Anderson Creek Golf Club

PGA Golf Champion Davis Love III returns to North Carolina with a traditional design that reflects all that is great about golf in the Carolina Sandhills – fairways lined with longleaf pines, natural areas highlighted with love grass, and perfectly manicured course conditions.

Bayonet at Puppy Creek

This Willard Byrd design was sculpted through the rolling hills surrounding Puppy Creek. Created under a traditional concept with 18 distinctive holes, the Bayonet is a course that the golfer will never tire of playing. Complementing Byrd’s first-class design is 30 years of turfgrass experience by owner and operator Carolina Turf Farms, Inc. Carolina Turf and Bayonet have combined resources to produce one of the premier public golf facilities in the Sandhills, ensuring “Tournament Conditions” everyday. Many consider The Bayonet as the “Best Kept Secret in the Sandhills”.

Deercroft Golf Club

Deercroft Golf Club, known as the sleeper of the Sandhills since 1983, is often overlooked due to its off-the-beaten-path location. Golf Digest called Deercroft the “best kept secret in the Sandhills” and gave it a three ½ Star Rating in their “Places to Play” guide. A championship course, Deercroft’s Bermuda fairways and Bent greens provide an enjoyable and challenging round. It has been ranked in GOLFWEEK’s top 50 courses for five years and hosted the 1986 and 1987 PGA Tour Qualifying Schools.

Since 1968, Foxfire has been a premier golfing destination in the Sandhills and Southeast. Thousands of passionate golfers, including famous names, have enjoyed its rolling fairways and challenging greens under the towering pines and Carolina skies.

The Grey Fox and Red Fox layouts feature tree-lined fairways, strategic bunkers, and generous bentgrass greens, offering a rewarding challenge for all skill levels. Enjoy the natural beauty and great conditions at Foxfire.

Hyland Hills Golf Club

Hyland Hills’ exceptional location crowns the Pinehurst Area. Located on one of the highest elevations in the region, the tall pines, spark- ling blue water and spacious vistas form a perfect backdrop for 18 of the finest holes ever designed by golf course architect Tom Jackson.

Legacy Golf Links

Legacy Golf Links is a Nicklaus Designed golf course and is proud to be one of only three courses in the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, and Aberdeen Area who has played host to a USGA National Championship.  Legacy has been awarded 4 1/2 stars by Golf Digest and was selected as one of the Top 50 golf courses in the country for customer service.  In 2009 Legacy was voted in the Top 25 Public Courses by Golf Worlds Readers’ Choice Awards.  This award winning layout represents classic Sandhills golf with rolling hills and tall Longleaf Pines.  Legacy features four of the best par threes in the Sandhills area and you won’t soon forget Legacy’s 18th hole; properly nicknamed “The Bear”.

Longleaf Golf and Family Club

End the day with a meal at Heartwood Grill & Greens, then putt on the lit 9-hole putting course and relax by the fire pit.

mid pines inn & Golf club
Mid Pines Inn & Golf Club consists of over 250 acres of the most beautiful countryside in North Carolina. The Georgian Style Club overlooks the vintage Donald Ross designed golf course and is a Sandhills Classic. Mid Pines was purchased in 1994 by LPGA Charter Member Peggy Kirk Bell, her family and outside partners. Peggy Kirk Bell and her family own the Pines Needles Lodge and Golf Club.

Nestled among the longleaf pines of the Sandhills area, Mid Pines golf course remains virtually unchanged since opening in 1921. In springtime, the flowering dogwoods and azaleas surround the small, undulating greens and narrow fairways, typical of Donald Ross-designed courses. Pops Lounge, Terrace Dining Room and many of the hotel rooms offer scenic views of the course and practice greens. Step back to the 1920s and experience the way golf was meant to be played.

mid south golf club
Mid South Club is one of the Carolinas most attractive private residential golf communities. Five hundred forty five acres of longleaf pine forests, lakes and gently rolling hillsides provide a backdrop for a place of beauty and serenity. The Mid-South Club Arnold Palmer signature golf course offers it’s members a challenging yet enjoyable championship layout on which to test their skills.
pine needles

Designed in 1927, Pine Needles offers the opportunity to play golf the way it was meant to be played. The traditional Donald Ross course meanders through the rolling hills and longleaf pines of the Sandhills area. This peaceful setting still challenges golfers of all skill levels. Both Pine Needles and Mid Pines, our sister property, permit and encourage walking year round. Complimenting the course are the extensive practice facilities and 4-Hole Practice Loop.

Pinewild Country Club

*Ask about our "Players Package"!*

The two championship golf courses, Magnolia and Holly, are stunning and challenging for all skill levels. Designed by Gene Hamm, Magnolia is a "traditional masterpiece" that has hosted the PGA Tour Qualifying School, the 1995 LPGA Pinewild Championship, and US Open Qualifying. The Holly, a Gary Player Signature Course, is an area favorite known for its panoramic beauty, "risk-reward" layout, and top-notch greens. It has hosted many USGA Qualifying events and Carolinas PGA Championships. Both courses feature Bermuda grass fairways and velvet bent grass greens for an exceptional golfing experience.

7 Lakes Country Club

Designed by Peter Tufts III, godson of Donald Ross, the highly acclaimed course is consistently awarded a 4 star rating by Golf Digest, is ranked as one of the Top 100 courses in the state and, has been recognized as the National Golf Course Owners Association “Golf Course of The Year” in the Sandhills of North Carolina for 2010, 2011, 2012

Southern Pines Golf Club

Routed over rolling terrain, it can be challenging for golfers of every skill level.  As a classic layout, there are few forced carries of any great length, and many greens are open in front to allow for the bump-and-run style that was characteristic when the course was built in 1923.  As a mature course, Southern Pines Golf and Country Club is especially lovely in the Spring when the azaleas and dogwoods are in full bloom.

Talamore Golf Resort

Since its opening in 1991, Talamore’s 18-hole course has received international acclaim. Ranked among the top courses in the Pinehurst area, Talamore was designed by architect Rees Jones to be visually striking and exceptionally enjoyable. The 7,020-yard course, ranked in the top five new courses in America, emphasizes strategy over length. Rees Jones designed it to require thoughtful play, making golfers consider their shots carefully. Talamore captures the essence of classic Pinehurst golf with a diverse and challenging layout, ensuring an enjoyable and fun golfing experience.


Pinehurst golf has never been the same since the opening of Tobacco Road.  The Road is a course of such uncommon beauty, it will capture your imagination and thrill you with its creativity.  We feel rewarding accomplishments are seldom easily gained but pulled off with the odds seemingly against you.  We do not guarantee your best round the first trip ’round The Road, but we are certain you will remember the ride!  Prepare yourself for a battle like no other.  Whether you are planning a golf trip to the Pinehurst area or wanting a new place to call your golfing home, look no further than our Mike Strantz thrill ride.

Tot Hill Farm Golf Club

Tot Hill Farm Golf Club is another thrilling design by famed golf course architect Mike Strantz. The moment you arrive on the first tee your heart will race with anticipation. The experience is guaranteed to be one of the most exhilarating rounds you’ll ever play. Most of the holes are bordered by beautiful rock formations and meander through thick forested terrain. The golf course demands a player to think his or her way around the property. Negotiating the winding fairways and the undulating greens makes for one of the most challenging rounds of golf, not only in North Carolina, but in the entire country.

The Country Club Of Whispering Pines

This semi-private, member-owned Country Club features two top-rated championship courses in the Carolinas, designed by Ellis Maples. The Pines Course, a par 72 at 7,094 yards, hosted the 2000 Women’s Eastern Golf Association championship and offers large greens and rolling fairways lined with pine trees and bunkers. The River Course, a par 71 at 6,570 yards, is shorter and requires precision, with smaller greens and water hazards on 12 holes.

The clubhouse includes a Golf Shop, full locker rooms, a restaurant, bar, banquet area, driving range, practice pitching green with sand bunkers, and two putting greens.

Whispering Woods Golf Club

Over thirty years ago, Ellis Maples, inspired by a picturesque, rolling tract of land in the Pinehurst area, carved out another challenge for golfers in the Sandhills. His work, the Whispering Woods Golf Course, stands as a credit to him and a pleasure for many. Dan Maples, son of Ellis and renowned golf course architect in his own right, described Whispering Woods this way: “It’s a golf course designed with the average player in mind, but good players won’t find it a pushover. The well-groomed condition of the course enhances the design  and complements the roll of the land. Golfers experience left to right, short shots, long shots, uphill and downhill holes. And the quick bentgrass greens will keep you honest.”
