|Personnel||Designed by Arnold Palmer and listed as a #1 East Coast Golf Destination by Golf Digest for 2000, a round at The Carolina will bring you back in time to the traditions of leisure for which Sandhills resorts have been noted for over a century. The classic layout and routing creates many memorable holes on this championship course. Host to state and local amateur tournaments, The Carolina retains some stature as a hidden gem in the Pinehurst area as it lays adjacent to the Moore County airport approximately 3 miles north of Pinehurst Village. A new clubhouse will be built during 2006.
Take a moment to visit the Doug Smith Memorial plaque on the practice range, erected to honor the old club maker and teacher who learned his craft in St. Andrews and taught many golfers at The Carolina.
