Nice layout but very poor green conditioning
We enjoyed the layout and feel of the River course but the greens were in very poor shape and the lower holes were saturated. If the greens had been better, I could see how the course would merit much better ratings.
Whispering pines - river course
Course was in much better shape last year. In past, would have recommended to friends.
Great layout but greens were terrible
Played this course every fall for 40 years. Love the layout. Lots of water. Unfortunately the greens were awful this year and we changed our bookings for the remainder of the trip. Will come back if they renovate the greens
We always play The River Course when our wives are with us. It is very fair for them as they don't hit the ball very far. It is challenging enough for the fellas. The fairways in the greens were in Immaculate shape. Price was exceptional. This is about a 50 minute ride for us, but well worth it. Only criticism is that some of the bunkers the sand is too hard period on one hole I had to put out instead of using my wedge. We love the course. Just wish it was closer to where we live.
Good layout, good condition
Had played course before but not in a couple of years. New management group - Brown Golf - doing a good job in improving course condition. Definitely worth playing.
The river course
Course in great condition, it plays short and requires shot making skills which I don’t have them all lol, but I really enjoy it , back 9 has water on most of the holes .. can’t wait to play the pines the other side
Greens are way past replacement due date. No ranger and one group had entire course backed up.
A funny thing happened on the way to....
I've played this course dozens of times over the last 25 years. It's always been a nice course, not special. The fairways and greens are always in good shape but this course tends to stay wet for a few days after heavy rain. Of all the courses in the area I rate it a "C+." Monday I took some friends there for the first time and they were blown away by the beauty of the course, the layout and the conditions. Sometimes its nice to see something through new eyes. We had a great day and definitely recommend you give it a try!
Whispering Pines West Course (River)
I had played this course many years ago but did not fully recollect it until the 7th hole a long uphill par 5 that I couldn't reach the top of the hill then and did not today either. Course layout is a little tight off the tees visually but has some room in the fairways. Front nine and back nine are similar except the back nine has water in play on 5 holes. Conditions were good today, greens rolled well, bunkers were nice. Recommend this course and there is also a East course.
We came to Pinehearst for the weekend. Found this course on GolfNow. Great course and great value. We will definitely play it again.
Nice golf course. Both courses are challenging, however the Pines is the best
Greens were pretty firm and fast, and often required an accurate approach shot to hold. Fairways were in good condition. Pine needles off the fairways often gave you a chance to recover from a bad drive, although making par may be difficult. Bunkers had plenty of sand. Several interesting long 5s. Most par 3s were short irons. Overall, was a fun course with good greens that I'd like to play again.
Course was pretty and fun. The layout was not to difficult but was a challenge for a high handicapper. The greens needed a little work but beside that we were pleased and will play here again.
I enjoyed this course. It has a good mix of challenge - dog legs, sand, water. Got a good rate on Golf 18 Sandhills. I have played both 18's and enjoyed the experience on each.
Sand traps need lots of attention. Greens rough and hairy. Fairways descent. This is a $25.00--$30.00 course.
RIVER COURSE, WHISPERING PINES
I played the Pines course the week prior and enjoyed it very much, so decided I would play the River course. The greens had been recently punched so they were a bit slow and bumpy, but are coming back nicely. This is a fairly short course. I enjoyed the front nine but really liked the back 9. The course was great fun to play. I purchased my tee time on Golf Now. recommend it.
