Sitting on nearly 605 acres in Powells Point, Kilmarlic is a must-do activity when visiting the Outer Banks. The course is spread over maritime forest and scenic wetlands. The course architect was award-winning Tom Steele who designed a challenging, but fun course for golfers. There is a strong connection between the natural beauty and the design of the course. Over 300 acres of the course have been designated as a natures preserve. Deer, otters and wild turkeys are often spotted on the course. The course is a proud partner of Ducks Unlimited to preserve the beauty of the area.

The friendly staff makes sure the course is always in pristine condition throughout the year, making it one of the best places to golf in the Outer Banks. The course is a mix of challenging and beautiful. Take in the amazing scenery on the tee boxes or the carefully maintained greens.


Before you make a tee time, dress appropriately. The course is a soft-spike course, but if you have metal spikes, the course will change them out for you. Shirts with collars are mandatory and shorts are allowed. Blue jeans and denim pants along with tank tops and sleeveless shirts are not permitted.

There is a pace of play on the course, of four hours and 15 minutes. There are course attendants who monitor the course for pace of play. Rates are dependent on the time of year and other factors. Make sure to check on the price when booking a tee time.
