Golfweek’s Best deals: Pinehurst No. 2
Monday, November 30, 2009
A course where the rack rate is $410 normally wouldn’t find its way into a column on golf bargains. But Pinehurst No. 2 earned that distinction thanks to the resort’s “Play No. 2 for $222” promotion, which runs through Feb. 25.
For $222, guests can get one round on Donald Ross’ most famous design, ranked No. 14 on Golfweek’s Best Classic Courses list. That price alone might qualify it as one of Golfweek’s Best deals. But Pinehurst is throwing in one night of lodging and the Carolina Dining Room’s fabulous breakfast buffet, arguably the most famous meal in golf this side of the Masters Champions Dinner. The rate is per person, per night, and is based on double occupancy.
In case you’re wondering, the lovely Village of Pinehurst typically has relatively mild winter temperatures in the 50s, and occasionally the 60s.
Hmmm . . . is it too late to change our Christmas plans?
