Ocean Isle, surrounded by Golf Courses

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

By far the greatest attribute about vacationing in Ocean Isle Beach, NC is that you never run out of things to do! This is especially true about golf. While yours truly is not the greatest golfer (an 80s or 90s are a great day) I most certainly have my favorite. Hands down that is The Pearl, just a 10 to 12 minute drive from us here at the beach. With two 18 holes courses to choose from, you can play twice.
