I wouldn’t recommend it at its current price. It’s charging close to mid pines and pine needles, and although the course compares favourably, the club amenities are sorely lacking. Until the entire experience is significantly improved, they shouldn’t be charging big boy prices.

Top three favorite courses

I've played many of the courses in the area (PH No2, Mid Pines, Pine Needles, etc) and this is my favorite. The restoration is amazing. It feels like No2 but without the insane requirements to play.

The staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly and the replay rate is great. I would highly, highly recommend.

Love the scragglyness of this course. Reminds me of playing in Scotland.
This is a gem of a course.

Windmill greens

Outstanding layout and conditions. Greens are a bit too much for me. Enormous DR false fronts with massive undulations. They are in great shape and thankfully a bit slow or it could have gotten really ugly.

Still getting it ready but great layout and challenge

I had not played it before the renovations, but really liked the course now. They're still working on it, some areas betqeen holes were muddy but course itself was pristine.

And wow, challenging course that was really fun to play. Good elevation changes on some holes, false fronts as expected.

Amazing

This course used to be a low point in the area, but now is in my top 3. The greens are pure and fast, and the renovations are fantastic. This is a must play for the money when making a trip here.

Played yesterday for first time post-restoration. This course was already a favorite in the area beforehand, but now it sits just behind #2 and #4 for me. I think this course sits on the best piece of land in Pinehurst and has the most potential because of it. The layout and topography of the place remind me of Augusta - I'm serious. Removing trees really opened up the course and especially helped the par 3's, which I consider now to be absolutely top-notch. The new greens were perfect yesterday, and the resurfacing made them play much smaller than they appeared. Overall, I always felt this course could be so much better than it was, and it was already a great Ross course. I'm glad someone was able to invest the proper resources to help this place reach its potential. It's not fully there yet since it's only a month into reopening, but you can tell it's not far off.

Great bones but needs some tlc going forward.

A wonderful restoration. With the right maintenance this would be the nr 2 premier course in the Sandhills, right behind Pinehurst #2. The course is not finished and many of the "waste areas" are already covered with weeds. The sand was so beaten up with unraked footprints that my group lost balls in them. The greens were a great improvement over their previous versions - undulating, interesting and putting very true. The fairways are sparse in places and will need a while to grow in. They were also overly wet and very weedy in places. I hope the owners realize what a gem they have and put some money into maintenance. It's only been open a few weeks and is already looking worn.
