Always on the lookout to give a different recommendation for something to do on the Outer Banks, we think we have a great one. Check out the Casey R. Logan Disc Golf Course in Kill Devil Hills.
The course is named for Bob and Lin Logan’s son, Casey, who passed away at age 24 in 2000. It is a wonder, a fantastic, way to call attention to how wonderful it can be to be alive and outdoors.
Carved through a maritime forest, the course is challenging but fun. Mostly because it’s just so darn pretty.
What the Course is like
Most of the fairways leading to the baskets have a curve in them. Since everything is lined by trees, guessing wrong on the bend in flight of a disc can put it in the bushes.
There are, though, two baskets for each hole. The yellow baskets are the easier challenge, but novices may find even those are a little difficult.
For the more experienced disc golfers, the red baskets make hitting the course par three something to cheer about.
Nestled at the base of Run Hill, the setting is so beautiful, though, that some people just show up to walk the course and enjoy its beauty.
On a mild Outer Banks winter day, it’s a great course to play. The towering pines create an almost cathedral like feel. And, unlike when the weather gets warmer, there are no bugs. In late spring, summer or early fall, a dose of bug spray should accompany a round of golf.
The course is located at the end of a gravel road that parallels the First Flight High School athletic field. The gravel road is considered Veteran’s Drive. Veteran’s Drive is off Colington Road and goes through the middle of the Dare County school complex.
There is so much to do and see on the Outer Banks. Make your reservation early with Brindley Beach Vacations to get the best location and the best home to match your vacation plans.
