Great Winter Golf Day

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Got us checked in, down to the range, told us the greens were cut and rolled. Course was in amazing shape. We had the place to ourselves. Played in 3.5 hours. Sunny and 55 little bit of wind. Going back soon.

Great Value and Conditions!

I cannot wait to go back and play this course again. Amazing resort quality conditions at a fair price. Friendly staff. Pace of play was wonderful until last 6 holes when a group of seniors backed everyone up. No ranger in site but considering time of year and weather conditions I suppose that was to be expected.

Love this course

I doubt you will find a better course at a price this good! Even though there has been a lot of rain recently the course was in great shape. Greens roll smooth and true. Layout is great with a lot of variety. Not much water which is nice too! Will definitely be playing again!

First class place

Really love this course. Excellent value for the money. Great layout. Challenging, but not brutal. Fast true greens. Spacious tee boxes which are important to navigate the angles on the many doglegs. Possibly the finest bunkers I’ve ever played out of. Perfect sand. Not too thick or too thin. Nice spacious clubhouse with fabulous hand made bloody marys at the bar. We drove an hour from Durham but it was WELL worth it.

Perfect

This course was wonderful. The tee boxes are level, fairway grass is perfect. Greens are fast, hole placement was liked somebody was very upset about working Thanksgiving morning and took it out by putting the holes in the most ridiculous impossible places. Overall this was a great course.

Great course; will come back

My parents live down in Pinehurst. I have visited 12 or more times over the past decade to the area. I play every time...but never played this course. Got a good deal on Masters Saturday. Was a great time, course is very nicely set up. longish but not killer. I will return. Absolutely

A surprisingly fun and interesting course

My thoughts going into Talamore was that it was going to be a “typical” resort course and really not pose any strategic decisions. I thought it would be more flash (the deep pot bunkers) and not as much substance. I was proven wrong very quickly. I started on the back 9 and let me tell you, that is a fun and excellent 9 holes of golf. Every tee shot gives you options, and the greens are intriguing in their slopes and angles. The bunkers are placed in perfect spots for the holes and really come into the decision making.
Since we played the front 9 second, I was already sold on the golf course when we played what I considered to be the weakest stretch of the course. Holes 1, 3, and to an extent 4 give you a very soft opening and not a whole lot of decision making. If I had started on this nine, I would have held to my “typical” resort feel for a bit longer. But that gradually starts to change, and by the 6th hole, the golf course really picks up again I think. 7-9 are a great closing stretch of solid par 4s, each with its own challenge and visual appeal.
The conditions of the course are excellent with very little else to be desired. Being nit picky, maybe a couple tee boxes weren’t cut low enough, and the occasional crab grass patch was found (these didn’t affect play at all and very few in number). Besides that, the fairways were perfect lies every time, the rough was fair, the greens true, and the bunkers perfect.
I really enjoyed my round at Talamore and had a lot of fun. I would have no hesitation playing it again. I suggest you play Talamore if you’re considering it. You will not be disappointed.
