Tranquil setting and in pretty good condition for early spring. Greens were fast and rolled nicely. Lots of mounds and slopes if you miss a green made for tough chipping. Somewhat repetitive tee to green. Local knowledge would be helpful for scoring.

Not exactly Mr Persinality at check in.

Nice restaurant for after the round

Greens were in real shape. That ends the positive stuff. The fairways were just ok, but no cores on most sprinkler heads (on four occasions hurting for balls lost in fairway and finally found in sprinkler). Tee boxes a disaster. Funky layout with 5 par 3s and 5 par 5s. Lots of target golf holes.

The real problems were with what I assume were residents, walking aimlessly around the course o driving carts (with no clubs on them) randomly around the course.

It has been a while since I've played here. You have to place the ball in certain locations & that still doesn't mean you will score well. The greens are turtle back, the ball rolls away from the hole. It gets frustrating then funny after seeing your playing partners do the samething. Had a good time. Grate price.! The staff was friendly. Cant wait to go back & play.

Where else in the Pinehurst area can you play a course with greens this good, a staff that is super-friendly, GPS on the carts, and at such a great price? You can't. The greens were super fast and true. Staff is always friendly. Wish they had a driving range. I will be back.

Nice course, but kind of tough in some ways. I didn't have a very good day on the course, but I'm not sure it was Whispering Woods fault. It was a challenging layout. The tee box layout pics were not to scale...it showed everything to be pretty much straight. It was hard to figure out where the best spot to play the ball to would be. It seemed the yardages might have been off a little too. But it may have just been me. I may give it a try again in the future, to make my final decision.

Well-kept secret. Course design is very engaging, placing a premium on placement and distance. Greens are very challenges in terms of slope, firmness and speed. Plan to use every club in your bag in this track. Exceptional value and very friendly staff.

Short and Interesting. Greens were in good shape, fairly quick with a lot of slope form back to front. Fairways and rough were OK, some good spots some bad spots. Tee boxes not very good, played back tees and seems like they've neglected most. Little to no grass and very uneven!

NOT COMPLAINING - Paid $11 Hot Deal

For $11 would play there over and over again, not for rack rate though.

Had first tee time, maintenance wasn't aware. Nearly got drenched on 4 green when sprinklers came on and next 2 holes had to wait for sprinklers to turn off before approaching green.

Wow, these new greens are tough to read, especially if you are not used to reading Bermuda greens, then you are in for a frustrating day. Greens were in fantastic shape, just beware of slope and the grain. I have not played here in a few years and they are doing a some good work bringing back a good track. The natural areas and areas off the fairways are very true to the area.
