The Country Club of Whispering Pines is located among the pines in the heart of the sand hills in North Carolina's and just minutes from Pinehurst. The property that is The Country Club of Whispering Pines has a unique feature…diversity. The East course and its' length combined with the subtle terrain changes, gives "Golf Courses of The Sandhills" another gem in their arsenal of great designs. The East course will make you hit every club in your bag, and if you wish to try it from the back tees, its impressive length has not been affected even by the new equipment changes. On the other hand, the West Course will remind you of a "northeastern country club" with the elevation changes, towering oak trees that line the fairways and overhanging greens. Tranquil lakes and streams meander and frame most of the back nine. The West is not as demanding as the East, but requires some "shot making" in order for a golfer to brag upon completion. Smaller greens and less playable rough make tee shots a premium. The legendary Ellis Maples, a Donald Ross prodigy, designed both courses but had the ability and talent to create multiple themes on one property.
