Pine Needles Golf Club

Pine Needles Lodge & golf club is situated just 1 mile from the centre of Southern Pines and four miles from Pinehurst Village. One of two (Mid Pines being the other) silver medal resorts Pine Needles is rated number 22 in the Top 100 US golf courses. The golf course originally opened in 1927 and has received a recent meticulous re-build under the watchful eye of Donald Ross.

No course has played host to the Women’s U.S. Open more than Donald Ross’ classic Pine Needles in the last 15 years.

This wonderful golf course provides generous fairways and demanding greens. There are compelling changes in elevation throughout the course, but it’s still very walkable and most do prefer the stroll.  The course has been extended from its initial routing, but still offers a pleasurable configuration with short distances between tees and greens. Wayward shots are common to catch a bed of pine needles to rest on; much the same as the back gardens of almost every household found on the golf course. Like many of Donald Ross’ courses, the excellence of Pine Needles is in the finer details of the course as it lies across the natural terrain rather than trying to dominate it. Pine Needles is yet another nice Ross routing that can be played again and again without gimmicks to get tired of.

The third hole is the signature hole on the course a 145 yard Par 3 that is easily the most famous hole at Pine Needles, this par 3 postcard plays over the water to the green surrounded by a motley crew of bunkers. The sloping green from back to the front provides a clear picture of the green and the large trees provide an attractive background.

Pine needles is a really strong offering that appeals to a wide range of golfing abilities and a lovely golf course to enjoy on your next golf holiday to the Pinehurst region of North Carolina.

Another fantastic golf course from the USA’s most Historic golf region.
