Pinewild Country Club

Pinewild Country Club of Pinehurst boasts forty eight holes of golf, four Har-Tru tennis courts, and a gracious swimming complex. The two championship golf courses, namely the Magnolia and the Holly are both stunning, and challenging to golfers of all skill levels.

The Magnolia, a 'traditional masterpiece', was designed by Gene Hamm, and has played host to the PGA Tour Qualifying School, the LPGA’s Pinewild Championship in 1995, as well US Open Qualifying.

The Holly, a Gary Player Signature Course, is fast becoming an area favorite, due to its panoramic beauty, 'risk reward' layout, and some of the best greens in the Sandhills. The Holly has played host to many USGA Qualifying events, as well as Carolinas PGA Championships. Whatever your choice of course, you are sure to enjoy the Bermuda grass blanketing the fairways, and velvet bent grass greens.

The Azalea course is a nine-hole par 3 course, which includes some of the more scenic holes on property. The remaining holes consist of three practice holes, which make up part of the world-class practice facility. Included in the practice facility are two large putting greens, a chipping green, a short-game complex and a magnificent range with greenside and fairway bunkers.
