Best course we played during our golf in Pinehurst. Course layout and hole routing are pure genuis. This is a golfers course and by far the best deal we got for our money.

This course is in fantastic shape as of October 2007. The Carolina is literally all about golf. It is the exact opposite of the Pinehurst resort in almost all good ways: there are open tee times all week long, and play is fast; the course is cut out of a beautiful area of pines with great undulations (Pinehurst is one course on top of another, with no seclusion except for No. 2); the course is a fantastic value at about $50 per player with a cart (Pinehurst No. 2 is now $490/round--ridiculous).

This course might be the best value in the entire Pinehurst area, with The Legacy a close tie for second (also around $50 and a fantastic course).

Usually in great shape. Don't expect to score the first time you play it. Wetlands in play on many holes. Needs a real club house.

A jewel of a course that lies directly across the street from the pinehurst/southern pines airport. Another Palmer gem that is both challenging and rewarding. Great scenery and chaalenging golf make for a fun afternoon loop around this layout.
