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, has been maintained.
On the other hand, the West Course will remind you of a “northeastern country club” with the elevation changes, towering oak tress that line the fairways and overhanging greens. Tranquil lakes and streams meander through 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 with the ability and talent to create multiple themes on one property.
The CCWP theme involves using the open, hardpan rough, sparsely covered with the native pine straw and “love grass”, to create the elements that appealed to the late, great Donald Ross. Therefore, we claim to be the “most natural 36 holes in The Sandhills”, taking our place on the list of the area’s best.
