At the end of July I managed to play Pine Needles for the first time. It’s currently being looked after by architect Kyle Franz and he been working his magic here just as he did over at Mid Pines.
Most of the work is restoration centered but with great improvements. It has a similar look and feel to Mid Pines though is not quite as strong a layout, fairways are very wide and forgiving and there is short grass everywhere outside of the waste areas.
It’s full of solid holes and is a very fun course to play for all levels of golfers. A definite must to add to any trip to the Pinehurst area.
