A fine layout, well deserving its top 100 ranking … staff was highly professional, attentive and genuinely proud and interested in our visit to their club … the course was very playable however, visuals from tee to green are impressive and can be cause for concern- buy the yardage book or download the app to know how to play the...

We are so glad you enjoyed your round of golf at The Road! We have all been challenged by the extremely cold weather this winter. If you enjoyed the course this time of year when the conditions are less than stellar, I can't wait for you to see it later in the year. Please tell all your friends and keep... More

the is target golf at it's finest. If you are a high handicapper stay away and play some of the other courses near by. The only negative on the course was near the end it got a bit too much I thought.

I'm a 24 handicap and thoroughly enjoyed playing this course. It's unique design required a thoughtful approach to each shot. I will definitely return when in Pinehurst.

I recently played at Tobacco Road with my son and a mutual friend. Needless to say, prior to going I went on line to review the animated video, and was NOT looking forward to playing this course. For a high handcapper like myself, it did not look like the place to play. I figured that I was doomed to a... More

Really enjoy the Mike Stranz courses to get a break from the traditional course. Be ready for a great course visually with some tough shots requiring pinpoint accuracy.

The course was a challenge. It required pinpoint accuracy on shots to most greens.There were a number of blind shots. The greens were not in tip top shape because of the heavy rains this summer. I can't wait to play it again! Barbecue sandwich is a must.

Tobacco Road golf course is like no other. You must see it and play it to believe it. Great scenery and a hoot to play - you won't be sorry.

save your money.....if you like blind shots and slow bumpy greens......5 hour 30 minute round.....if you are not a single handicap long day....it is like a video game...better take lots of beer.....feel like you in a fight when you get thru....way overrated...i bet there is not a lot of repeat players....go 30 more minutes south to pinehurst for better options...

I just signed up to reply to reviews on this site. Although you played nearly 6 months ago, I would like to apologize for your poor experience especially for the things for which we are in control. The pace of play and conditions are something that we spend a lot of time and effort on. Apparently, we were lacking of... More
