I have taken clients golfing all over the country and have played a lot of top ranked courses. In my opinion, Pinehurst #2 surpasses them all, especially now with the redesign of the course. It is the second time I have played #2 and thought it was so much more interesting and beautiful with the redesign. No more boring Bermuda... More

An unparalleled experience in golf and golf history. If you can't feel the ghosts, you don't know golf!

Great experience. Caddy actually saw some breaks I did not see, but as a former 4 handicapper, I can read greens. The reversion to the original design makes it very penal for those of us no longer single digit handicappers. One finds BIG trouble with errant shots. You have to let the false fronts with balls running off the green... More

Went there as a bucket list trip and expected a top notch golf course.Poorly maintained fairways with bare spots and spray painted green bermuda grass in fairways. Bucker's not maintained with no consistency of sand. Visually all you get is a bunch of love grass that is everywhere and even a good shot turns into a bad shot. Terribly overpriced... More

The course has been brought back to its original design. Over 40 acres of rough removed and replaced with waste areas (sandy areas with wire grass). Lots of sand but only 20 "true" bunkers on the course. The fairways have been firmed up; a well struck ball will trampoline forward 15 to 20 yards. However, if your ball is slicing... More

An absolute must play on any golfer's bucket list. The refurbishment by Crenshaw and Coore made dramatic changes to the course in attempting to return it to the way Mr. Ross left it. While this is not my favorite course to play every day, it is one that I enjoy replaying every few weeks. As a member I can play... More

You will get "screwed" a couple of times. You think you hit a good shot and end up in a greenside pot bunker. After playing you will feel for John Daly and why he quite the US Open on the 8th hole. Donald Ross's crown Jewel!

Definitely take a caddy for the full experience. Ask for Darick McRae. He was a pleasure to walk the course with.

This was a true bucket list experience for me. The environment, the challenge of the golf and the caddie, Greg, were incredible
