The course was rather challenging to say the very least! It was a beautiful course, very rugged in natural elements, and riddled with difficult greens and challenging fairways. The homes on the holes were beautiful and charming, and there were a lot of creatures, both big and small, constantly surrounding us while we played. If you're an avid golfer and... More

Going to a Golf even in Pinehurst is FANTASTIC, but if you are blessed that it would be on Pinehurst @ 2. I have been going to golf tournaments in Pinehurst for a very long time. Since before the age of 17. I was thankful that I had an Aunt that worked there and her and my favorite friend(Her daughter... More

I am a single figure golfer who has been fortunate to play many of the world's great courses and had always wanted to play No2 I was not to be disapponted. The only downside was the staff at the pro shop checking me in for my round, maybe they were having a bad day but they were generally unfriendly and... More

The latest revisions to the old course has been very successful. The stage is set for the US Open in June 2014. Beautiful and extremely challenging.

Outstanding experience at Pinehurst, NC. The golf, accommodations, food and service were exemplary. Stayed at The Holly Inn. It's Pinehurst's original inn, built in 1895. Full of charm and character with a great bar and restaurant. The dining at the Carolina was as good as I've had anywhere. Try the succulent duck breast. Tasted so good I ordered it two... More

Unfortunately our expectations were very, very high. Hosting major tournaments and hearing Pete Dye say this was the best course (or his favorite) of the courses he did not design, set our expectations. The course was in good condition. The caddy (Jamie) was excellent. The course is a good one but nothing unique like National, Pine Valley, Seminole, Cyprus, etc.... More

Incredible place, this should be on the bucket list if not already - ask the caddie master for Rocky if you want to make putts!

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.

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.

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.
