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

I had an awesome outing with my company here! Since I only golf a few times a year, and am HORRIBLE, and it was a 3 day business trip with only one round of golf I went with a set of rental clubs that were probably 10 times better than my set. We had a caddy for our group who... More

I traveled to Pinehurst in October. It was a gift for my 40th birthday from my wife and she is regretting it every day, because I won't stop talking about it. From the moment you pull up to the clubhouse you know you are somewhere special. The old school train that is near the entrance the village is a great... More

I have played #2 a number of times so I can recall the course before the recent redesign. It is relatively flat as there are other courses in Pinehurst with more terrain changes. Trouble with driving will lead to a higher score as the putting is some of the most difficult you will ever find. Get a caddie and they... More

Wonderful course with recent restoration. Beautiful Donald Ross design. The new hybrid Bermuda grass greens will be even more brutal in time in the turtle-back greens. It's expensive, but a wonderful test of golf. Take a caddy and enjoy.

I played in a shotgun start tournament on Course #2, with Bobby as my caddie. The start of the round was well organized with golf carts available to deliver golfers to the correct starting hole. The course was very well manicured, with the revised hazards now consisitng of sandy gravel and wispy grass similar to the original design. The holes... More

What a treat to be able to play this Open course. Pricy and not for the faint of heart and I would recommend taking a looper to complete the experience (in for a penny, in for a pound). The course is not too intimidating from the tee but the real fun begins at the greens. Our caddie introduced us to... More

It was great to play right after the US Opens with tents and grandstands still up. Had a fantastic caddy who did a great job of reading the perfect greens. Great golf course.

This course is first class, but not at all attractive if you want green and plush. Great layout for walking and viewing the US Open, but best left for the serious golfer if planning to play it.
