Site of the 2006 Women's US Open
"I love the golf course. It is, I have to say, one of my favorite Open golf courses." – Nancy Lopez, LPGA Hall of Fame member
In 2001 when the LPGA played its Open at Pine Needles, Kendra Graham, director of women's competitions for the LPGA, summed it up best. Pine Needles, she says, "is a classic; it's such a memorable golf course. You need every club in your bag and you remember every hole after you play it one time. The holes feel like they've been there forever."
The Bell family, owners of Pine Needles, as well as Mid Pines, has always treasured this course laid out by famed Scottish born architect Donald Ross and have maintained it with loving care for you and their other guests. Now, golf architect John Fought of Scottsdale has restored the course to its original glory. "We want to remind people that this is a Donald Ross golf course, and it will remain a Donald Ross golf course," Fought says. "We're getting back to Ross in every way we can. Some elements had been lost, and we've had to step back in time to rediscover some of the things he did."
Nestled among the longleaf pines, Pine Needles' 12 rustic lodges provide exceptional comfort plus all of today's modern conveniences. On a visit here, you're going to remember the friendly staff, the pine paneling, crackling fireplaces and golf memorabilia that put you in the mood for your next 18.
The chalet-style pinewood lodges are connected by covered walkways to the clubhouse, which contains the full-service dining room, Rough Lounge, and the golf shop.
After your clubs are put away and the sun has set on another beautiful day of golf, the cozy lodges of Pine Needles invite you to relax. Step onto your balcony or terrace, and let the warm Carolina night embrace you, or stay inside for a good movie.
