Great Deal

Got a great deal to play here through Carolina Golf. Course is typically private and looks the part. Staff is friendly and accommodating even for us outsiders. Course was wide open and in great shape even though there was a great deal of rain the days prior to. Very fun course. Tough if you are struggling. Will expose weaknesses but very playable.

Package Mid South with Talamore for an Unforgettable Golf Trip

Golfers who are planning a golf vacation to the Pinehurst area have a myriad of golf courses and accommodations to choose from. There are countless golf packaging companies ready to voice their opinion. And, depending on your budget, you can play some pretty historic golf courses if you’re willing to fork out some dough.

As for me, I head to the Southern Pines area and two of the area’s finest golf courses with accommodations that are second to none: Mid South Club and Talamore. Both are part of the Talamore Golf Resort.

Mid South Club is one of the most attractive private residential golf communities in the Carolinas. With 545 acres of longleaf pine forests, lakes and gently rolling hillsides, it is scenery that you can appreciate. The golf course is not without its fair share of accolades. They’ve hosted just about any qualifier you can think of: U.S. Open qualifiers, Senior Open qualifiers, U.S. Amateur qualifiers, U.S. Amateur qualifiers, and a PGA Club Professional qualifier. Golf Digest considers them one of North Carolina’s 20 Best Courses. Golf Magazine listed them as one of the Top 100 Courses to Play in 1996, and the list goes on.

Mid South is an Arnold Palmer Signature design with some of the best greens in the Pinehurst area. They roll true and are fast! The course is highlighted by its challenging par 5s yet is best known for its finishing hole, a 368-yard par 4. On the front nine, you’ll find a lot of movement and undulation in the fairways. The holes are shaped so you cannot see the green from any of the par 4 and 5 tee boxes unless you are “Playing it Forward.”

Number 18 at Mid South is regarded by many visitors to the Sandhills as the best finishing hole in the area. From the White Tees, the hole plays 368 yards and is handicapped #3. It’s a dogleg right around the other side of the lake that you crossed on the 9th hole. Most players will want to hit their driver off the tee, but a quick survey reveals a very narrow landing area, and the water on the right side isn’t going anywhere. The fairway slopes left to right towards the water so aiming out high on the left side will usually bring your ball back down to the middle of the fairway. Success of the tee will leave a manageable approach shot over water, onto a large green protected by sand on the left. Like many courses across the pond, the 9th and 18th holes use the same green! It’s a fitting finish to a great round of golf!

Depending on your needs and desires, Talamore has several lodging options and the accommodations at Mid South are second to none — three-bedroom units with 1,800 sq. ft of total comfort. Everything in the condos is top-shelf and they need to be seen to be appreciated!

Talamore offers some incredible golf packages that include golf, accommodations, breakfast delivered to your door, and a pig roast on Mondays and Thursdays. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another golf resort in the area that offers so much!

When packaged together, the Mid South Club and Talamore are a formidable pair that will rival any two-course combination in the area. Throw in a few other local courses and you’ve got a golf vacation that will produce lifelong memories.

Great layout

It was wet so carts weren't allowed on fairways so that made it a 4 and a half hour round. Loved the course. Greens in great shape. Back nine had some terrific risk/reward holes.

Solo Jams

I had a blast playing here for the first time. I teed off alone as the second time of the day behind a foursome of members, who promptly let me by once I caught them. The course was in incredible shape and it’s a very appropriate test, with plenty of tee boxes to choose from, and huge greens with multiple pin locations and I noticed a couple of the holes even have separate sets of tee decks. You can tell a lot of time and resources are put into maintaining the course conditions, of which they’re quite proud. There’s a quiet elegance to this place, and you’d hardly notice you’re surrounded by a neighborhood. A lot of well-designed holes make excellent use of a formidable property.

Shoutout to William who was running the carts. I have a hard time believing anyone could have a conversation with him without a few laughs.

Great first 9 then pace went to a halt.

Great course great front 9 played out foursome in 90 minutes then took 3hrs to go back 9. They threw to many groups off 10 there without thought. A great day was diminished by that action.

Slow

Who puts a 5-some in front of a two-some? Yes, 5-some. A course with no marshal or starter does. Gone downhill since I last played it. Save the $100+

Great Course

We were the last morning group. The maintenance crew would cut the tee boxes, fairways, and greens, as well as top dress the greens as we finished each hole. The course was in FANTASTIC shape and was a great layout. Very beautiful. Pace of play was about 4:15, so not bad. Everyone was very friendly (chatted with the grounds crew a few times). Greens are extremely fast (about 12 on the Stimp, we were told). They were fast and true (can you tell I had a good day?). We would definitely play again!

Beautiful property

Played the course a day after a heavy rain. Greens were aerated a week before. That said, great track to play. Lots of hills and water. Course would be a beast with fast greens.
