Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club

Pinehurst, North Carolina, US



Pine Needles

One of our two Silver Medal Resorts as awarded by GOLF Magazine, Pine Needles offers character, warmth and comfort.  Built in the 1950's and nestled among towering longleaf pines, our chalet style lodges provide exceptional comfort with recently renovated rooms and all of the luxuries of home.  Balconies and terraces allow you to gaze upon the championship course, a Donald Ross gem that was recently ranked #4 in North Carolina.

In 2004, Pine Needles underwent an important restoration project.  Under the watchful eye of Ross aficionado, John Fought, the greens were rebuilt, bunkers were dug out and fresh sand was installed.  Contours and dimensions of greens were restored to their original forms as shown by a series of vintage aerial photos of the course, returning the course to its original glory.

Following the restoration, the Pine Needles course measures more than 7,000 yards in length with some holes having been "stretched" to return the shot values that Donald Ross intended for this course.  Fairway bunkers are now placed so that they serve as the kind of hazard that Ross intended for the tees

Mid Pines

The Mid Pines course remains exactly as Donald Ross numbered and routed the course in 1921.  Impeccably manicured to modern standards, Mid Pines is a classic gem, a rarity among Ross’s masterpieces because it is exactly as he crafted it more than 88 years ago.  Even so, Mid Pines has played host to many national competitions including the 2002 USGA Senior Women's Amateur Championship.

Many people have characterized the course as "pure Donald Ross" because of how it fits the land where it was built.  It has few forced carries, artificial or contrived holes.  It's been said that Mid Pines was never conceived as a daunting task to the finest players competing under championship conditions...Mid Pines was intended  simply as a fun course with adequate challenge for members and guests of a private club and resort.






Nestled in the fragrant pine forest of southeastern North Carolina, Pine Needles and Mid Pines resorts are conveniently located in the heart of golf country.  The resorts are located across from each other on Midland Road, just one mile from the quaint historic downtown Southern Pines and four miles from the Village of Pinehurst.
