State Of The Golf Trip/ Talamore Golf Club

 As of the past trip, the core group of people have expressed some changes to get the whole old gang back together. So I have been looking into the Pinehurst/Sand Hills NC area, as there are about 30 courses there. There are some trade offs, closer to us, brand new courses vs more money, especially if we go in May, a little less night life, but Karaoke, corn hole and poker become more focused on.

Over the next few weeks I will start putting out reviews and information on the courses in the area, and will investigate some of our best options. I am also looking into Ocean City as a destination also, and that will be my next focus.

What Makes Talamore So Very Special...

In 1991, famed golf course architect Rees Jones linked his name forever with the great golf of the North Carolina Sandhills when he debuted Talamore Golf Club. Since receiving the designation as Best New Course in the South by Golf Digest, Talamore has been consistently ranked at the forefront for outstanding courses in the Village of Pinehurst area. Talamore’s clubhouse, pool and cabana are all conveniently located next to the Talamore Golf Villas, which were constructed shortly after the club’s opening. The Talamore Golf Villas have long been a favorite among golfers vacationing in the area for their wonderful amenities and panoramic views of the Resort Course’s signature finishing hole.

The second facility added to the Talamore Golf Resort was the Mid South Club, originally known as Pinehurst Plantation. A private club, Mid South features a fantastic layout designed by “The King” Arnold Palmer. In 2005, the Lodges at Mid South opened, offering the most well-appointed amenities in the Sandhills and giving the Resort over 200 rooms of luxurious and comfortable accommodations, most featuring expansive golf course views.

One Trip And You Become Family...

The Talamore Golf Resort has grown to be the premier golf vacation in the Sandhills. Over 90% of our customers repeat or refer new business. That is unheard of in the resort industry and is a tribute to Talamore’s unwavering commitment to the total customer experience.

A Sandhills Golfing Treasure...

No ordinary golf course receives the kind of acclaim and international praise that has been given to Talamore's 18-hole course since it’s opening in 1991. Talamore has been ranked in the forefront of outstanding courses in the Village of Pinehurst area, an area which has been known for its golfing traditions for more than a century.

Talamore Golf Partners hired architect Rees Jones to bring his considerable talents back to Village of Pinehurst in order to design a course that would be visually striking and exceptionally enjoyable. The result was a 7,020 yard course that was ranked in the top five new courses in America upon its opening in 1992 by Golf Digest.

According to Rees Jones: "This is a position course. Length isn't going to benefit the long hitter. What I'm trying to do is require thinking. I don't want to take the drive golfout of the golfer's hands, but what I want him to have to think about whether he wants to use it. You have to manufacture golf shots and make them happen. Strategy is an important key to a successful round of golf here. My hope is that golfers will enjoy this dimension of the game. 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. Availability is limited to have one of these precious animals escort you around the links. It certainly makes for an unforgettable day.
