“Save your money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

and play #4 and #8, or at Dormie. This is a world class course, and in pretty good condition. However, the sand in the bunkers is poor to fair, and for $464+ I expect more. A major challenge, as are most courses that host majors, and you have to work on each shot.

“Great golf course”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Golf course is in great condition and has been renovated for the 2014 Opens. Play is generally slow (~5hr). Take a caddy ($55 + tip of $40-$80/bag) to get the best out of your round.

“So much history !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

#2 is a fantastic golf course. Don't let it overshadow many fine golf courses that it surround it. #'s. 4,7,8, and 6 and wonderful courses as well. Challenging, picturesque and not as expensive at the end of the day. The best part of Pinehurst is you can play a different course every day for 3 weeks and not play the same course twice.

If you can, try to find a way to get on Forest Creek Country Club. It's the club that makes you want to join instantly. Two Fazio courses set on one of the most beautiful settings I have ever seen.

“Pinehurst #2 Donald Ross's Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Pinehurst #2 is a delight. The course is challenging with many waste bunkers, and roll off Donald Ross greens, but there is no rough and the woods are clear enough to get a shot. The course is beautiful and in great shape. The caddies are knowledgable and very helpful. The pace of play can be very slow, with 5 1/2 hour rounds. The pro shop, locker room, and Donald Ross Grill are all good. Great venue for the 2014 Open.

“One of those courses you can not miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

This one of those courses if you have the opportunity to play you can not miss, It has so much history to it and yes the course layout makes you work most of your shots and you have to read the greens. Get a caddy and get some stories about the place from him and not just to carry your bag and read the greens, they all have a lot more to offer. There is not a bad hole on the course and there is plenty of GOOD ones.
