Where is a nice golf course to play around Morehead City?
Morehead City Country Club is a nice, fun place to play with one of the best finishing holes in NC. It is private but a call from your local pro can get you on.
North River in Beaufort is a newer, more challenging course, especially when the wind is blowing, as it was this past weekend.
Country Club of the Crystal Coast, formerly known and still referred to as Bogue Banks CC is at Atlantic Beach near the Aquarium. It is somewhat maligned, but I have always enjoyed it.
Star Hill is a nice public 27 hole course at Cape Carteret which could be a long drive depending where you are staying
