My husband and I stayed at the Carolina while attending golf school in mid-March. The Carolina is a grand old southern hotel with gracious hospitality and service. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The decor is conservative old south and reasonably up to date, and the bathrooms are spacious and modern. Somewhat typical of many old hotels, we and others in... More

What an experience! Even though we only stayed one night on the way to The Masters, we got to play No. 2 and ate in the Carolina. The history and pictures throughout the building is amazing. The friendliest staff in the country work there . Highly recommend that if you have an opportunity to visit and play there, that you... More

We started a 5 day golf trip at The Carolina last Monday 3/31/14. We arrived around 4:00 to check in. They had 8 of us in the Donald Ross Villa. WOW. It was right next to The Carolina main hotel/restaurant. As we pulled over to park an auto detailer was on hand to spit shine my Corvette. The villa had... More

A four day business stay-best business trip possible. Staff was knowledgeable, helpful and attentive. Food was very good-rooms large and comfortable as I stayed in a villa with adjoining parlor that allowed space and comfort. Standard rooms in the older part are smaller and more cramped. Ground are simply beautiful even though the weather was still cold and the growing... More

A group of 30 friends from around the country was seeking a memorable golf experience at a resort with excellent food, service an and golf. We also needed sufficient activities for non-golfers and a location that would have multiple courses. From the reception and shuttle service to the outstanding choice of courses and dining venues, we all had a wonderful... More

This might be my hundredth stay at the Carolina. Always a pleasure and familiar. It is beautifully decorated and retains its old charming creaky floors. The dining is great and the spa superb. The village is a pleasant walk away and while there is lots of golf you can also hear a fine symphony (the North Carolina Symphony) if you... More

There is nothing bad to write about this property, everything I experienced exceeded my expectations. I came here due to the reputation of the Golf Academy, which is superb, but found the entire experience, lodging, restaurants, lounges and most importantly, the staff wherever I went, to be truly outstanding. Specifically with regards to the Golf Academy program we had participants... More

We visited the Pinehurst Resort for an epic golf vacation and were blown away at the customer service. Everyone that we dealt with at the resort truly understands and provides amazing customer service. From guest services, Derrick took care of any questions and needs, Traci at the Holly Manor Restaurant 1895 grill was top notch, and even AJ at Pinehurst... More

Just came back from a long weekend at the Pinehurst Resort. We stayed at the Carolina Hotel, which is the main hotel on the resort property. The hotel was great, and the resort itself was top notch. This was a weekend get-away for my wife and I. I played golf while my wife enjoyed the spa. We both had the... More
