Nice Collegiate Course
This is the home course for The University of Virginia golf team. It is also part of The Boars Head Inn resort so there is lodging, dining, and other facilities nearby. I played the course several times in early winter so course conditions weren't prime but overall in good shape. Front nine played a bit easier, back nine had tighter fairways and more elevation change. There are some challenging par 3's, most over water including an island green on the back. There is a large practice range and putting green on site. Overall a nice course that challenging for better golfers but playable for high handicappers. I found the staff was very accommodating during my stay.
A Must Play Course
One of the most unique courses you will ever play. Located just outside the Pinehurst/Southern Pines area only a few minutes drive from the Pinehurst Village and area hotels. While visually intimidating with large sand mounds and seamlessly acres of waste areas the fairways are generous and well conditioned. The greens are generally large however most are undulating and offer lots of pin placements. There are no actual bunkers on the course since all are played as waste areas. With numerous blind shots and dramatic changes in elevation the course is challenging but a great experience. Staff was great and gave free yardage books which are most definitely needed. Based on other courses in the area the rates are fair and most hotels can make a tee time for you if you request it.
