Best Rate Guarantee

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.

Pine Needles Fairway

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.
