The votes have been cast and the winners are known. The National Golf Course Owners Association, Course of the Year Award for the Village of Pinehurst area chapter goes to the Talamore Golf Resort, and the Talamore Golf Club. This award comes just two years after the course underwent a major renovation.
Talamore’s partner located across the street the Mid-South Club designed by Arnold Palmer and now called the King’s Club at Mid-South, has also had a restoration and green conversion project completed in the last couple of years, in all the total work done comes to over 6 million dollars in improvements.
“The greens restoration is nothing short of a watershed event,” says General Manager Matt Hauser. “It’s incredible, all of the greens had shrunk to oval shaped. “We now have fingers and approach area’s that we never knew existed. The opportunity for many unique pin placements is making the courses even more fun and challenging.
At Talamore there was more than just an upgrade on the greens. All through the golf course there was better golf cart access added to the course, with an additonal 75 bunkers removed from the golf course. Talamore has had clubhouse improvements that include an expanded bar, and enclosed rear-area with new comfortable seating, in an atmosphere of of unique rustic old-time feel.
The Kings Course at Mid-South has had some clubhouse work done as well. The back porch was enclosed and a new bar was added with indoor and outdoor seating, and big screen TV’s for sporting events and other major television programming. On the main floor, new furniture was added along with new flooring, to give the facility a newer feel.
Club members can have their children enjoy a “Kids Area”, complete with many things that kids of today enjoy and make up their daily routine.
While there are many golf options in the Pinehurst North Carolina area, the Talamore and Mid South golf resort properties rate among the highest in the area.
