If you have the opportunity to play Pinehurst #8, don't miss out. The course has its own character, and if fun and challenging. We live in the neighborhood bordering the course (there are no homes on the course itself). Quiet. Beautiful. Top Notch.

Played #1, #2, #4 and #8 on a weekend trip to Pinehurst. #8 is a Fazio design. A lot of character, more elevation than #2. It was a nice layout, though I didn't like the greens. Many slope one way, but the grain runs another, making it VERY difficult to read putts. Talked to a few others that played it... More

Pretty good layout , fair , try to play #1,#3, or #5 before this one to warm up. Played during light rain so tough to judge it.

Ate a business lunch there and it was very nicely arranged with good service. Quiet, clean with great views of the course. Menu was well priced. Will definitely be bringing other business associates here for lunch.

I was a walk on! I waited two hours to Tee Off, no problem. Left my clubs at the bag drop. Saw an employee walk past them three times. After a half hour standing by the carts. They asked if I was waiting for my bag. I said yes. He said "why didn't you say something" I told them I... More

Besides no. 2 this is my favorite course at Pinehurst. Topography is completely different than no. 2, wonderful views, differing hole layouts, changes in elevation and blind shots. Can be played by all handicaps and will be difficult. Only two silly greens. A "must play" in Pinehurst.

Although greens are new and do not hold the course gives you options by allowing you to run the ball up to the hole. The fairways are generous and in superb condition. If you like fast greens these are the fastest in Pinehurst

#8 was a very good challenge. Starter was very entertaining and knowledgeable. Good variety of holes. Conditions were great. Greens were difficult. Pace of play was a little slow. As with most of the courses at Pinehurst the difficulty increases after you leave the tee box.

I opted to play course 8 rather than course 2 because course 2 had just opened with new greens after the greens were changed following the US Open. Although the course was cart paths only due to considerable rain the night before, the greens were fast and true and the fairways drained well.

A great track, in great condition, but indifferent pro staff. Cart guys & starter were very welcoming.
