Easily the most overrated course I've ever played. You pay and play here for reputation. If this course didn't have the history it would just be the equivalent of playing an average municipal course with tricked-up greens.

FANTASTIC golf experience! Friendly staff, great Holly Inn rooms. A bonus of staying at the resort is unlimited use of the driving range and range balls. Course no. 2 was very challenging-super fast greens, lots of bunkers, and difficult terrain.

Definitely get an experienced caddy. A knowledgeable caddy knows how to read those greens which is needed on course no. 2. Some of the other courses at Pinehurst don't require the need of a caddy to be played well.

I was fortunate to have Willie McRae on the bag. What an incredible amount of knowledge and experience this wonderful man has! Besides his wealth of golf advice, he is a joy to talk to and spend some time talking to.

My overall experience at Pinehurst and on course #2 was well worth the money and time.

One of the gentleman I was playing with said this course was living off of it's laurels and he's right. The course is simply not in a condition to be charging $300 a round. They are rebuilding about six of the 18 holes for the 2014 US Open so the course is torn up on the edges on 1/3 the holes; there are quite a few patches of bare grass particularly in rough areas. That being said the greens are as advertised. It takes a perfect shot to stick or you end up in one of the many greenside bunkers which are in good shape. Staff & caddies are amazingly friendly and will go out of their way for you.
I would play it again to check it off of the life list; but if it wasn't Pinehurst NUMBER TWO I would never spend this kind of money on this course.

This is what a golf course is supposed to be. Ross lets the greens defend themselves. No gimmicks. He also gives you alot of options around the greens. Definitely get a caddie. These greens are fast and have some crazy breaks.
Worth every penny.

This is one of those courses you play to say that you played it. Do not expect to play well, and do not expect to remember a single hole after you have finished. While the course is immaculately kept, and the greens are faster than the cars in the Daytona 500 it is otherwise a forgettable track. You will find that no hole has the feel that it takes your breath away, but you will not feel like any hole is poorly designed either. If you get the chance play with the caddie, but think for yourself on the greens, the caddy I had twice told me that the putt I was looking at would break uphill. Enjoy the ambiance take advantage of the range but don't expect the course itself to wow you.

You have to play it once but that is enough. Enjoy the the round with a caddie! Soak it all in out side after the round with a cool drink. # 4 was also a great experience. If you have the time, go down the road a ways to Tobacco Road G.C. WOW!

One of Ross' better courses. Not nearly as good as Seminole or Leo J. Martin.

A course every golf lover must play. I love the fact you have to walk, and if you can take a caddy, even better. Not very difficult off the tee, but you'll be hard pressed to find better greens. Super expensive, but the history of the course just makes the experience different from playing anywhere else.

Overrated greens are the only thing special about the course, #8 was a better golf course from tee to green, way over priced, North Hampton in North Florida much better course and you only pay 50 to play not 375

Pinehurst No. 2 is the best golf course that I have ever played. If you are ever in the Pinehurst area you must play No. 2 and some more of the Pinehurst courses like No. 4, No. 8, and No. 7. The best thing about No. 2 is the greens. They are extremly difficult and can really test your short game. I like the course because you don't always have to hit your driver straight and I never hit my driver straight. What you must do well to score on the course is have good approach shots, putts, and chips. The experience was also great. Walking down Hogans Alley, hitting your first tee shot, and climbing up the hill to the 18th green. The whole thing is priceless.

Obviously, one of the best courses in the world. The #2 course is easily in my Top 5 I have played. The Donald Ross greens are everything they are reported to be. Take a caddie...and listen to everything he/she tells you to do! The only drawbacks are that they really don't have any memorable single holes on this course, and the resort itself was a bit dated, but some people like that sort of thing. The overall experience is outstanding.

#2 playing with caddie

#2 course the condition was simply fabulous, walking down Hogan's path would bring such thrill as if you were playing the open. Lots of history on the course. Getting off the tee box was easy, wide open fairways. The difficulty is from fairways to the green. Fast green and always on the hill. Short shots will roll back off the green slightly long shots will roll to trouble in the back of the green. Need a good caddie. The experience was good but not worth the price.

Pinehurst #2

I think that the #2 course is overrated. It's not nearly as scenic as #7. No carts are ever allowed on the fairways, so it's better to take a caddie and walk. The greens are as difficult as you see during the recent US Open tournaments, but that is the only really difficult part of the course. It's a historic course that follows the contour of the land, but I would not pay the high price that they charge to play there again. Once was enough for me.
