My husband was accepted to play in the Senior North South and we were able to go this year. We haven't had a trip for two in forever! Anyway, this destination was a wonderful getaway for us and it happened right around our anniversary. We did come here once before, but it was back in the late 1980's. This experience... More

If you want to feel like you're part of history in an historic hotel, you need to stay here. Yes the hotel is older but they have freshened up the rooms and the campus is truly gorgeous. The service - from the bellman, the housekeeping staff, to the resort services desk are the best I have ever experienced and I... More

We highly recommend the 119 year old Carolina Hotel and Resort. The hotel is located within the Pinehurst Village with a short walk to the shops. The room was ready hours before the assigned check - in time. The personnel were extremely accommodating and the Spa plus the fitness center was top shelf. The rocking chairs on the porch was...

I did the Summer Golf Getaway. What a deal For $500 a day you get a great breakfast. A championship 18 hole round of golf, full use of a 5 star resort, a 5 star dinner in a wonderful setting, a night in a legendary hotel with all the hi tech amenities. Do miss this out on a great 5... More

We spent four nights at Pinehurst over the 4th of July and found it to be one of the best resorts in the Country. We've stayed at Pebble Beach, The Greenbrier, Boca Raton and others and found Pinehurst to be right up there with them all. All the staff were very highly efficient and knowledgeable, but not stuffy at all.... More

There is not a better place to enjoy the game of golf and genuine southern hospitality than Pinehurst. The golf courses are challenging yet user friendly. They are in outstanding condition and beautiful to view. The accommodations are pristine and the service is the definition of the true south! A must visit for golfers, vacationers, with or without children. It... More

I wanted to give the resort an excellent rating but I can't. This is not Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons, but it is very good. Our room was a little tired as was most of the resort, I understand this is an older property but that doesn't excuse it from some paint and a few other things. The housekeeping staff... More

We stayed on the Champions package which was just a few days after the US Opens were over. The common areas are very nice and the staff is fantastic. It doesn't get a perfect rating because the air conditioning in the room is quite loud when it starts up and woke me up many times, and the water pressure was... More

Although not inexpensive, Pinehurst is a wonderful experience. We did a three day golf package. Great golf, great food and great service. Visited after the US Open, so pace around the resort was relaxed. Golf courses were not crowded, pace of play was excellent. Only disappointment was that No 2 was closed to convert the green (we knew that before... More

Outstanding place with great service and wonderful personality. The rooms are spacious, clean and a history lesson in the game of golf and class. James, the General Manager was very helpful in making arrangements for an return visit. Very appreciate the level if service and personal attention. The Golfing and Food experience was a Major event as well!
