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.

I have played it twice - once before the change and once after. Both difficult but very different. Bring your best game to play No. 2! It is difficult and requires acceptance that you will have difficulty scoring. A once in a lifetime event. Highly recommended for any golfer who takes the game seriously and wants to be challenged.

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.

If you play golf, there are certain courses you simply must play. Pinehurst Number 2 is one of those courses. Expensive? Yes! But so are most things in life that appear on your Bucket List!

Although not nearly as manicured as some other famous courses, Pinehurst #2 made watching the US Open exciting. I was fortunate enough to have access to the Member's Clubhouse with patios overlooking the 1st tee and the 18th green. We also walked most of the rest of the course. If you are a golfer, you should put a trip to... More

I had the great opportunity to volunteer at the 2014 US Open at Pinehurst #2. What a great site to host the championships.

Amazing Golf Course! Very difficult around the green but a lot of fun if you like to challenge yourself, it is a must for every golfer even for those that didn't play the Open in 2014
