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

#2 is a fantastic golf course. Don't let it overshadow many fine golf courses that it surround it. #'s. 4,7,8, and 6 and wonderful courses as well. Challenging, picturesque and not as expensive at the end of the day. The best part of Pinehurst is you can play a different course every day for 3 weeks and not play the... More

Pinehurst #2 is a delight. The course is challenging with many waste bunkers, and roll off Donald Ross greens, but there is no rough and the woods are clear enough to get a shot. The course is beautiful and in great shape. The caddies are knowledgable and very helpful. The pace of play can be very slow, with 5 1/2... More

This one of those courses if you have the opportunity to play you can not miss, It has so much history to it and yes the course layout makes you work most of your shots and you have to read the greens. Get a caddy and get some stories about the place from him and not just to carry your... More

This is the 2014 US Open course for both the men and women - a first. It is rather pricey but definitely something an experienced golfer needs to experience at least once. One of the finest of over 400 Donald Ross courses, redesigned in 2011-12 by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, #2 is now very cloe to Ross's original design... More

Pinehurst #2 is classic golf, updated for today's equipment. Select the proper tees in which to play, for maximum enjoyment. But distance isn't the thing - beware of the Crenshaw/Coore update from last year, and keep it in the short grass - as there's no rough, but only sand and wiregrass to enhance your mistakes. Greens complexes are devious yet... More

There are numerous Donal Ross designs in the Sandhills but this was his baby. The redesign by Coore & Crenshaw have returned it to much of its original appearance. At number 2, it's all about the greens and achieving the correct angles into them. Take a caddy to assist in your course management and you will get to experience one... More

Great condition, was in awe of the difficulty. Greens are very hard to read get a caddie. Nothing to dislike.

I've played this course for almost 25 years. The recent renovation has drastically improved the look and playability of the course. Easily one of the best courses I've ever played.
