Great course. Greens were stellar as always. Little unkempt around the edges. Rough could be trimmed a little

Perfect conditions; well maintained

Was first out with buddy so cruised around in 3 hrs. Course was in great condition. Greens firm and fast despite recent rains (6+ inches in prior week). Practice green was immaculate and prepared you for the round. Driving range was very nice and you hit off grass. Some bunkers had ruts from rains and a few had water.
Course is spread out so not walker friendly as long walks from greens to tees.
Holes are varied with nice mix or doglegs left and right. Not a tight course but trouble lurks if you spray it.
Would definitely play again.

Good track. Greens need another 2 weeks. The fairways are just fair. Tight lies. Overall very good. I would play again. $100 is high. $80 is more like it.

Amazing experience

Golf course was stunning. Can’t even count the amount of times someone in our group mentioned how beautiful a certain hole looked. Pace of play was amazing, we didn’t see anyone the whole day. The starter Lou was a treat. Wanted him to ride around with us the entire round. He was great... just a great Pinehurst course. Could be my favorite in the area... make sure you play here if you can!

Best greens in NC

Talamore is a must play in North Carolina. With the quality of golf in the surrounding area, I would put the greens at Talamore up against any around. You WILL NOT be disappointed playing this course. Wish we played another 18 right after. Also, the starter might have been one of the nicest and most professional people I’ve met. MUST PLAY!!!

Great Value and Course

Coming from out of town I just wanted to go with a place that had an early hot deal. Talamore was that place. The course conditions were great. The greens were perfect and very receptive. The course states that number 16 is the #1 handicap and im not sure why because the toughest hole of the day was for sure #1. Decent par 5 right out of the gate. Staff was friendly. Would definitely play here again should I be in the area.

Must play this gem!

My first 5 star review goes to Talamore without hesitation. Wonderful and extremely friendly staff. Great and challenging course layout. Course management is helpful to score well on this track and there are a few holes that reward hitting bombs. Fluffy and true sand traps. Well manicured fairways. Nice carts with accurate gps. Dirt cart paths were smooth as pavement. But the real victory are the pristine greens! Fast and smooth like the ones on tour. If you’re thinking about playing Talamore, do it and enjoy.
