9 Best 19th Holes on the OBX

Tapping into OBX Golf In the beginning, golf courses were inclined to copycat the principles of the Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. This trend ultimately established 18 as the magic number of holes for a regulation layout. And NO, that total wasn’t gleaned from the number of shots it took for a few […]

OBX’s Dream 18: Holes 4-7

OBX’s Dream 18: Holes 4-7 Nags Head Golf Links, Nags Head The land the Bob Moore designed classic now flows across was once nothing more than dunes and ponds owned by a single family.
