First time back since they replaced the greens. Unfortunately, they need a couple of years to soften up. Right now it’s almost impossible to hold the with a long iron. Fairways are still wide open, lots of slopes, fun to play

I love the old school Pinehurst feel of this place. Customer service is top notch, the course was in excellent condition and I had a great time. The greens were punched last week 6/26 and are already playing nicely. Look forward to returning soon.
