(Village of Pinehurst, NC) — Talamore Golf Resort has earned a TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence” for 2018.
“We strive everyday to provide a memorable golf experience at all touch points across the resort,” said Matt Hausser, Talamore Golf Resort’s General Manager. “It is rewarding that so many take note and share their positive experiences on TripAdvisor.”
In February, the Village of Pinehurst Area Chapter of the National Golf Course Owners Association (NGCOA) named the New Course at Talamore Golf Resort the “Course of the Year 2018.”
The prestigious award comes after a major restoration was performed on the golf course in 2016.
Not to be outdone, Talamore’s partner property across the street, the Arnold Palmer-designed King’s Course at Mid South, underwent a similar golf course restoration and greens conversion along with numerous other club enhancements.
In all, these projects are among $6 million in capital improvements at Talamore’s four North Carolina and Pennsylvania facilities.
Both courses were also rewarded by the North Carolina Golf Panel with impressive jumps in its prestigious Top 100 for 2018. The King’s Course at Mid South moved up six spots to No. 53 in the state, while The New Course at Talamore catapulted a whopping eight spaces to No. 92. Given that North Carolina has been described as having “50 Top-10 golf courses,” earning high marks is no easy task.
Talamore also received a major clubhouse renovation that included an expanded bar, enclosed rear patio and comfortable seating with a unique new old time, rustic feel.
The King’s Course at Mid South also performed a clubhouse overhaul, along with its course renovation. The back porch was enclosed to include a new bar with indoor and outdoor seating, and big-screen TVs for sporting events. The main floor received a full cosmetic overhaul with new furniture, flooring and a few other special touches to provide a unique and updated feel. Club Members now have a dedicated Kids Area with Playstations, Nintendos, comfortable beanbag chairs and more.
“Our membership has grown in a lot of new directions over the past several years and the clubhouse needed to move with the times,” said Hausser. “Members will be able to visit the club and feel comfortable to enjoy their time while the kids can do their thing.”
A new deck with pergola covered seating, outdoor living spaces with fire-pits geared up for “S’mores Night” are also in store. Upstairs at Mid South is the adult’s only Crow’s Nest, which boasts the finest views and bartending in the area. Comfortable seating indoors and out makes this the ultimate private club hangout out.
Alongside the Palmer and Jones’ centerpieces are a plethora of club amenities including pools at both properties, Jacuzzis, kiddie pool, tennis, basketball and even pickle ball. More than 50 member-only social and golf events adorn an active, year-round calendar at the clubs. Member Guests, Men’s and Ladies Day, the club’s famous Putt-Putt, Casino night, Pumpkin Painting, Guest Chefs, Chili cook off and more provide something for all ages and tastes.
Talamore members also enjoy seamless privileges with Talamore’s two highly renowned clubs in Pennsylvania — Talamore Country Club and Applecross Country Club by the Nicklaus Design group. Championship golf, exceptional private club dining, pools, fitness and great local accommodations make Talamore’s pair of Pennsylvania clubs a unique and fun experience for all members. Members have access to all club events so they can plan their trip around special events at all the Talamore clubs.
