This reservation was a shot in the dark, trying to find a neat place to take my avid golfer nephew in honor of his high school graduation. Did it ever pay off! The course is a wonderful and scenic example of Donald Ross design: exceptional use of the natural terrain, lots of middle and long iron approaches for average length players, with options to run it up or fly it in; and wonderfully complex and subtle greens. The conditioning was immaculate, despite a good bit of rain in the days preceding: there were no soggy spots at all, though the drives also didnt roll out much, which added some additional challenge to the approaches. A staffer chased us down as we were parking to give us a cart, and range balls and a course guide were part of the package. The in-cart GPS made yardage estimation very tractable and navigation around the course easy (only quirk is that if the terrain gets too rough the cart goes REAL slow!). Mulligans, the course bar and grill, has a quizzical Ohio State University decor motif, but the burgers were great, and the home-made potato chips were a treat. Overall this is a high-quality and very non-pretentious club, with a real gem of a golf course.
The magic of Donald Ross lives here at Southern Pines Golf Club. The natural terrain that reveals each hole inspires the traditionalist and rewards the imaginative shot maker. All ability levels are accomodated with the diverse course conditions. By matching the slopes of the putting surfaces with the challenging green speeds, the play of the greens demand pace as well as direction for the successful putt.

A few months ago I sent you an email enquiring on the condition of the course. Your answer to me was....it will be the best course you play on your golf trip. On April 6th we played SPGC and I must say it was in outstanding condition. The layout is superb with all the elevation changes and has all the characteristics of a Donald Ross layout. It truly is a gem. Hats off to you and your staff for the fine course conditioning and also for your honest and accurate evaluation. Southern Pines will be a "must play" on our next trip to Pinehurst.
