Anderson Creek
Spring Lake, NC
Architect:  Davis Love III
Opened in 2001



Davis Love III, 1997 PGA Championship winner, designed Anderson Creek Golf Club, his first signature course in North Carolina. Anderson Creek was rated 4 1/2 stars by Golf Digest in 2008 and was the winner of the “Best New Course in NC” award for 2001. This traditional layout reflects all that is great about golf in the Carolina Sandhills – rolling emerald fairways lined with longleaf pines, natural areas highlighted with love grass and perfectly manicured course conditions. The greens’
large roll-off areas and significant undulations offer a glimpse into the classic Donald Ross architecture seen throughout the Sandhills of North Carolina. Davis Love remarked, “Anderson Creek is one of the finest courses I’ve played, and is more than ready to host a major golfing event.” The club’s proximity to Interstate 95 as well as to the historic village of Pinehurst, make Anderson Creek a must play for golfers traveling to the area.

Southern Pines Golf Club
Southern Pines, NC
Architect:  Donald Ross
Opened in 1906


The Sandhills Secret
Southern Pines Golf Club is an old Donald Ross design, a short course, but still a good challenge.  A benefit of Southern Pines is that you get to play a great course, great layout, without paying the premium price of other Ross designs.  Enjoy the most traditional aspects of the game of golf - rolling terrain, uninterrupted shot making and a journey back to golf from its beginnings. As a classic layout, it is challenging for golfers of every skill level, with few forced carries of great length and many greens open in front to allow for the bump-and-run style that was characteristic when the first 9-holes were built in 1906.  It is rare to find a Donald Ross course in such original condition, where no re-routing, no housing, and little re-working have affected the course in its 100 year history. Southern Pines Country Club is a walkers delight and is ideal for winter play.

Talamore Golf Resort
Southern Pines, NC
Architect:  Reese Jones

Opened in 1991


Located in the heart of the area on Midland Road and designed by Rees Jones, this course is visually striking & exceptionally enjoyable. Considered one of the top courses in the area and friendliest staff.


The New Course at Talamore…Remastered
The goal of the 25th anniversary Remastering Plan was to reimagine the tract through a clever combination of restoration and rejuvenation projects that unlock the course’s hidden potential.
Greens are being restored to the original Rees Jones 1991 design, resulting in a 20 percent larger putting surface, and the addition of generous 60-inch Tif Eagle Bermuda green collars. The new Champion Bermuda putting surfaces will provide significantly better playing conditions than its bent grass predecessor and will put Talamore’s greens on par with the other top courses in the area that have already made the switch to Bermuda greens – Pinehurst No. 2, No. 8, Country Club of North Carolina, Pine Needles, Mid Pines and Tobacco Road.
Playability and Pace of Play Enhanced
The course feels and is bigger with the fairways opened up, limited rough and the removal of excessive bunkering, with 75% of all bunkers eliminated. Improved cart access and the reshaping of certain areas to help cart flow will increase pace of play by at least 30 minutes per round.
Unique Challenges Introduced At Talamore
“Scotland and the NC Sandhills Collide” with the addition of 12 strategically placed, old-world style sod wall bunkers. Talamore is the only course in the Village of Pinehurst/Southern Pines area with multiple sod wall bunkers and soon to come sod wall bunker cams, providing a live feed of bunker action straight to the Clubhouse for spectator enjoyment.






Tobacco Road Golf Club
Sanford, NC
Architect: Mike Strantz
Opened in 1998
3 1/2 s


“Thriller Golf” best Mike Strantz’s masterpiece. Uncommon beauty & imagination feeds the soul while challenging every aspect of your game. You’ll talk about this one for years to come!  Sanford, NC

Village of Pinehurst golf has never been the same since the opening of Tobacco Road. Described as “Pine Valley on steroids” and “golf’s rock and roll thrill ride”, Tobacco Road Golf Club is certainly unique. Carving his way through an old sand quarry, the late Mike Strantz created one of the most celebrated and talked about courses in the world. Consistently rated amongst the nation’s best, Tobacco Road showcases 18 drop-dead signature holes set amidst rolling Sandhills and golden love grass. The scene is so breath-taking you will want to bring along your camera to forever capture the greatness of “The Road”.
We feel rewarding accomplishments are seldom easily gained but pulled off with the odds seemingly against you. Playing at a length of 6500 yards from the Ripper tees, Tobacco Road was rated as high as second in slope in both North and South Carolina just behind the famed Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, site of the 1991 Ryder Cup. Therefore, we do not guarantee your best round the first trip ’round The Road, but we are certain you will remember the ride! Simply put, Tobacco Road will be the most fascinating, heart-racing and fulfilling golf experience you will ever play.
