Talamore Golf Resort
Southern Pines, USA
Talamore Golf Resort Overview
Talamore Golf Resort is a golfer’s dream with the villas each offering well-appointed 2 and 3-bedroom accommodations. Enjoy spectacular views of the nearby Reservoir Park as well as the Rees Jones-designed The New Course at Talamore. It’s not just the golf to enjoy here – there is a new open-air garden BBQ pavilion to enjoy an outdoor pool. Alternatively, stay 2 miles down the road at Talamore’s sister property, The Lodges at Mid-South. Enjoy the luxury of high-end condominiums, each with stunning views of the Mid-South golf course. The New Course at Talamore and the Mid-South course are two of the finest in the Sandhills region of North Carolina.
Golf courses at Talamore Golf Resort
Designed by Rees Jones in 1991, The New Course at Talamore is a fine example of the golf on offer in the Sandhills area; towering pines, wetlands, lakes, and wastelands, plus elevation changes of over 150 feet. Following a rejuvenation process in 2016, greens were restored to their original size, and Champion bermudagrass was introduced, bringing Talamore’s putting surfaces in line with some of the best in the area. Fairways were widened and 12 sod wall bunkers reminiscent of those in Scotland were added.
Arnold Palmer designed the course at Mid-South Club in 1993 and it is one of his finest. Recent work in 2017 saw all the greens converted to Champion bermudagrass, making them as good as any in the area. The course works its way through the towering pines, wetlands, numerous lakes, and significant elevation changes throughout the 18-holes. They like to do things ‘big’ at Mid-South – big greens, big fairways, big bunkers, and even big rocks like those sat in front of the 9th and 18th greens.

Did you know?
When Talamore Resort opened back in 1991, it featured something more unique than the Rees Jones golf – llama Caddies! The llamas quite literally put Talamore on the map, with over 5,000 articles written about them all over the world. Right now, the llamas are a thing of the past, however, there has been talk that they may return one day.
Signature Holes at Talamore Golf Resort
The 16th at Talamore is one of the toughest. A long par-4 that plays uphill all the way and guarded by the thick pine forests all the way. A deep pot bunker just left of the green has to be avoided if you are to get through this hole with a par.
The par-4 16th is often favored as the signature hole at Mid-South, with water coming into play, and with the approach shot, it is one of the visually most appealing on the course. The finishing holes on both 9s (the 9th and 18th) are also very unique in that they share a double-green.

Palmer designed the course at Mid-South Club in 1993 and it is one of his finest. Recent work in 2017 saw all the greens converted to Champion bermuda grass, making them as good as any in the area. The course works its way through the towering pines. Wetlands, numerous lakes, and significant elevation changes are encountered throughout the 18-holes. They do things ‘big’ at Mid-South – big greens, big fairways, big bunkers, and even big rocks like those sat in front of the 9th and 18th greens.
