Whispering Pines


Since 1959, golf enthusiasts have enjoyed two of Ellis Maples' finest works. Set in the rolling Sandhills of Pinehurst, North Carolina and surrounded by majestic pines and native grasses, the quality of golf is enhanced by the area's natural beauty. Ellis Maples mastered his craft under the watchful eye of the legendary Donald Ross and soon branched out to create some of top golf courses in the state. The East course, finished in 1962, is an Ellis Maples classic. You can see the Donald Ross influence in the way Maples followed the natural contours of the land, the position of the sand traps and shaping of the greens.

Sandhills, NC Golf Vacations by Golf Zoo

This area's Scottish Heritage and turn of the century villages makes our golf culture come alive. The Sandhills extends to include many other communities also known for its beautiful landscapes and challenging golf. Located halfway between New York and Florida, and halfway between Appalachian Mountain and the Atlantic Ocean, the Sandhills is without a doubt one of the most scenic and enjoyable destinations in the world.

The region's courses are as beautiful as they are challenging. Well-manicured greens meander through stands of stately pines and magnolias and along sparkling lakes. And the region's four distinct, yet mild, seasons permit year-round play.
