I have played Mid Pines many times and find it difficult, with challenging greens and needing careful placement both off the tee and on the greens. Having said that, it remains my favorite Donald Ross course in the Sandhills. Pick your tee carefully. A good...More

This was a great course. Just long enough to provide a real challenge and those quick greens were tough to hold but nothing like Pinehurst #2. The steak sandwich is good at the restaurant, but I wouldn't stay at, dine in, or generally hang out...More

A Donald Ross design just like #2 down the road. Lovely vista on all the holes and challenging long par 3 holes. A real treat this course. Good greens and you always have a shot

We stayed across the street at Pineneedles. Had a room in one of the villas close to the Clubhouse. King size bed and about a $100 per night. Well worth it.
