We went on a mini golf trip to play pine hurst before the U.S. Open and it was everything we were expecting. From the time we arrived until departure we were well taken care of. Top notch staff that was very friendly. Food was very good, we ate at the bar a grille every night but it wasn't your normal... More

I know I give a lot of excellent ratings here on tripadvisor but that's because I am almost always lucky to stay at excellent places.... Pinehurst Resort and The Carolina is just another example of how a Real Resort should be run. Immaculate property when we pulled up i the car. Staff that seemed genuine interested in making us welcome.... More

Entire experience was awesome! Love everything about the resort town and area. Staff were phenomenal! When we were walking down the hall leaving our room, the... More

"Sorry Sir, we don't sell those passes on weekends when many of the members show up". Incredible! When I initially called from the room I... More

We went to Pinehurst for last min family visit. We booked the hotel to enjoy the holiday experience. Hotel was sold out but we were offered condo. THESE ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE SAME. We checked in late with luggage and baby so we were pleased to be given a map and directions at check in but once we... More

The staff was phenomenal in all areas of the hotel. They were especially attuned to my needs when I had to be in a meeting and the Ryder Cup Lounge had not opened yet. The staff got my party seated and served in 20 minutes even as they were preparing to open for business. If you have a special need... More

I stayed here for a week long conference. The staff was phenomenal and friendly. I loved the history of the building. The carpets in the room look somewhat worn. Houskeeping had left stickers from children's clothing on the lamp, lightbulbs that didn't work and someone else's clothing hanging on the bathroom door when I checked in. They did however remedy...

If you are ever in Pinehurst for Thanksgiving, are looking for an excuse not to cook, come check this spread out. Its epic. All the usuals, plus amazing sides. A few of the goodies we tried this year were a duck pasta, pumpkin cheesecake, and a couple tremendous soups. The carving stations are great. Hard to put it all into... More

If you haven't been to Pinehurst Resort you don't know what you are missing. For golfers there are 9 challenging courses. If you like to play tennis or run or bike Pinehurst has it all. The Spa is second to none. I have been there over twenty times over 25 years and they keep improving without losing its charm. Usually... More

We live in Pinehurst and love to go over to the Carolina. The atmosphere is truly majestic with all it's southern charm. The restaurants are great. The Ryder cup lounge is charming. A great pace to visit for golf , tennis , and all else.
