The New Course at Talamore – Remastered

The goal of the 25th anniversary Remastering Plan was to reimagine the tract through a clever combination of restoration and rejuvenation projects that unlock the course’s hidden potential.  The project was executed by a huge team including course superintendent David Walsh and his staff, and PGA professional and general manager Matt Hausser. Alongside the Resort’s staff were the skilled crews of Shapemasters, a world-class certified Golf Course builder that has worked for many of the major modern era golf course designers including Jack Nicklaus, Rees Jones, Arnold Palmer, Pete and P.B. Dye, Tom Fazio and Greg Norman (www.shapemasters.com).

Original Greens Design Honored through Meticulous Restoration

Greens are being restored to the original Rees Jones 1991 design, resulting in a 20 percent larger putting surface, and the addition of generous 60-inch Tif Eagle Bermuda green collars. The new Champion Bermuda putting surfaces will provide significantly better playing conditions than its bent grass predecessor and will put Talamore’s greens on par with the other top courses in the area that have already made the switch to Bermuda greens – Pinehurst No. 2, No. 8, Country Club of North Carolina, Pine Needles, Mid Pines and Tobacco Road.

Playability and Pace of Play Enhanced

The course feels and is bigger with the fairways opened up, limited rough and the removal of excessive bunkering, with 75% of all bunkers eliminated. Improved cart access and the reshaping of certain areas to help cart flow will increase pace of play by at least 30 minutes per round.

Unique Challenges Introduced At Talamore

“Scotland and the NC Sandhills Collide” with the addition of 12 strategically placed, old-world style sod wall bunkers. Talamore is the only course in the Village of Pinehurst/Southern Pines area with multiple sod wall bunkers and soon to come sod wall bunker cams, providing a live feed of bunker action straight to the Clubhouse for spectator enjoyment.

Make Your Experience Unforgettable with Dollie Llama!

World’s Most Famous Llama Caddies

Llama caddies at Talamore’s Resort CourseTalamore’s Resort Course opened its doors in 1991 with significant press coverage. Yes, the opening of the exciting Rees Jones design was highly anticipated in the Sandhills, but it was the lovable llama caddies that stole the show. Offering llamas as caddies proved to be an instant hit, especially with the press. Over 5,000 articles were written and published all over the globe. Suffice it to say, the Talamore llamas put the club on the international golfing map.

Today, our llama caddies are available for your round throughout the cooler months. Although not required for your round at Talamore, one trip around the links with “Dollie”, “Tallie” or any of our other special friends makes for great memories.
