5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you are an avid golfer and want to experience the ultimate in golf, be sure to check out Pinehurst No. 2 where the back-to-back men's and women's U.S. Opens will be played in June 2014. This course will take you back in historical time and provide a real challenge to golfers of all levels. If you want the ultimate experience, try walking with a Caddie.

“The U. S. Open next year - but it was ready for us!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Pinehurst #2 is classic golf, updated for today's equipment. Select the proper tees in which to play, for maximum enjoyment. But distance isn't the thing - beware of the Crenshaw/Coore update from last year, and keep it in the short grass - as there's no rough, but only sand and wiregrass to enhance your mistakes. Greens complexes are devious yet fair, and the caddies help out all they can. But it's up to you to get out of your troubles. But what the heck, you're still on one of the great courses in the U.S.

“Classic Donald Ross”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

There are numerous Donal Ross designs in the Sandhills but this was his baby. The redesign by Coore & Crenshaw have returned it to much of its original appearance. At number 2, it's all about the greens and achieving the correct angles into them. Take a caddy to assist in your course management and you will get to experience one of the most historic golf layouts in the world.

“Loved it, even with the high score!”

Great condition, was in awe of the difficulty. Greens are very hard to read get a caddie. Nothing to dislike.

“Recent renovation is fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

I've played this course for almost 25 years. The recent renovation has drastically improved the look and playability of the course. Easily one of the best courses I've ever played.
