Course Reviews


Excellent course. Overpriced maybe, but I thought the best of the Pinehurst resort courses. The course plays well for the average handicaper. Layout is much more interesting and scenic than 1 - 6.

This is the one course that is not part of the main resort at pinehurst. As such its range is severely lacking - warm up at the main range then drive over is my suggestion. The course itself is a 'Resort Course' it has plush fairways, and bunkers that while they line the fairway are usually out of the range of most golfers. It is completely different from any other course in the Pinehurst repertoire and is thus worthy of a round, but it deviates away from what I would term a traditional golf course. When I was there I was there for a traditional golf vacation and thus was a bit dissappointed in #8 but your experience may differ.

#8 is probably the most unique course at Pinehurst. When you step on to each tee you will say, "This is new." There are downhill holes and uphill holes. There are long par threes, like the 8th, and short par threes, like the 5th. By the way, it is the only Pinehurst course with no houses.

I played #6 #2 #8 eight was by far the best course at Pinehurst I will go back for that course, and try #4 and #7 number 2 was overrated

Pinehurst #8

#8 is a course that's mostly used by guests of the Pinehurst Resort. Members of Pinehurst Country Club can play courses 1-6, but #7 and #8 require a "guest fee". It's a very fair course that has excellent maintenance. The greens are difficult - as are all the Pinehurst courses. It's the only one of the 4 Pinehurst courses that I played recently where there was no "member" in our group. Since our entire foursome had never played there, we didn't have anyone with local knowledge. It really didn't hurt us any, because everything was pretty straight forward. There were no tricks (traps or water) on the few blind shots that we had. The staff is very accomodating. Since it is pretty much for resort guests, they want to make a good impression - and they did. It's the only Pinehurst course where there are no homes or homesites on the course.
