We played golf on the Donald Ross courses and stayed at the Inn with the meal plan. The golf courses played well as Ross courses, not too manicured and a lot of waste areas (no bunkers). The rooms were comfortable, if in need of sprucing...More

The greens. Yes, this a Donald Ross "masterpiece". And if your a master golfer you'll love the course and everything about it. If you're a golf enthusiast and love great courses and don't care how hard or unfair the greens are, then you'll love this....More

It is an old style Ross course that has been re-worked a few years back. A lot of waste area instead of rough. Visually impressive. The greens were in great shape but very hard to read. Luckily we played with a member who helped us...More

Really liked the layout, and the greens make the course. I play Bermuda in FL, but I've never seen grain like this. Holes that you seem like you can't hit it hard enough, and others where the ball never stops rolling. Now I know what...More

We stayed across the street at Pineneedles. Had a room in one of the villas close to the Clubhouse. King size bed and about a $100 per night. Well worth it.
