TLC

The course itself is wonderful. The greens and fairways are fine.
However, the cart paths will rattle your bones and almost damage carts. Concrete is broken up so bad on many cart paths. The exits from tee boxes on cart paths and entrances to greens on cart paths would be my number one TLC project to make this a more enjoyable tract to experience.
#17 has underground wires exposed on the ground on the left side of the fairway. The railroad ties from the driving range steps to the steps to many tee boxes are worn out and need replacing.

Very Disappointing

Southern Pines has one of the very best layouts in the area with great elevation changes and strong variety of holes. Unfortunately the course conditions are not good. The fairways were decent and the greens good, but the rest of the course is not being well maintained. The rough was sparse with way too many washed out areas. The tees on the front had not been mowed. The bunkers were essentially sandless with significant damage to the faces. For the cost there are many better options to play.

Great Course, beautiful views

Had a great round here. Had played this course many years ago when the kids were younger and it was still as great as we remembered. Very scenic and peaceful. Great track, excellent layout, lots of challenging holes but very fair and fun. Highly recommend this gem

Good day to play. I could play at my own pace and not have to rush or wait. Course not crowded. Course is challenging. Layout is good. Greens were a little bumpy due to being aerated 3 weeks ago. Good thing was the fairways were not saturated with rain water and you could drive your cart anywhere.

Nice surprise

We played in no so nice weather but this course made up for that.The course layout was a great challenge the fairways not too narrow and the greens were a good size. Everyone we talk to were very friendly and would come back anytime

Good Layout

Loved the course layout, challenging and fair. Could use some work on cart paths and had signs of the course age, but still good value. Would definitely recommend playing it if in the area.

Beautiful layout , fairways green in February!

Played there Feb 8 2019 . Sunny 70 degree day. Parking lot was filled with cars, good to see as I know some courses have difficulties getting players to come. This is my second time playing here, the first time the fairways were wet. Today the carts were aloud to be driven all thru the course as the fairways were nice and dry and as green as could be for February. I really enjoy the Donald Ross layout. Need to be able to play of uphill and downhill lies as it's a hilly course. Price very reasonable .

Donald Ross Course

Barbara inside the pro shop was very very nice. I had great conversation with her before and after the round. I was a single and played about 3:20 minutes. I could have played way under 3 hours but I knew I have a few people ahead of of me so I hit a few ( many more ) ( shhhh ) extra shots and putts. There was also four holes that was cart path only but not cause of problems with the course. We have had so much rain in the last 6 months they still had some wet areas, not to bad. But I understand where the course is coming from. They over seeded so nice and green but once again they had a lot of thin grass, ( and so does most of the course in the Pinehurst area cause of the rain ) but this is winter time and a course the grass does not grow. Greens were in good shape and rolled nice. All in all I turned on my music and had a nice day.

Inflated price

I bought a tee time through Golf Now for $69. I get to the course and the rates are $51. Since the rain was coming in the afternoon I requested our group to tee off early. There was nobody else on the tee! To do so I had to pay another $51! I am very disappointed in GolfNow and with Southern Pines golf course. Complete rip-off.

Not what I expected

Pace of play was good but I expected more when the hot deal was almost $80. This is my 3rd round this week and was by far the third best course.

Awesome Course

May not seem long on the card, but this is classic Donald Ross. Elevation adds to the yardage, as well as the difficulty if you are not totally on and hitting fairways and greens. Course is in MUCH better condition than a year ago. New management has really done a great job on improving the course. If you want to test your game, play this course. Highly recommend!
