Oak Island Golf Club
Oak Island Golf Club in Caswell Beach sits right along the ocean, offering one of the most memorable coastal Carolina golf experiences. During a round, golfers will most likely be joined by the course's abundant wildlife inhabitants, including waterfowl and alligators. The relatively flat course is wide-open, subjecting it to the blustery ocean breezes. The wind is definitely the most challenging factor on the golf course, with proof provided by the wind-shaped live oaks and Yaupon trees that are scattered throughout. Water hazards come into play on nine holes. There are also 37 strategically placed bunkers and challenging rough areas. Oak Island Golf Club is tough even for more advanced players, especially on a windy day, but it is more forgiving than it seems so beginners shouldn't feel too intimidated.

Serene beauty on the island
Could not have had a better afternoon. Gorgeous fall day on a virtually empty course. Great new friends golf foursome, terrific conditioning and totally playable for the 25 index that I am. The course is challenging from the forward tees but inherently fair for the average female golfer. Greens are smallish but don’t kill you with hyper speediness. There’s a new clubhouse being built so amenities are limited. If you like hotdog for lunch then you’re good and the price is definitely right. I played late making it in just before sundown so cart service was not part of the program, but everything was delightful about this course. No ocean views but plenty of interesting wildlife.
Brunswick County Gem
A beautiful, old style golf course. Fast, Smooth and Undulating Greens are always a challenge. Fairways are comfortable in width and excellent condition. Tees are always in good shape. Wildlife abound especially on the 4th hole where there were 7 gators there recently. Bag Drop staff is friendly and will drive your golf cart to your car and let you drive it up to the clubhouse. Talk about service! The pro shop staff and Starters are also friendly and will give you some goof hints for playing the course. The ocean is right across the street and the wind can be fierce. The layout is very challenging with smallish greens that have many deep traps, but do have areas in front to bail out. Bring your A-Game and hit the right clubs and you'll have a round you'll never forget.
