Whether in Pinehurst for business or pleasure stop by and see the staff at the Ryder Cup Lounge... The staff there will make sure your needs are taken care of. Great beer/wine/liquor selection while sitting on the porch in a rocker or inside in a comfy chair...

My expectations were high since my wife had never been there. We were in the area for the Tour de Moore Cycling event. I had been there in the past for meetings and golf. Upon arrival very nice Bellman greeted us. The we got to the front desk. They must have had better things to do than greet guests since... More

A MUST MUST MUST for lovers of wine and food. A GREAT time overall, enjoying absolutely fabulous foods and fantastic wines from the world over; conversing with Chefs, winemakers, sommeliers, in a Southern hospitality environment and ambience. Superb staff, wonderful customer service and great place for entertainment, relaxation and meeting new people. Not a golfer - no need to be... More

If you love golf and golf history, you can't beat Pinehurst and The Carolina. Walking the halls where golf greats have passed, seeing the many, many photographs-both in the hotel and the golf club house-of the history of the place, standing at the club house looking down #2, it's like you're a part of the history. The food, service, and... More

This is an amazing place. It doesn't get any better than sitting in rockers on the porch at night drinking Carolina tea, just like who knows who else over the past 100 years. The rooms, awesome. The food, delicious. The breakfast buffet, perfect. The history of Pinehurst and golf memorabilia adorning the walls , incredible. If you take a trip... More

This is a must do event if you are into food and wine. This is my 10th time attending this wonderful event in this rolling hills area of North Carolina. Of course if you are a golfer, you can play the famous Pinehurst #2, home of the US Open this year. Great food, great chefs, fantastic wines and great entertainment.

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...
