We recently played Tot Hill Farm, another Strantz course. It was decent, but nowhere near as unique or interesting as Tobacco Road IMO. Then again, the rates at THF are less than TR, so you get what you pay for. THF is TR-lite, it felt like TR with half the original budget. I’m going back to TR, probably not THF.

Over Memorial Day weekend I finally did my Pinehurst Bucket List Trip, playing both Tot Hill Farm and Tobacco Road, Pinehurst #2, #4, and #8 (and The Cradle, naturally), and the Mid Pines/Pine Needles duo. Tobacco Road was the course that I was looking forward to the most and it did not disappoint one bit... it actually exceeded expectations. I enjoyed it more than anything else on the trip and I had the worst weather of the trip on that day as well. I hope I can make it back.

I've always loved Strantz courses, I've been able to play Royal New Kent and Stonehouse as well as True Blue and Caledonia... though all of those were nearly 20 years ago now.

We played TR in Feb, lucked into a good weather day, but the course didn't look much like the pics above. Greens were surprisingly decent for Feb, but fairways were nothing like the pics above. May go back to TR this Fall when the heat starts to let up.

My pics were from just from a few weeks ago; June 15, 2021.    Outside of some minor stress around the edges of the first green, the course was in great shape.    As usual, I played it twice on my Pinehurst trip.

I've only played the front nine at TR about 10 years ago before getting chased off the course on the last day of our Pinehurst trip.  I remember that:

  • I was getting my ass kicked
  • I really wanted to see the rest of the course

I've played RNK a few times, and it's amazing.  I haven't played it since it reopened, but my girls want to take me there to play it with them.

I've only played Stonehouse once, and I remember having a pretty good round going till the 18th.  The yardage book made it look like the fairway narrowed down significantly at about 250 with rough on the left.  I pulled up to find out that it was a cliff on the left, not rough.  I'd basically hit my tee shot off the planet.  And I'd only missed the fairway by about 10 feet.

I only played it once, and I remember the fairways were pretty wide but, you are correct, you couldn't miss them or else there was trouble.  I really remember thinking on many holes..."ohhhhh, if I would have driven up to look around that mound I would have hit a much different shot".  I had a lot of those moments.  Definitely, want to play there again!   

Let me know if you make it up this way. I just joined there yesterday, couldn’t pass up the course for the price and it being six minutes from my office.

I wanted to play this on my vacation in a couple of weeks, but my wife convinced me to wait until the fall when the weather will be a little cooler. We drove by one day to check it out and it looks amazing.

When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 6.3 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.

Driver: :taylormade-small: R11 9 degree turned 1 degree lower (Bought since it was on sale at Dick's)

Irons: :titelist-small: 990's S300 Stiff shafts bought when I was in college. (Received a personal use discount, otherwise would've stuck with my Hogan Edge's)

3 Wood: :callaway-small: GBB Epic 15 degree (only club newer than 5 years in the bag)

52/56/60 :taylormade-small: Z Spin wedges (heck of a deal $100 for all 3 at Dick's in 2013)

Putter: :odyssey-small: White Hot XG SRT (bought because I won credit for a long drive in 2010)

With all the slopes and blind shots it would be interesting/frustrating/exciting to play that course when it is super dry. That said, we walked it which would be quite difficult in the middle of the summer, methinks.
