Nags Head, NC 27959

This wonderful links course on the water is kept in impeccable shape year-round. Although the course presents a "target golf" test, it is kind to those playing it for the first time, as all the trouble is visible. One hazard that isn't seen is the wind. When it's up, so are the scores.

That's in keeping with the true Scottish links tradition that architect Bob Moore envisioned when he blended the Outer Banks natural windswept environment into a shotmaker's paradise. In addition, rolling dunes and wild sea grass separates most of the tees and greens. And when it's blowing, Nags Head may well be the longest 6,126 yards you'll ever play.
