Talamore Golf Resort, located at the “Home of Golf”, Pinehurst, North Carolina, has earned a TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence” for 2018. Since 2011, TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence has honored hospitality businesses that deliver consistently great service across the world. This designation is presented to approximately 10% of the total businesses on TripAdvisor that have achieved great reviews from guests over the past year.
“We strive everyday to provide a memorable guest experience at all touch points across the resort,” says Matt Hausser, Talamore Golf Resort’s General Manager. “It is rewarding that so many take note and share their positive experiences at Talamore on TripAdvisor.”
In February of this year, the Village of PInehurst Area Chapter of the National Golf Course Owners Association(NGCOA) named the Rees Jones designed New Course at Talamore Golf Resort the “Course of the Year 2018.” The prestigious award comes after a major restoration was done to the golf course in 2016.
Not to be outdone, Talamore’s partner property across Midland Road, the Arnold Palmer designed King’s Course at Mid South, underwent a similar golf course restoration and greens conversion along with numerous enhancements.
In all, these projects are among $6 million in capital improvements at Talamore’s four North Carolina and Pennsylvania facilities. Talamore and Applecross Country Clubs are located outside of Philadelphia in southeastern Pennsylvania.
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 Tar Heel 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 had a clubhouse overhaul 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 on the golf courses 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 adults’ 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.
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.
Talamore members also enjoy privileges at the two highly renowned clubs in Pennsylvania designed by the Nicklaus group. Championship golf, exceptional private club dining, pools, fitness and great local accommodations make Talamore’s pair of Keystone State clubs a fun experience for everyone.
