Nags Head Golf Links. This beautiful, Scottish-links-style course borders Roanoke Sound, which is visible from five holes. Sea grass and rolling dunes separate most tees and greens, and brambles growing in the rough make accurate shots a priority. Make sure you bring plenty of spare golf balls. Together with coastal winds and a rugged shoreline, this makes for one of the area's most challenging courses, best suited to long hitters. 5615 S. Seachase Dr., off Rte. 12, MM 15, Nags Head, NC, 27959. 252/441–8073. www.nagsheadgolflinks.com. $55–$120. 18 holes, 6126 yards, par 71.
