Talamore Golf Resort

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1991

Talamore Golf Resort: Talamore is one of the classic golf courses of Pinehurst. Its two nine-hole loops contain many attractive golf holes, laid out in a quiet and natural setting where pine trees provide the main backdrop to Rees Jones' excellent design.

From start to finish the holes pleasantly meander their way through much unspoilt pine forest, with real estate largely kept a reasonable distance behind the holes and much less evident on the back-nine. Lining the usually good-width fairways is an array of attractive moguls (earthmounding), together with copious and at times visually intimidating bunkering and mature pines.

Only at the par-4 18th does water come into play, requiring your tee shot to carry a good-sized pond. But don't think the absence of water makes this course any less challenging. This is an excellent layout, which will test both your shot-making and course management.

The well-paced and sometimes elevated greens are not overly large (with a few exceptions) but are excellent surfaces to putt on, and home to many slopes and borrows. Since opening in 1991, Talamore's pleasantly wooded charms, gentle undulations and handsome design has made it a popular venue for local and visiting golfers alike.

Did you know?

Talamore is a Gaelic word meaning "land of great value", and the Talamore Golf Resort is well positioned to provide that, with its sister course, Mid South, and all the other Pinehurst golf courses within close proximity.

Uniquely in this part of the world (and perhaps the northern hemisphere), you can hire the services of a llama to caddie your clubs around the course. If, like most players, you don't opt for this service, you can at least take a look at these natives of South America alongside the 14th tee.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Prince's Golf Club, Kent (UK)

Here at Prince’s Golf Club you'll find 27 excellent holes of links golf.

The three nine-hole loops at Prince's, laid out over gently undulating terrain, are sure to bring a smile of satisfaction to all lovers of links golf.

Stay&Play at Prince's: excellent onsite Lodge accommodation available
