We played Pine Needles and Mid Pines which are owned by the same people. The courses are very similar. I loved the greens. It was like shooting darts - your ball would stick. Great time.

Pine Needles was in excellent shape! Fairways, greens etc. Beautiful as well. Wish they had GPS in carts however to help one figure out exact distances to traps etc.

Pine Needles is a very nice track to play. We took a large group out to play the course. They also serve up a great breakfast in their clubhouse.

Donald Ross traditional course. Not as visually stunning as it's sister course, Mid Pines, but challenging long course that is beautifully maintained. Greens are a real challenge, as you would expect from a Ross design. Lots of trouble to avoid! Scored allot higher than I wished, but the course beckons me back tomorrow to see if I can shave a...

I have played close to 250 courses around the country and Pine Needles ranks in my top 10. From the amazing grand looking clubhouse rooms to the bar area to the course itself this is really a top notch facility that will give any course at the Pinehurst Resort a run for their money. The course was in fantastic condition... More

Site of past LPGA Opens, this is a beautiful and challenging course. When we played (May 20, 2014), the course was in excellent shape. To score well you need to avoid the many deep traps that protect the greens and then putt well on the crowned green which were lighting fast. The inn is very nice and the folks (starter,... More

We really enjoyed playing Pine Needles, my wife appreciates it when a golf course takes into account what is best and appropriate for a female golfer. They provide ball washers at the forward tees, they provide a forward tee that reduces distance but not interfere with the integrity of the course. This provides for a great experience.

Pine Needles, long known for Mrs. Peggy Kirk Bell, her fantastic golf school and amazing course. Few in the game are respected as Mrs. Bell. and her gold course speaks for itself. Now it seems PN has made a major upgrade within the clubhouse, to their dining experience and kitchen staff. They've acquired the skills of Chef Peter Hamm, formerly... More

Setting is gorgeous, food is great. The womens open has been played here. Located in southern Pines and downtown southern Pines is wonderful! Great restaurants, and very active town. Great little theater that plays independent films and has live productions and they have a wonderufl concert series both classical and others.
