Spring Outer Banks golf tournaments at Kilmarlic Golf Club


obx golfOn the OBX, we can count on two types of vacationers – those who come and spend time with us during the summer and those who come for a long weekend during the slightly less crowded times on the OBX. Many of the latter mentioned head here for a short Outer Banks weekend of golf. Let's face it – the weather is great and the OBX is home to several excellent courses.

One of the best is the Kilmarlic Golf Club in Powell's Point. Highly rated by golfers at every skill level and top rated golf associations, Kilmarlic is typically at the top of the list for planned courses to play over golfers' weekend trips. Golfers comment on how well laid out the course is as well as the shape of the greens and the challenge it brings to the best of the best players.

In addition to simply playing at Kilmarlic, there are tournaments throughout the year in which golfers are welcome to participate. Coming up in the next couple of months are two fun tournaments: The OBX Spring Invitational in March and the GolfWeek Amateur Tour Masters in May.

OBX Spring Invitational, to be held March 15 and 16. Contact Kilmarlic for more information.

The GolfWeek Amateur Tour Masters, held May 17 and 18, is a traveling golf tour that allows amateurs of all ages and handicaps to compete in stroke-play tournaments on top rate golf courses. The winners from each tournament go on to compete in a National Tour Championship. Players join the Amateur Tour by paying an annual membership fee ($80-$120) then play in as many area tournaments as they would like. Kilmarlic is one of the courses on which the Tour plays every year. Not only is it a top rated course but it provides an excellent destination for players and their families.

Because so many overall OBX vacations include at least one round of golf, Kilmarlic features an exclusive vacation amenities program, K-Club, where guests of participating vacation rental companies (Élan Vacations is one) receive special amenities.

The K Club is an amenity program extended to rental guests of K Club member homes on the Outer Banks. This program offers guests a variety of activities and services including
