While this course has a long history, it has not been well cared for. It needs maintenance on fairways, teeboxes, and paths. The dirt paths were filled with ruts and not always near tee boxes, i.e. no turnarounds. Signage was poor. Best were the greens...More

As a couple with handicaps in the 16 & 28 range, this is a very difficult course. The false fronts, a Donald Ross trademark, are a challenge to play. Any shot hitting the green will likely rocket off into the many sandtraps or at least...More

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
