Horrible Overall Golf Experiences

I played with my 9 year old son, the course is complete and utter trash, the greens are bumpy and more rough than Velcro, the fairways are very unfair, the rough is just dirt, the T box is just crabgrass, overall just a trash golf course.

Poorly maintained.

If you are looking for a cheap course to just have a few beers and smack some balls around, this one is not as bad as some of the reviews read...... Friendly staff, not crowded, affordable, and a descent layout.

Hopefully a new owner will purchase this course in the near future and re-seed the tee boxes, fairways, and greens...... really not that bad of a course overall, just horribly maintained.

Terrible Course

This course is bad shape. The worst course that I have played on in 6 yrs. Don't play the full price to play on this crs. Due to the condition of the course, it should be closed and redone.

Don't waste your money

Have played better 10 dollar Pasture fields in north west PA. Just weeds and sand and burned out greens, no restroom on course and the one at the club house was in poor condition (needed cleaning).

Dog track

This course is in horrible condition and is obviously not taken care of properly. For the price, during peak season, you'd expect better conditions. The fairways hadn't been mowed in ages. I've never played a course where you hit the fairway and still cabs find your ball because the grass is so tall! That happened about 7-8 times during my round. I'd advise paying a little extra and playing a different course that is well kept!

Budget golf in OBX

Fine for family outing or some practice. Bunkers need some work. Bermuda greens are pretty slow with not much undulation. Get what you pay for and this is the cheapest place to play in OBX by at least 50%.

Waste of Time!

I booked this course after I read some initial reviews and it was close to where we were staying.

For the $69.00 green fees this course is a joke! They should be at a $10.00 to $15.00 dollar range.

The greens were a combination of regular grass and clover. What they called their sand traps was a combination of dirt and they looked like they had never been maintained. Though they were cutting the fairways on the morning that we played the grass hadn't been cut in weeks.

Bottom line.......don't waste your time at this course!

Not your typical course

We played on a hot deal, 10 bucks, I would play it again for 10 bucks, never full price, I don't think they have a water system, cause it was pretty dried up, very tiny greens, that reminded me of out door carpeting, nice carts, some of the cart paths are concrete, can't figure out why they put the money in the paths instead of the course? Never played a golf course that the 18th hole did not finish at the club house. Very nice staff.

VERY BAD!

Spending $60 per person to play this course was outrageous. Greens haven't been cut or rolled in weeks it seemed. Fairways have maybe 30% grass. The rest is sand and weeds. Tee boxes were in very poor shape. Multiple groups over 4 people which slowed things way down. I reached almost every par 4 in one shot which shouldn't happen. Next time I come back to OBX I will spend the extra $30 and play a nicer course that has growing grass through the fairways and onto the greens.

large field with large random greens

Great staff and packed but the course conditions were not good. Many weeds and difficult to distinguish fairways. Greens were decent but were generally all the same.

Would not play again.

Grounds are improving

We have been playing this course for a number of years and the management seems to be making more of an effort this year to improve the greens. The fairways are still a bit rough but overall, it is in much better shape than in recent years.

Dont expect a lot

What I classify as "cheap golf". Layout, facilities, greens, etc. all about what Id expect for a cheap round. If you go in paying a lot you'll be mad when you see what you get. Bought fees online at a reduced cost and was still somewhat disgruntled to be at the beach and be playing this. Fairways are rough and greens are patchy and need work. Again, to me not worth more than 25. bucks a round. Just my opinion.

This course is old.

Good course for beginners. Was never rushed and we're able to tee off early. Course was in terrible shape but I guess that's what you get for a $40 course. Tee boxes were terrible, most fairways were decent but the greens had Hugh patches of dead grass.

Holly Ridge Revew

The course was short and tight. Many greens need worked on. They where very slow. It appeared that they may have irrigated. A good course for a beginner.

Fun course

Fairways are narrow so if you can hit it straight you can score low. Greens are fair but not difficult to read. If you don't know the course the water hazards can be a problem.

Not impressed

The golf cart would start and stop when driving. There was crabgrass on the tee boxes. The greens has clover in spots and dirt in other spots. At $60 I would like to have seen better. I will not return

Don't waste your money unless 25 dollars or less

Don't bother with this one folks. The worst course ever I played and for the money, it just wasn't worth it for me and the guys to play a round. Wish I would of read the reviews. Take the time to read before you book when on vacation in the Outer Banks. Just awful.
