Would Play Again

This is my 3rd time at Talamore. I enjoy the course and it is a super deal for a Hot Deal. Was disappointed in the 5some in front of us. For a course that nice and for it being in the Pinehurst area, I expect the starter/marshal to not allow that. I drive a distance to avoid 5somes at our local course! Staff was friendly and the course is well laid out.

One of my favorite course in Pinehurst if not the best.

What could I say Talamore, just keeps getting better and better. I have been here since the beginning where there was no homes and only one road to get in and out of the course. Resse Jones did a fantastic job on building the course and as times have change and so has the course. The new improved course of taken out of the many bunkers and redoing the greens to the New Hybrid has been great. I use to know ever green by heart but even though some shuttle changes they have remained great and now no ( or very few ) ball marks. There are still working on the course on opening it up, you know can see a few holes from the others which it just makes it more appealing. Also they set it up so you no longer have cart path only like they did for over 20 years. Unfortunately we have had way to much rain these past 7-8 months there are spots where they had to block off and I wish people would watch where they are driving and have common sense cause there were tire tracks cause it was still wet in other areas. Although the fairways were paint which make the course looks green, I think of all the other course that I have played still has the best fairways with grass in the area.. Yes they might be thin cause of the winter, I thought they were in the best shape.of the courses that I have played. Great job everyone.

Hospitality

First time playing this course. The course has an excellent layout and I really enjoyed it. There was one thing that stood out above all, the hospitality of the staff. Pro shop employee and the starter gave me great tips on how to play the course. I felt welcomed and I had a great round of golf.

Hidden Gem

Have played many of the local courses and resorts and at the last minute decided to play Talamore. Very friendly staff and despite heavy rainfall the days before the course was in remarkable condition. Greens were incredible! Fast and true, the best I’ve played regardless of price. Our group will definitely be back to play .

Amazing day

I have played many “high end” courses, and I must say this was one of if not the best one. Had an eight o’c Tee time, and it was a little chilly but a perfect morning.

The course was in surprisingly good shape after a week of rain, greens were quick, but rolled true. If I had to point out one negative was that there seemed to be a little confusion between the guy who put the bags on the cart and the starter as to what position the pins were that day.

Other than that, could not ask for a better day.

Will definitely be back

A little disappointing

I played this course two years ago, and the conditions were much better.

This course has the potential but the tee boxes were garbage. Way overpriced, but a tremendous staff

Visitor from Jacksonville Fl

Thoroughly enjoyed this course. I was visiting friends in Greensboro, and wanted to play something different this time. Love the rolling, hilly fairways and the course scenery. Not often you see an Alpaca on a golf course! Greens rolled phenomenally well.

Booked Talamore as a Hotdeal

Talamore Round on track to exceed 6 plus hours

We arrived to a packed parking lot and practice area. The course was also filled with golfers. I asked the office staff if they were hosting an outing and was told no. While waiting on the first tee , the starter informed us that they had one group of 170 golfers from Virginia who had gone off both the first tee and the 10th tee. It took us a total of 22 minutes to complete the first hole . When we arrived at hole #2 there was a fivesome still waiting to tee off ..At that point we turned around and went to play a Pinehurst course which we finished 18 holes in 3hours and 18 minutes . Please call me to discuss this experience.
