The Resort Course at Talamore Designed by Rees Jones

A Sandhills Golfing Treasure…

Rees Jones Golf Course at Talamore Golf ClubNo ordinary golf course receives the kind of acclaim and international praise that has been given to Talamore’s 18-hole course since its opening in 1991. Talamore has been ranked in the forefront of outstanding courses in the Village of Pinehurst area, an area which has been known for its golfing traditions for more than a century.

Talamore Golf Partners hired architect Rees Jones to bring his considerable talents back to Village of Pinehurst in order to design a course that would be visually striking and exceptionally enjoyable. The result was a 7,020 yard course that was ranked in the top five new courses in America upon its opening in 1992 by Golf Digest.

According to Rees Jones: “This is a position course. Length isn’t going to benefit the long hitter. What I’m trying to do is require thinking.I don’t want to take the drive golfout of the golfer’s hands, but what I want him to have to think about whether he wants to use it. You have to manufacture golf shots and make them happen. Strategy is an important key to a successful round of golf here. My hope is that golfers will enjoy this dimension of the game. Talamore is intended to capture the best of classic golf in the Village of Pinehurst area. The site has a spirit that’s unmistakable: one that allowed for a remarkable diversity of features. There’s a challenge in the course that’s meant to add to the enjoyment of the game. After all, golf is supposed to be fun.”

Talamore was also made famous by instituting the first llama caddy program. Availability is limited to have one of these precious animals escort you around the links. It certainly makes for an unforgettable day.

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.
