Most courses in the Outer Banks open for business after Hurricane Irene
The golf courses of the Outer Banks in North Carolina took a punch from Hurricane Irene but not a knockout blow.
Most of the region’s golf courses were able to open for the long holiday weekend but not Nags Head Golf Links. The area’s southern-most golf course, located adjacent to the Roanoke Sound, hopes to reopen in several weeks. A note on the Nags Head web site from head professional Patrick Kelly indicated that, although some holes were undamaged, the maintenance staff will need some time before the course is playable again.
The rest of the region’s courses – Kilmarlic Golf Club, The Currituck Club, The Pointe Golf Club, The Carolina Club and The Sound Golf Links – are open for business.
“The Outer Banks and its people are very resilient,” said life-long resident Bryan Sullivan in a statement. He is a member of Kilmarlic Golf Club and the Outer Banks Golf Association. “We are open for golf this weekend and this fall. The region experienced sound-side flooding, but the courses are now playable.”
