A Course to Check in on Again
This course was a welcome surprise for me. While there is still a lot of improvements I would like to see come to the course, I was left with a positive experience. The staff was friendly, the price fair, and the experience pleasant for someone who doesn't play a lot of golf. After several rough years, I was pleasantly surprised by how the greens have improved over the past couple of years. While I would love to see the greens a little greener, and the entire course to be in a bit better shape, I would recommend the course for anyone who is looking for a good time.
have played here before as it is cheap place to play when vacationing at OBX. looks like they have spent some money to fix it up. biggest change was they have a lighted driving range, with targets and distance flags. open late, i was there at 10 pm. greens looked better, looks like they added bunkers and refurbed existing ones. i have always thought it is a fun layout, some easy holes and some tough ones. play there every time we vacation there.
Having not played here in awhile, was pleasantly pleased at the improvements. Still great staff and value.
Very challenging short course
This golf course is greatly improved after a few years of neglect. New management is investing in greens, new bunkers and lots of other improvements. Course conditions are getting better all the time. This is a good value and will challenge all golfers regardless of ability. I highly recommend it. Don’t expect flawless turf right now. Play the ball down and you will face a great test. If you can score anywhere around par, you have really done something special. How many 5500 yard courses can you say that about? I would bet any single digit handicapper that they can’t break 80 their first time playing this course.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
