“Hallowed ground and a challenge for golfers at all levels.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Not the prettiest course, but the history makes a round there worthwhile. Course is very challenging, but it was fun to play. A caddy is a necessity on Course 2.

“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 via mobile

#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.
