You can picture it in your mind's eye: It's a bright, sunny day. The breeze is perfect ... not too much to impact that small, round ball in any real way. The other three players are ready. It's time for a day of Outer Banks golf. Gone are the days when there were only a few golf courses. This sport has become one of the most popular dry-land activities here. And, with Outer Banks golf courses now spreading from Nags Head to Corolla and up through the Currituck County mainland, no matter where you are in this area, you're close to some fabulous fairways. Some courses are mostly membership based but allow nonmembers to play at certain times. Others are totally open to the public all the time. At several of these golf courses you'll also find restaurants/bars that are popular with locals and visitors in the know, and if you need to pick up some extra balls or forgot your club-worthy golf attire, many courses also sport well-stocked pro shops. Need instruction or maybe only some pointers? Ask if your preferred golf pro is available for a lesson.
