Ranked #25 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World
A three-time U.S. Open Site. A three-time winner of Travel + Leisure Golf Magazine’s Best Golf Resort in America award. The home of the famed No. 2 golf course. Pinehurst Resort seems to have it all when it comes to great golf destinations.
Around the world, Pinehurst is where the American golf story is rooted, and where it continues to flourish. Most know of its modern history – with stories like the Payne Stewart putt that won the 1999 U.S. Open. But locked with its archives are thousands of moments that define each generation for the past 100 years. Pinehurst is America’s first golf resort, and continues to be one of its' best.
Pinehurst No. 4 had previously been ranked as one of North Carolina's top-five courses in the 1990s, but it slipped to No. 16 in the most recent Best in State ranking. The course, which was designed by Donald Ross in 1919, had previously been remodeled by Tom Fazio—who called the No. 4 restoration one of his proudest remodels to date.
Now, Hanse and his team have put their own signature on it, giving an ode to some of the Ross elements and creating larger natural “sandscapes” with native vegetation, including wiregrass and broom sedge plants, which matches the look of the restored No. 2, while being perhaps slightly more playable than No. 2.
A true work of modern art, Hanse has created a very strong second reason to visit the famed Pinehurst Resort.
Jack Nicklaus designed this masterpiece set amidst the long leaf pines, lakes and streams of The Sandhills. The only Nicklaus course in Pinehurst, this 18-hole championship layout features classic Nicklaus architecture: wide fairways, lush course conditions and undulating putting surfaces that test your mind and your true golfing ability.
No. 9 is 7,122 yards from the tips course and is as beautiful and distinctive a course to be found in all of Pinehurst.
THE CRADLE PAR THREE COURSE
Nearly 120 years after golf arrived at Pinehurst, The Cradle is born, a nine-hole short course that even the newest to the game can enjoy.
Designed by golf architect Gil Hanse, the Golf Channel calls The Cradle, “the most fun 10 acres in all of golf.” Mere steps from the Resort Clubhouse, it is the same area where, in 1898, Dr. Leroy Culver carved our first nine holes out of the sand. Over the next century, Pinehurst came to be referred to as the Cradle of American Golf.
MID PINES GOLF CLUB
Ranked #8 in Top 100 Golf Courses in North Carolina
The Mid Pines golf course remains exactly as Donald Ross crafted the course in 1921, a rarity among his masterpieces. Impeccably manicured to modern standards, Mid Pines is a classic gem that has played host to many national competitions including the 2002 USGA Senior Women’s Amateur Championship.
Many people have characterized the course as “pure Donald Ross” because of how it fits the land where it was built. It’s been said that Mid Pines was never conceived as a daunting task to the finest players competing under championship conditions, but rather the course was intended as a fun course, but with sufficient challenge for members, guests and professionals.
PINE NEEDLES GOLF CLUB
Ranked #11 in Top 100 Golf Courses in North Carolina
Pine Needles’ award-winning golf course is the first in the nation to be awarded four U.S. Women’s Open Championships. Named the #4 golf course in the state by Golfweek, the course was designed by the legendary Donald Ross in 1927, and meticulously restored by Kyle Franz in 2017.
Donald Ross provided generous fairways and challenging green sites. There are strong elevation changes throughout the course yet is very walkable. The course has been lengthened from its original routing but still provides an intimate routing with short distances between tees and greens. Wayward shots will likely find a bed of pine needles to rest on; much like the backyards of virtually every home found on the course.
SOUTHERN PINES GOLF CLUB
Ranked #40 in Top 100 Golf Courses in North Carolina
Southern Pines opened as a 9 hole course in 1906. Donald Ross did extensive work and completed all 18 holes in 1914. Although it is typically not as "manicured" in and around the course as other resort courses, Southern Pines is an original Donald Ross design and certainly on our list of must play courses.
The unending appeal of this course is the succession of one fine hole after another, this being the direct result of Ross's elegant routing of the tract over the rolling, sandy hills. Walter Hagen, Patty Berg and Sam Snead have all played here and enjoyed the challenge.
Neither length nor water are factors to contend with, nor is there anything forced or contrived about the course. Every hole features at least 20 feet of elevation change so it remains interesting throughout the round. Many greens sit on the high points of a hole, allowing Ross to create deep greenside bunkers.
TOBACCO ROAD GOLF CLUB
Ranked #50 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World by Golf Course Architecture
Established in 1998, Tobacco Road is younger than many of the courses it has surpassed in its accumulation of accolades. Architect Mike Strantz was a student of the Golden Age Architects whose turn of the century designs set the standards while contributing to the development of the principles of golf course architecture and design.
Strantz allowed the rolling terrain to evolve into one of golf’s most uncompromising designs. Beyond the panoramic views and stunning vistas lies a course that tests all of a player’s faculties. Five sets of tees allow a player to undertake the course at a level worthy of their skill; however, one should always keep in mind – it was Strantz’s goal to test “a player’s eye, determination, and wits.”
Residence Inn of Southern Pines
The Residence Inn by Marriott of Southern Pines is the perfect choice for all suites accommodations. The spacious suites offer separate living and sleeping areas, a fully equipped kitchen featuring a full-size refrigerator, stove and/or cook-top, dishwasher, toaster, microwave, pots/pans dishes, etc.
A two-bedroom/two-bathroom suite is quite large and perfect for golfers. Start your day with a complimentary full, hot breakfast buffet and end your day with their complimentary evening Happy Hour Monday-Wednesday 6-7:30PM featuring light meal, complimentary beer, wine, and soda.
THE MANOR INN
Located a short walk from the Carolina Hotel is the casual Manor Inn. It has been completely updated and renovated, with the work being finished late Fall of 2019.
Built in 1923, the intimate Manor features 42 rooms including suites and adjoining rooms. All rooms feature modern amenities such as WiFi and flat screen televisions. As with all resort accommodations, guests of The Manor Inn enjoy access to resort restaurants, pools, spa, fitness center, golf and more.
