“One of the best resorts in the country”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We spent four nights at Pinehurst over the 4th of July and found it to be one of the best resorts in the Country. We've stayed at Pebble Beach, The Greenbrier, Boca Raton and others and found Pinehurst to be right up there with them all. All the staff were very highly efficient and knowledgeable, but not stuffy at all. They really made us feel welcome and at home. We were originally booked for two nights but extended to four. We didn't go for golf but ended up playing a round on #6 since we were there longer. Very nice top shelf course. The food was wonderful at all four restaurants, especially The Carolina.

We will definitely be going back.

There is not a better place to enjoy the game of golf and genuine southern hospitality than Pinehurst. The golf courses are challenging yet user friendly. They are in outstanding condition and beautiful to view. The accommodations are pristine and the service is the definition of the true south! A must visit for golfers, vacationers, with or without children. It has it all!

I wanted to give the resort an excellent rating but I can't. This is not Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons, but it is very good. Our room was a little tired as was most of the resort, I understand this is an older property but that doesn't excuse it from some paint and a few other things. The housekeeping staff seemed a little lazy as there was garbage in the bushes outside our door including what looked like latex or plastic gloves. The food was good. The bed was comfortable. Pinehurst is a lovely place to visit and the people friendly.

We stayed on the Champions package which was just a few days after the US Opens were over. The common areas are very nice and the staff is fantastic. It doesn't get a perfect rating because the air conditioning in the room is quite loud when it starts up and woke me up many times, and the water pressure was a bit week. Otherwise the room was well appointed, had a good HDTV and channel selection, large bathroom, safe, and multiple pillow choices.

Although not inexpensive, Pinehurst is a wonderful experience. We did a three day golf package. Great golf, great food and great service. Visited after the US Open, so pace around the resort was relaxed. Golf courses were not crowded, pace of play was excellent. Only disappointment was that No 2 was closed to convert the green (we knew that before we booked). Our room was very comfortable and spacious. Dinning was very enjoyable, great breakfast at the Carolina.

Outstanding place with great service and wonderful personality. The rooms are spacious, clean and a history lesson in the game of golf and class. James, the General Manager was very helpful in making arrangements for an return visit. Very appreciate the level if service and personal attention. The Golfing and Food experience was a Major event as well!

I highly recommend this property. Their staff is all about making your stay the best it can be. The staff was extremely helpful in getting us in an out of the property since we had to check in a few times as our plans kept changing. Hats off to the front desk staff.

Room Tip: The Carolina is great. Close to everything, but so are all of their properties. Park the car and let...
