A demanding classic golf course. This Donald Ross masterpiece is a must play. Greens are small so just aim for the middle of the green. Lunch is excellent in a great setting.

Played Mid-Pines and was blown away by the beautiful yet frustrating course. Greens are in fabulous shape. Course is challenging for all levels of players. We played both Mid Pines and Pine Needles and definitely preferred Mid South.

While this course has a long history, it has not been well cared for. It needs maintenance on fairways, teeboxes, and paths. The dirt paths were filled with ruts and not always near tee boxes, i.e. no turnarounds. Signage was poor. Best were the greens...More

I expected so much more - on a Saturday in June one thinks it could be slow but this is ridiculous. The greens were slow, almost as slow as the golfers. A few of the staff were nice but even the clubhouse was old -...More

As a couple with handicaps in the 16 & 28 range, this is a very difficult course. The false fronts, a Donald Ross trademark, are a challenge to play. Any shot hitting the green will likely rocket off into the many sandtraps or at least...More

I have played Mid Pines many times and find it difficult, with challenging greens and needing careful placement both off the tee and on the greens. Having said that, it remains my favorite Donald Ross course in the Sandhills. Pick your tee carefully. A good...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.
