If you haven't been to Pinehurst Resort you don't know what you are missing. For golfers there are 9 challenging courses. If you like to play tennis or run or bike Pinehurst has it all. The Spa is second to none. I have been there over twenty times over 25 years and they keep improving without losing its charm. Usually...

We live in Pinehurst and love to go over to the Carolina. The atmosphere is truly majestic with all it's southern charm. The restaurants are great. The Ryder cup lounge is charming. A great pace to visit for golf , tennis , and all else.

This sprawling four story hotel has survived the years when so many of its ilk fell to fire, neglect or financial ruin. Today it is a stunning example of a well managed hotel built around the finest collection of championship golf courses in the United States....

The resort looks great. Big and spacious rooms in the main building. Clean and hospitable. Friendly service. Loved the complementary WiFi throughout the property. Very good food (enjoyed the Thanksgiving special and the morning breakfast). This place is quite famous for golf, but we had a great time at the SPA (truly excellent) and visiting the area. The Christmas decoration...

This was our first visit to the resort. The staff is very attentive and the accommodations are very good. Wish I had more information about how the resort conducts business for example... gratuity included for some and not others would have been nice to know up front. The only thing that disturbed me was the noise that came from our...

There is a reason why The Carolina at the Pinehurst Resort enjoys such high praise - it deserves it! Their customer service is 5 star, all the employees are friendly, helpful, and provide top notch service with a smile. The hotel is like visiting a wealthy aunt in her 100+year old home, the rooms are comfortable, understated and classic. Extra...

Spent 4 nights with friends and enjoyed Pinehurst's True Southern Charm. The guys took advantage of the unbelievable golf courses, while the girls enjoyed the spa and shopping.

Extra nice, old southern charm!! What's not to like?? Certainly if you play Golf, some of the finest golf anywhere in the USA. Very close by are neat shops and good dining. I was there on business and our functions were catered and handled by the hotel. They did a nice job! Highly recommend!
