Oyster Bay Golf Links is a longstanding favorite course for avid Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle Beach vacationers, thanks to a picturesque locale along the Intracoastal Waterway, and a challenging 18 holes that can cater to veritably all skill levels. Voted the “Resort Course of the Year” in 1983 by Golf Digest, and ranked in the same publication as one of the top 50 courses in the country less than a decade later, this reputable course still attracts golfers from all along the coast who appreciate natural scenery, great weather, and a fine challenge along coastal North Carolina.
The course is a par 70 and plays to just under 6,700 yards, but golfers can expect plenty of challenges along the way including cavernous bunkers, undulating greens, and lengthy par 4’s. Designed by architect Dan Maples and developer Larry Young, the golf course is a study in innovation and variety, and golfers will encounter severe marsh-oriented holes, strategic fresh water lakes, and natural hazards while cruising from hole to hole. Despite, or perhaps because of the challenge, frequent visitors return again and again for the all-around enjoyment, the decades-long reputation, and the stunning views which can extend all the wat to the Intracoastal Waterway.
