Since each course is slightly distinctive and offers a distinct perspective on life and the environment there, playing a few different ones might help you gain a better understanding of the Outer Shore golf sector. The Outer Banks are a sure choice for golfers who enjoy the seaside setting and scenery but don’t want to deal with the throngs and chaos that could overtake other Eastern Coast holiday destinations. Although there aren’t many golf courses in the area, those that are there have been deliberately built and maintained to preserve both the greens’ playability and the area’s natural coastal backdrop.
Golfers on the Outer Banks can therefore anticipate playing alongside sand dunes, taking in holes that are close to the sound of the ocean, and perhaps even spotting an egret or a brilliant bright heron as they move around the course. With yards of courses hidden among live oaks, sea oats, and cedar trees, the Outer Shores are renowned for keeping information deceptively simple. Traveling golfers can hone their swing on a top-notch course and take in the Outer Banks’ breathtaking splendor.
Make a golf time ahead to enjoy golf in one of the most beautiful and pristine coastal settings on the East Coast, especially during the busy summer months as Outer Shores tourism is at its height.
