Designed by Jack Nicklaus, this is arguably the best course in Pinehurst. It is also the most difficult. I have played them all.

This course is absolutely beautiful. It harkens back to the old days of golf in the South. Golf History abounds. Make sure you find the Little Putter statue that used to be on the Lawn. He is now in the clubhouse. Give Payne Stewart a fist bump. Everyone we encountered at the clubhouse was very friendly and helpful. If you... More

Well manicured and in good shape considering the rain they have had lately. Has a very Carolina feel with tall pine trees and sandy waste areas. Pro shop and staff very helpful. I recommend it and will come back.

The historic Pinehurst Golf Club and golf courses. It dates back to 1895, when Mr. Tufts first envisioned a place for Tuberculosis patients to recuperate. Nothing was even on the radar as far as golf was concerned. With visitors engaging in hitting a little white feathery with a long stick, with a wooden mallet on it, golf was born in... More

Played this past weekend and the service you receive is top notch from the second you arrive. The course was in really good condition and the greens were a little slow but overall in good shape. While the course has some holes that are difficult, it makes up for it with some easy birdie opportunities as well. Enjoyable course that... More

You feel like you've arrived at Augusta when you arrive at the security entrance and drive onto the property. The clubhouse was clearly built at the height of the golf course building boom and is fabulous with a full-service bar and restaurant. The course was designed by Jack Nicklaus, but like many of his designs, he is probably one of... More
