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

I play a great deal of golf, and I am lucky to have played many great courses in the US. It doesn't get any better than the restored Pinehurst #2. Even in January, the course was beautiful and in great condition. The layout and Donald Ross's greens are truly outstanding!

I played No.2 for the 4th time (in 2 years) this past Saturday. Perfect weather!!!! The course was in amazing shape...as always. Eric was my caddie and he was very good. He saved me at least 4 - 5 strokes on my round. The caddies read the greens so well (they are tough to read). They will let you know... More

Have played course #2 many times. I love the challenge on the greens, but that's the difficulty of the course, and if you like challenges, you'll enjoy this one. But, there are so many other courses that are challenging that it may be good for a US Open, and for low handicappers, but for the average golfer, even someone with... More

This was our second time playing #2 and will definitely go back sometime in the future - Yes - it is expensive, but it is such a treat if you enjoy good golf, that it should be on every golfers bucket list. We took a caddy and that is the best way to enjoy the course to it's fullest.

Played back to back walking with 3 other good players with caddies on a perfect weather day. They nailed the revamp, it's gorgeous and plays different, maybe a titch easier, but still a solid test. You have to hit solid shots or you will be miserable. Awesome, can't wait to go back even if it did humble me one of... More

The staff at Pinehurst make you feel so welcome, southern charm and attention to detail! The caddies are fun, informative, and hardworking. The course was bone dry after a week of rain.

What a great course! We spent over an hour just browsing the clubhouse. The course was actually very playable for an amateur. We played in April 2015 so the wild grasses were not fully grown in but still a challenge. Immaculately maintained, perfect service, and history that can't be beat. This was a bucket list item, and did not disappoint.

Vacation Fun with Friends. We golfed 5 rounds in Pinehurst including 2 rounds number 1. Such an awesome experience. The staff is incredible, friendly, and helpful. We played #2 with a caddie named Bryan. He had only been there 3 months but was very good and very fun to spend the day with. All courses are generous to lady golfers.... More

If you are coming here, why not play the US Open track? It is everything it should be except not exceptionally long. The greens make up for that in spades though! Bring your short game, and bring it in top form. You will have a new found respect for the pros and amateurs alike that can play this course around... More

Lives up to its reputation. Get in your practice on the greens and chipping area though...The areas around the green are very tight lies, so you need to get used to how to chip from there...but this is a great course for pros and amateurs alike. Very open with opportunities to recover
