Feeling the history with each step, the Pines Needles Golf Course is designed by Donald Ross in 1950’s in order to serve the residents of Sandhills, North Carolina and allow them to experience an excellent golf trip like never before. Awarded by Golf Magazine as one of the two Silver Medal Resorts, this destination offers warmth, character, and comfort. Towering long-leaf pines and chalet style lodges which are recently renovated offer great accommodations for tourists and residents to wanted to experience a touch of history and culture while enjoying breath-taking views. Balconies and terraces allow visitors to gaze on the 18-hole championship course.
The Pines Needles Golf Course is ranked number 4 all over North Carolina. In 2004, this resort underwent a full restoration in honor of Donald Ross’ name and legacy. John Fought headed the restoration with accuracy and respect to the original form of this golf vacation destination which later on turns out to be a success. Sand bunkers were rebuilt and refilled, fresh sand is installed, as well as the dramatic contours and dimensions of greens. John based the restoration by carefully putting up together some vintage aerial photos of the course.
Measuring more than 7,000 yards, the Pines Needles Golf Course has been serving their clients fully after the success of the restoration. Reasonable hotel accommodation rates and membership fees are being imposed in order to maintain the resort. Various golf vacation package deals are also being rendered to golfers who wanted to save a lot of money while still enjoying their vacations.
