Experience the magic of truly classic golf at The Carolina, a spectacular golf course designed by Arnold Palmer and the Palmer Course Design Company. Conveniently located on Airport Road, just minutes from Midland Road and the Village of Village of Pinehurst, The Carolina opened to rave reviews in 1997 and has since won many awards.
The Carolina features eighteen holes of finely crafted tradition. Its design is woven into the fabric of the area’s native sandy soil, longleaf pines and natural habitat, creating an exciting, golf experience for players of all skill levels. Dramatic elevation changes of over 100 feet produce a dynamic, cascading landscape. Preserved natural wetlands meander through this picturesque setting, offering majestic green sites and breathtaking views. Skillfully created, undulating fairways and greens complete the challenge, one unlike any other.
Proclaimed by many golfers as one of “Arnie’s” best designs, The Carolina is affectionately referred to by locals as “Beauty and the Beast”, with some of the most breath-taking, beautiful holes found anywhere, but beware, the “Beast” is lurking in many of the natural wetlands guarding The Carolina’s smooth, undulating greens. You may want to bring your camera to record this naturally beautiful golf venue, but beware, as beautiful as it is, “The Beast” is lurking.
