Detailed description of Talamore Golf Resort, Resort Course

Talamore Golf Resort, is a 36 hole golf course facility located in Southern Pines North Carolina. The facility has two 18-hole golf courses, The Resort Course (open to the public) and private The Mid South Course.

Talamore Golf Resort,The Resort Course opened for play in 1991. The course was designed by Rees Jones.

This is a position course. Length isn't going to benefit the long hitter. You have to manufacture golf shots and make them happen. Strategy is an important key to a successful round of golf at The resort Course.

Talamore is intended to capture the best of classic golf in the Village of Pinehurst area. The site has a spirit that's unmistakable: one that allowed for a remarkable diversity of features. There's a challenge in the course that's meant to add to the enjoyment of the game. After all, golf is supposed to be fun."

Talamore was also made famous by instituting the first llama caddy program. The llama's have been retired, too slow, but they are still on property to be seen.

Gold tees: par-71, 6,840 yards

Blue tees: par-71, 6,534 yards

White tees: par-71, 6,025 yards

Red tees: par-71, 4,993 yards

My son and I played here as part of a 4-day trip to Pinehurst. We liked it better than Southern Pines or Mid-Pines, and had as much fun as we did at Tobacco Road. The course has a lot of elevation changes and plenty of sand, but we found it playable and enjoyable. The llama in the shed on the back nine acknowledged us, so we got the whole experience.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level

Great layout on a hilly terrain. Bring some golf shots. Lots of sand traps, challenging greens. Take one club extra, most of the trouble is in front of the greens until you get to the back nine. Then huge roll off on the back, traps on the front. Definitely a great course wortthy of you play.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Our vacationing group played here 2-8-11, in sunny and breezy conditions, with temps in the upper 40's. Paid $39, a real bargain for a course of this quality.

Clubhouse is very nice, staff is friendly and accommodating, with a well-stocked pro shop. From the White tees, the course is 6,025 yards, 68.7/126, but it plays MUCH tougher than that, more like a 136 slope to me. Lots of elevation change, lots of bunkers, a million moguls, some beatiful vistas from the tees. Greens are very large, most undulate, and they putt fast and true. Bunkers are plentiful and deep, but in good shape for this time of year. Fairways are generous, and most have some slope to them, so flat lies are a rarity.

We felt that some of the yardages shown were understated: for example, #5 is a downhill par 3, fronted by a huge full-width deep bunker, listed at 140 yards from the White tees. It actually played more like 155 to the middle. Similarly, #2 is a 164 yard downhill par 3 (also fronted by large bunkers), and it played more like 180. Another niggling issue: several holes were cart-path only, and it was a hike getting to and from the fairways, as they are bounded by a line of moguls. Not a walkable course, especially for us older folks.

Having said all of that, we really liked the course. It's a good test of golf on a well-designed layout that is fully integrated into the terrain. The adjacent houses never come into play, and are not distracting. One final note: we did see two llamas in a paddock in the woods, so the course logo is validated!! We highly recommend!
