Fell in love with this hotel and resort!! Laid back with friendly and very helpful staff! Loved evenings in rockers on the front porch with a glass of wine! Corner hotel room was perfect! Be sure to try fried green tomatoes in the Tavern!! Golf is challenging but keeps you wanting to come back again!

Pinehurst truly lives up to its reputation as golf's best community. The golf and hospitality are first rate, and there are great options to explore between rounds. Could not recommend it more highly for those looking for a golf getaway

Walked in , staff remembered me (us/ group)from last year. Nice way to arrive. Their are places one visits that you do get what you pay for. Thus is one of them. Food first class, even reception food had been thought out and very accurate to the theme it represented. Love the Spa and of course golf. I feel like... More

There is no doubt that the Pinehurst Resort caters to golfers, as it should with its' historical significance to the game. But it is also a lovely place to visit for non-golfers. It has a casual sort of elegance throughout the property, impeccably groomed landscaping, a very nice outdoor pool area with cabanas and umbrella'd tables, long sweeping corridors with... More

I was in the main hotel building in a large, beautiful room with two queen-size comfortable beds with lots of pillows and plenty of towels. As I am past 90 and walk with a cane, they were considerate enough to place me near the elevators and the concessions (ice, etc.).

I visited the Carolina for a conference recently. As I drove in, I couldn't help but to say "wow!" The hotel and grounds are magnificent. The staff was very accommodating and helpful throughout my stay. The lobby was inviting and the perfect place to sit and talk or wait for friends before heading back out. The building is old, but...

I have traveled all over the US and this is one of the best vacations spots I have ever visited. Pinehurst reputation is well deserved and second to none. Make sure you take a caddie on 32 and play #4, #5 and #9. If you want a excellent dinner make sure you go to 1895. If you want great ribs... More

I was recently at the Pinehurst Resort and Spa for a business conference. The resort itself is BEAUTIFUL! As soon as you walk on the property you get a since of peace and relaxation. There are two large porches in the front with rocking chairs and ceiling fans so even an afternoon in August didn't feel unbearable. A nice cool... More

A great historic hotel with terrific service. Comfortable rooms, could use a little updating but nothing that detracts from the great service. Worth the$$. Good food in the main dinning room. They Ryder cup lounge food is a little disappointing. If you love golf you need to come and stay and play here.

My wife and I have been "coming home" to Pinehurst for 16 years! We have basically grown up with the resort as we were only in our mid-20's when we made our first golf pilgrimage. Through the years, we have made so many friends with so many members of the staff it has become truly like family. Pinehurst is not... More
