Tobacco Road Golf Course
Must See and Play
As part of a visit/ play trip to Pinehurst, we added this club into an additional play date. Tobacco Road was truly enjoyable. First, the club personnel were gracious, genuinely friendly and very helpful with their recommendations. The whole golf experience required attention to recommended sight/ target lines with yardages attached. If you can overcome the sheer beauty and, yes, a few blind shots, the course is stout however rewards smart shot making. The penal part of the course is well known however the scorecard clearly indicates the preferred approach based on your skill level. Fairways were generous based on carry. Greens were of fairly large, average pace, and depending on pin placement, few had undulations that required skill and feel to appropriately navigate. We enjoyed the layout so much, played 36 today.

Unusual, but challenging must play in Sandhills area
Having played this course about a dozen times our group has grown to love it ( except Terry). Playing it for the first time was difficult with blind shots and left us shaking our heads sometimes, but once the round ended we remarked how enjoyable the course was. We play it every time we are in NC and would not miss it. Don't let the yardage fool you , you will use every club in your bag. It starts with the opening tee shot right to the final approach at 18, this course will keep you thinking. Definitely a must play !

What a Gem
Tobacco Road should be on everyone's bucket list. Although, you may want to make sure you bring some extra golf balls. This course is carved through the dunes and even presents quite the challenge for experienced golfers.
