Good value in Pinehurst
This course has a wonderful layout. Designed by Donald Ross, the holes are varied and interesting. The conditions could be better. Not terrible but not pristine. The price was great. The staff is very nice.
The course layout is great. However, the pace of play was terrible, which takes away from the enjoyment.
No one in the pro shop on a busy Saturday, and no Marshall helping with the pace of play seemed odd.
Efficiency of this facility has diminished from years past., but a great golf course.
5 Star Architecture, 1 Star Conditions
I was really excited when I was able to get a deal to play Southern Pines for $49. A classic Donald Ross design for $49 seemed too good to be true! Sadly, it was.
First off, Southern Pines is one of the best courses I've ever played from an architectural standpoint. The layout is fantastic! The course tumbles up, over and around the hilly property, and the greens are pure Donald Ross. It's so good.
Unfortunately, the conditions of the course were so bad that they were hard to look past. While I am usually not one to be overly critical of conditions, I feel like I have to here. The greens were the worst, with dead spots, weeds and scalped old cups all over the place.
The rest of the course had thin fairways and burnt out bermuda rough. They had overseeded recently, and some of the overseed was coming in, especially on the tees. But the overseed hadn't been mowed. On some tees it was difficult to tee it high enough!
I would play Southern Pines again, and I do recommend it because of it's architectural significance. But, I would love to see this course under new ownership that recognizes what they have and invests to keep it in the condition it deserves.
My favorite hole is the par 4 8th hole. It's a downhill par 4 that, if you're aggressive, you can get a short approach. The green is 100% Donald Ross...and don't go long!
Not 4 Stars!
This is the first time we have been totally unsatisfied with a course booked on GolfNow. The course was rated 4 stars...so we had no problem paying the $70 per person when we booked based on past 4 star experiences. Honestly, it was maybe worth half that. The layout was good...and we could tell this was a nice course at one time. However, today the fairways had been over seeded, greens were not bad but also not great. The rough was in bad shape...many bald spots around the course. The bathrooms were portable toilets.
Not worth the time or money
Very disappointed in this course. Thought it more upscale than it was. From the minute we pulled into the parking lot it looked a bit run down. The only positive thing we can say is that Carrie in the pro shop was very nice. Course in terrible condition - greens burned out around the edges and tough to find grass in many fairways. The pace of play was horrendous and when we asked about the 5-comes on the course we were told that was normal. Starter was not friendly and almost rude. Halfway house closed early. We could not wait for this round to end and will never go back unless things change dramatically. Luckily we had a better day at our next course the following day.
The fairways and greens were great, a couple muddy spots. The range, rough and cart paths are in need of much improvement. Lots of deep ruts and broken concrete. Could be a great course with some serious care. The staff members were very friendly and helpful.
Conditions of a Beauitful Donald Ross track
First of all the greens were beauitiful. The rest of the course was sickening. Very disappionted.
Love this course
One of the best deals in the Pinehurst area. Conditions are great. Will definitely be back.
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.
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
Still love it
Second time playing this course and it was even better! Fairways and greens in great shape. Fabulous course for the price we paid!
Pure joy playing the course
Was alot of fun ...generous fairways in width and roll. Greens tough and undulating. Never could get the break right. Beautiful layout.
