Southern Pines Golf Club
Architect: Donald Ross
Year Built: 1910, Par: 71, Yardage: 6,268 yds
Legendary golf course architect Donald Ross carved 18 of perhaps the most interesting golf holes in the Pinehurst-Sandhills area. A true shotmaker’s golf course, Ross gives players a lot of options. At 6,300 yards, Southern Pines does not measure up to today’s length of courses, but it makes up for it through a variety of shots from the tee and even more challenges on the greens –
a throwback to days gone by, where bump and run shots were the norm and tee shots demanded precision over length.
Ranked #1 in “Hidden Gems Category” for the Village of Pinehurst Area by the North Carolina Golf Panel, no other architect has a larger footprint on the Sandhills than the legendary Donald Ross. In 1906, he opened Southern Pines Golf Club as a 9-hole course, which eventually grew to 36 holes. Today, the remaining 18-holes offer up one of the most unique rounds of golf in the Sandhills. A must play if visiting the Pinehurst, Southern Pines, Aberdeen area! Southern Pines Golf Club is located off of Morganton Road in Southern Pines,approximately 10 minutes from Pinehurst.
