The Club at Longleaf- Southern Pines
Third generation golf course architect Dan Maples, creator of the Award Winning Pit Golf Links, brings his talent back home to the Village of Pinehurst with Longleaf Golf & Country Club. Longleaf Golf & Country Club was formerly the site of Starland Farms, for years the training ground of some of the country's top thoroughbreds. As a tribute to its colorful history, Maples incorporated some of the features and flavor of the old facility into the golf course, including part of the fence and training track. The front nine at Longleaf was designed in the Scottish open style with subtly rolling fairways. The back nine, in contrast, is heavily tree-lined with dramatic elevation changes. Ron Whitten of Golf Digest called Longleaf "...the most playable course in Pinehurst."
