles and other wild life is plentiful.

SH is a great course in eastern NC. I've played it about a dozen times since moving back to NC several months ago. It reminds me of the nicer golf courses around Pinehurst.

The course is always in great condition and the layout can give you as much as you want. Just pick your tee box for a lengthy challenge or shorter tee box according to your handicap. Greens are always fast but putt true. I love the course because it is comparable to some of the nicest golf courses I've played all over US ( Torrey Pines, Kapula, ) but without paying a hundred bucks or more.

The course hugs Albemarle sound so it can get windy on a few holes but the views are scenic.

The green fees are very reasonable and the practice area is really nice. The guys in the Pro shop are very friendly and helpful. The course amenities are like a high priced golf course but are free at Scotch Hall.

Scotch Hall ranks up there with some of the nicest places I’ve played. Challenging from the Silver tees. Amazing layout and challenging greens. Bunker placement in the fairways made you actually think through a lot of holes instead of grabbing driver and hitting it. It had poured that morning so some spots were wet but not a real issue. Definitely will be going back. The GolfNow 20 dollar deal is the best around for the course you get to play.

I am glad you enjoyed playing Scotch Hall and we hop you come back again.

The current clubhouse has improved our services by offering a nice golf shop with a great gathering area in our restuarant/bar area. Although this is an improvement we understand the challenges of the location.
