My younger brother wanted to treat me to a course he's found that only locals know about and I needed to play it since I was visiting for the week (I used to live in the area). The course could've charged us double and I wouldn't have blinked because we got premium value at a "discounted" rate. It was $38... More

Development golf courses are struggling these days since 2008. This has fared well. It is a challenging course with great links style vistas. It is pleasing to the eye. The greens, rough, and fairways are in great shape although the greens are a bit slow (stimp around 8). The greenside bunkers were in fair shape. The only negative was the... More

Played this course in November 2014, when the temp was near freezing due to the polar vortex. The good thing was that there was only one other group ahead of us and no one behind us. We had to wait for the frost to clear so we hung out in the club house. We only stayed about 10 minutes because... More

If you're in the area, this should be a must play course. Great design with plenty of sand and water. When we played the course it was in very good shape. Challenging but fair with 5 sets of tees. We were really happy we chose to play North River.

If you don't know this course, you could lose a lot of golf balls - there is water all over the course - someplaces that you can't see until it's too late. The course must have been built prior to 2008 when the real estate bubble had not yet burst, and it appears the owners intended the course to be... More

I haven't played all the courses within an hour's drive of emerald isle, but this one is definitely worth the drive! After the rain we had last night, the course was in great shape. The greens were in excellent condition but the bunkers need work but who hits them there? :)

This development is only a few years old & ran into financial difficulties. Understand that it is now under new ownership/management. It is a great & well laid out golf course with tons of potential to match the tons of water which appears on most holes !...The greens were in very good shape, the Tees were fine ... fairways were...

This is a course that is only 6 years old. They are attempting to build a golf community, houses, tenis courts, pool, ect. Currently there are many open plots of land with sewer pipes sticking out. There are also 3 story high sand mounds from construction sites that are visible. The course however is great. 6 tee boxes that relange... More

North River is a great course, the staff is great and makes sure you have a great round. This course is tucked away from the tourist centers in a country setting

This a fairly wide open golf course, but don't allow the basically treeless fairways fool you. There are many bunkers, waste areas, and carry over water to test your nerves and golf swing. I found the course to be very interesting, with many visually appealing holes. The greens were in fine condition, and a well struck tee shot resulted in... More
