The Magnolia offers old southern charm with very nice upgrades! Spacious and welcoming rooms, large sitting areas to relax in, rocking chairs on the very long porch and a modern spa facility that will knock your socks off and turn your body to jelly.

Incredible Golf Course! Home to the 2014 US Open. 110 years old and is still the best golf course in America! Designed by the legendary Donald Ross of St. Andrews, Scotland, who was Pinehurst's golf pro for almost 50 years. He designed 5 or 6 of Pinehurst's 8 golf courses. Almost every modern golf course designer has used Ross as... More

I just returned from Guys Trip to Pinehurst- 12 of us. Super time. One big suggestion all 12 of us agree on though is, IF you ever try to play 36 holes in one day, do NOT have Course #2 be one of the 18's. First most people walk the 18 with Caddy, and it is such a demanding course... More

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

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
