Stretching 7,020 yards at Par 72, this championship golf course is very green and relatively flat, with tall pines on every hole.

We stayed at the Carolina and played #2, #4 & #8. The hotel is such a grand facility. It makes sense when you hear people refer to Pinehurst as the St. Andrews of the US. Great attitudes are the norm and the golf is spectacular. Play #2 with caddies, you will be glad you did. There is something about walking... More

After having played Tobacco Road, Whispering Pines, Mid Pines, and Pinehurst No. 8, I was so looking forward to playing Course No. 2. Everything was seamless. Our clubs were transferred from No. 8 to No. 2 and ready to go when we arrived. The clubhouse is rich with tradition and a joy to walk through. The locker room was spotless... More

Having played #2 previously, I was eager to see the results of the recent renovation. I was surprised that the cost of playing had sky-rocketed. WOW! The biggest disappointment was the condition of the course. Definitely not what you would expect for the amount of money you have to pay to play. I would suggest "stay in Pinehurst, play somewhere...

We were on a package and I was told it would be an extra $125 per player, but it was much more-$195 if I remember correctly plus $125 for the caddie. Usually that is money well spent but ours was sullen and it was pretty clear he was not worried about our golf experience. I had a great round till... More

I took my brother to play Pinehurst for his 40th birthday. It was fun to be able to say we played #2, but have to say that for the price, not sure I'd play it again. There were no holes that really stood out, and I think playing Pebble Beach, Bandon Dunes, Whistling Straits, etc. would be more with the... More

Pinehurst #2 is a special course. It is like no other I have ever played. Musch has been written so I won't go on about the course. My main complaint is how POOR the practice facilities are. I was shocked by the condition of the practice range. I understand these course get a lot of play and the practice facilities... More

I think there are better courses for the money. #2 is a golf course that is one which bored me more than excited me. Thinking about the holes, it was difficult to remember one that really stuck out to me.

We fell In love with Pinehurst many years ago, and after 5 vacations, we decided to invest in our retirement home here. #2 is a very interesting course, full,of subtle quirks, and baffling green complexes. Park your ego in the airport on your way down, take a caddie, and enjoy the experience. The caddies are all excellent, some are absolute... More

Very good classic and historic golf course. Green complexes are very difficult and the putting very difficult. That said, playing this course is awesome . It can bring you to your knees if you don't bring your A game. The club house is very special. If you can experience this place do it. It is fairly pricey.

Played two rounds on Pinehurst #2 this past Thanksgiving weekend. Started out cold as Canada and with a chilling wind to boot. Multiple layers of fleece and a wool hat came in handy. Almost as bad as last year. Warmed up enough to not be uncomfortable by Sunday's round on #7. Learned to approach each turtle back green as either... More
