“First choice in OBX”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

I almost didn't play here, but did so at the last minute. Glad that I did. They do a great job of getting you onto the course even though they are very busy in the early morning. Actually, that is almost the only drawback, as I felt rushed to start and had no time to check out the putting green.

Once on the course, you find a serious test of your shot making. Watch some of the posted yardages on the par 3's. Scorecard didn't seem to match up and I found myself hitting over the greens on two occasions. Course itself is in great shape and staff is very friendly and helpful. The course requires you to hit the fairways which are often very small and in some cases blind shots. Back nine is harder than the front. Glad I played the back first as it left me with the front to regain some confidence.

Extremely picturesque throughout the course. Great views of the bay. You are right on it. Wind makes it tough, but with the views, you won't care as much when you lose a ball.

I would highly recommend. Not sure why this isn't the number one rated course in OBX.

“Scenic Golf”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2012

This golf course while fairly short is very difficult. Narrow fairways and hard to negotiate rough, coupled with severe penalties for missing fairways and greens make Nags head Golf Links a challenging 18. The greens fees a high but the views are excellent. While on the course you definitely have the feel of a beach resort with ocean and sound views.

“Great bang for your buck!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Course played great, but very tough. Really nice short par 3's, lots of bunkers surrounding greens which makes for a good challenge. Starter told us short game is where you will score, and wow was he right...but in all, course has some great views on the sound! You can even call and order a hotdog combo when your on the 9th hole so its ready for when you make the turn. My dad and I played a round earlier today, definitely worth the money!

“Great Golf”

This is a very challenging track. It is not for the beginner unless you hit a really straight ball.
