Good Course / Good Value

The Pines course was our "inexpensive" course this year and we generally enjoyed it. Greens were in good shape. Fairways had not totally greened up, but that may be due to the wet winter. We will probably play it again on some future trip

Good value for the money

We played the Pines course today and will play the River course tomorrow. The layout was interesting and enjoyable and the pace of play excellent. The course would benefit from some attention but was great value overall.

A favorite classic design

Played this course several times each fall for the past 40 years. It is in superb condition from tees through greens. Course has two par 5's we call the mother holes. You'll love em or hate them, but you'll want to play them again.

The course has accommodations, called the villas. Great for groups, you can get 8 interconnecting rooms.

The second course is a great design but needs green renovations

My report above praised the pines course, that is sometimes called by it's old name, the East course. The River or West course was terrible

Putts were true

Not sure if this just an easy course or I just had a great round. Maybe it’s a little of both. I enjoyed it a plan on playing it again soon.

Good Challenge

I enjoyed this course. First time players will hit to some places they wish they hadn’t. Course knowledge helps. Greens above average condition. Tee boxes could use some attention. Natural course with no real rough. Hit fairways and you will have a good lie and stance. Trees on both sides of wide fairways. Sand traps are very much in play. I look forward to playing again someday.

Classic old school course

What fun course to play! Some of the trickiest greens I've ever played and they were in great condition. It's definitely a course you need to play a few times before you start scoring low. Conditions of the fairways and rough were a little tight and hard but the greens were top notch. It's a true throw back course with some great holes. I definatley would play again.

Just average

2 groups of 5 some holding up play couple bad spots in the greens that were just redone. Bunkers need some sand and not rocky dirt glad I got a hot deal. No starter so they sent me out as single.

Scenic great price

A very good example of a non Pinehurst Golf Course in the Pinehurst area that is an excellent organ and shows a good example of what Pinehurst golf courses are. We played in the winter so the fairways word dormant so I obviously they were not that great but the greens were unexpectedly smooth and the layout was very scenic. Staff went out of their way to help.
