Celebrate National Golf Month in Outer Banks Style

Each year, August is designated as National Golf Month much to the delight of those with a passion for time on the greens! National Golf Month was first celebrated in August 1993 thanks to efforts by the Professional Golfers Association of America. The idea behind starting National Golf Month was to promote the sport as an inclusive experience for the entire family as well as golfers of all skill levels, ages, and genders alike. Originally, the celebration included an annual charity event known as National Golf Day, but eventually, the single event would expand to an entire month of golf-focused fun. Those who find themselves enjoying time in the Outer Banks this August will want to consider heading over to the Currituck Club in Corolla. This 18-hole public golf course is designed for championship play and is as scenic to experience as it is exciting. The course was designed by Rees Jones and pairs pristine coastal terrain along the Currituck Sound with world-class facilities including a driving range, putting green and practice bunker too. It’s a stop well worth adding to your Outer Banks National Golf Month lineup.
