About The Country Club of Whispering Pines

The Country Club of Whispering Pines falls under the radar of most golfers traveling to Pinehurst. Its 36 holes by Ellis Maples are just minutes from the village. The longer Pines Course is an "inland links", while the River Course requires more accuracy. Guests can stay in condo suites or in a standard hotel-style room with access to a fitness center, tennis courts, outdoor pool and clubhouse with a restaurant and meeting facilities.

Nice place but not aging well

I've played the pines course several times but not in the past year. After the new greens were installed it was in great shape and a pleasure to play. It WAS one of the better deals in the Sandhills.

Not sure what happened but the greens were not cut and didn't look very healthy. Champion Bermuda greens shouldn't be like this especially in the summer. Now the rates were only $25 but this course is better than that.

Great place to play

The staff was great, got us out without an issue, and the course was great considering it’s the end of winter. Greens were in good shape and accepted balls well. I recommend this course.

Don’t play in the winter

Pine Course layout is confusing as it’s not well marked. Bunkers were filled with debris and grass was unkempt and dead.

Good value

Enjoyed the course. Price was fair. Pace of play a little slow, but we were a three-some so expected to wait some. Greens in great condition and fairways very nice. Lunch in the restaurant after the round was very good.
Would go back if in the area.

Course was in good shape. Greens were a bit on the slow side and if rolled would have been awesome.

Good Course but lacking amenities

The pines course was in great shape. The fairways and greens were some of the best I have played this season. But as the heat of the day set in the greens got pretty fast. The biggest complaint is that for a CC with 2 courses there was no real food or drink options, only a mini fridge with some pastries. And that at the turn you are no where near the clubhouse to get anything even if you wanted too.

Great course

The river course was a fun challenge. The greens and fairways were in great shape and it was quick and easy to get a last minute tee-time.

Good Course / Good Value

The Pines course was our "inexpensive" course this year and we generally enjoyed it. Greens were in good shape. Fairways had not totally greened up, but that may be due to the wet winter. We will probably play it again on some future trip

Nice layout but very poor green conditioning

We enjoyed the layout and feel of the River course but the greens were in very poor shape and the lower holes were saturated. If the greens had been better, I could see how the course would merit much better ratings.

Good value for the money

We played the Pines course today and will play the River course tomorrow. The layout was interesting and enjoyable and the pace of play excellent. The course would benefit from some attention but was great value overall.
