PINE NEEDLES LODGE & G.C.
Southern Pines, N.C.

Dom Furore

What began as the exclusive Knollwood development nearly 100 years ago has evolved into two classic Donald Ross designs, expertly restored, sitting across a street from one another. Mid Pines is more rugged, Pine Needles the championship venue, a three-time U.S. Women's Open host and site of the 2019 U.S. Senior Women's Open. Course-wise, Mid Pines belongs in any Pinehurst itinerary, but there are better accommodation options.
