Four of us (2 couples) travelled to golf in the Pinehurst, NC area April 17-22, 2007. We stayed at the Little River Farm Resort. It was as it looked on their website. We had a condo with 2 bedrooms (2 queen beds in each) and had our own bathroom and tv. The condo had a full kitchen - fridge had an icemaker, dishwasher, coffee pot, microwave, oven. There was a kitchen table and a living room area with a television, couch, chair, and coffee table, etc. It opened onto a small deck that overlooked the golf course - very nice.
We drove down from Port Perry, ON and stayed in Wytheville (another review coming) on the first day, got up and drove to the resort and played 18 in the afternoon. We had dinner at the bar - watching the hockey game playoff - great food - with drinks and tip - about $125 USD. We golfed at Seven Rivers Golf - nice, but its a course within a housing development - it was nice except for the snake on the 16th tee!!!!. We returned to the resort where the husbands played another 17. My friend and I travelled to Carthage which is about 5 minutes away to the Food Lion and picked up frozen lasanga, and frozen pizza for the next two evenings (we're on holidays - no major cooking! and stuff for sandwiches that we took with us the following day on the course and finished on the home trip. We played Whispering Woods the following day - nice again, but in a housing development.. We popped over to the village of Pinehurst and went to the golf course - spectacular - would love to golf there. If you go to this area, you have to check this out. We went into the village - beautiful, specialty stores - back to the resort!!! The guys played another 9 and then we had our pizza and watched the hockey game. Got up in the morning, checked out and then played our final 18 and then headed home - went as far as Morgantown, WV another review to come - eek!), then got up, travelled to Niagara Falls, ON and golfed the Grand Niagara - terrific, but shouldn't have had to stay on the cart path! and then home.
We'd play different courses if we went again with a package. We would include Little River. It worked well that the resort was on the course - no driving to a course if you've had some refreshments and so handy. The day we left, the Governor of NC was there for some fundraiser so it's nice enough that they do that kind of thing.
