Outer Banks of North Carolina
“AWAY FROM IT ALL” IS HOW YOU’LL FEEL WHEN YOU TEE IT UP ON ANY ONE OF THE OUTSTANDING GOLF COURSES LOCATED ALONG NORTH CAROLINA’S OUTER BANKS (OBX).
Enjoy the Splendid Beauty of the Outer Banks
North Carolina’s seashore isolationism allowed the Wright brothers to create manned flight. The same privacy enabled wild Spanish mustang horses to form a unique habitat on similar sandy soil. “Away from it all” is how you’ll feel when you tee it up on any one of the outstanding golf courses located along the state’s northern barrier islands, col- lectively called the Outer Banks (OBX).
But don’t think for a moment that this coastal destination is bereft of things to do once your group’s round of golf is complete. When not standing on a green or tee box looking out across the ocean or a sound, you’ll be busy living the good life in quaint villages and towns with funky names like Currituck, Corolla, Coinjock, Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills, Duck and Kitty Hawk.
A famous expression was coined long ago at Cahoon’s Grocery and Variety Store in Nags Head. It goes, “If we don’t have it, you don’t need it.” This OBX motto could easily be applied to its golf. From true barrier island links courses to modern parkland marvels located inland, the region is so chock full of variety, you truly don’t have to go anywhere else. The challenges at such layouts as Kilmarlic, The Point, The Carolina Club, Nags Head Golf Links and The Currituck Club are as spectacular as the coastal views they possess.
A wide range of top-shelf and equally eclectic accommodations can be found all along OBX, from The Sanderling Resort & Spa in Duck to the fullyequipped Kilmarlic Golf Cottage featuring golf course views of the mainland’s Tom Steele-designed championship course. If your group prefers to be closer to the shore, you can choose from a vast array of beach or sound-side homes that range from onebedroom condos to multiple bedroom estates. Then, rest up between rounds at any number of privatelyowned vacation residences with luxuries such as private pools, pool tables, high-definition televisions and much more.
