Here are the best golf resorts to play in 2022:
The New Course at Talamore
The New Course at Talamore has been redesigned to unlock the course’s hidden potential. On this course, the greens were restored to the original 1991 Rees Jones design and include a 20% larger putting area and 60-inch TifEagle Bermuda green collars. Plus, the course feels even bigger due to its open fairways and the removal of 75% of its bunkers. And the course was reshaped, allowing for better cart access and creating faster play by 30 minutes. That all translates into significantly better playing conditions.
If you think the bunker removal means the course got easier, think again. The course has 12 challenging and strategically placed old-world-style sod bunkers. That is until you reach the Clubhouse. There you can catch a live feed of all the bunker action.
Finally, Talamore is famous for its llama caddies. While they no longer use llamas as caddies, they are still on site. All of this makes the New Course at Talamore a completely unique and satisfying course to play this year.
Mid South Club
Another unique course to play in Pinehurst is the Mid South Club. Don’t let its idyllic pine trees, lakes, and rolling hills fool you. This Arnold Palmer signature golf course is a challenge but still enjoyable. Be sure to bring your sand wedge for the 14th hole, as there are plenty of sand traps and bunkers to test you.
This prestigious course is semi-private. That means play on this course is limited exclusively to club members and guests of Talamore Golf Resort. So be sure to book your stay at Talamore if you want to experience the Mid South Club.
Now that you know where you want to play, here’s where to stay on your golf trip to Pinehurst:
Talamore Golf Villas
The Talamore Golf Villas give you a resort-style stay with residence living. You’ll have your choice of a two or three-bedroom set-up, which features a fully equipped kitchen, linens, towels, and washer and dryer. And you’ll get spectacular views of Reservoir Park and the gold course. You can walk out your back door and be on your way to golf. Another amenity? A BBQ pavilion where you can get fresh Carolina BBQ!
If you want to go all out on your stay, choose the Palmer Cottage, which is conveniently located between the Talamore and Mid-South golf clubs. Not only does this cottage have room for up to eight of your golf buddies, but it also has the game room of your dreams. When you’re not on the golf course, entertain yourself with the pool table, darts, or 65″ TV. It also has a backyard for grilling, playing cornhole, and a fire pit. Imagine playing some of the best golf of your life at The New Course at Talamore or The Mid South Club and returning to the Palmer Cottage—a golfer’s dream!
