Oyster Bay Golf Links

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1983

Oyster Bay Golf Links, stunningly located beside the Calabash River and its expansive marshlands, is a layout that exudes maturity and style at every turn.

Both nine-hole loops, typically presented in excellent condition, take you on an impressive tour that embraces several wooded holes, where tall pines and oaks line the fairways, and then out onto the broad, open vistas of the riverside and lakeside tracts. With all these water features around, staying out of them is the key challenge designer Dan Maples throws down for golfers of all abilities.

On the back-nine for example, he allows you to gather your wits on the tightish tree-lined par-4 11th and 12th holes, before launching you into a magnificent closing stretch, which includes many great holes, and much water. The fabulously bunkered short par-4 13th, with a good-size lake on its right, is an absolute gem. Water surrounds the island greens of the par-3 15th and "oyster shell" par-3 17th holes. The long par-4 16th in particular, is as tough as they come.

Generally good-width fairways, large, well-paced and seriously undulating greens, and quite deep, high-lipped bunkering all reinforce the quality and enjoyment that Oyster Bay holds in abundance for the visiting golfer.
