In 2014 Men's and Women's US OPENS are scheduled back-to-back for the first time in history. We are receiving an increasing number of 2014 US OPEN inquiries from volunteers and spectators. Our condo is listed with a realtor. Rate is significantly above our regular weekly rate. By August or September, 2013 we should know whether we will want to rent our condo through vrbo or not. If we do, we will contact people who have inquired and see if we can work out an appropriate rate. We would be particularly interested in splitting the time in some manner during the US OPEN so we too can enjoy our condo and its magnificent location as one of the closest rentals to the entrance gate.
We can arrange a limited number of daily guest passes which will allow dining in the Members Club, use of tennis and croquet courts, 3 outdoor pools and marina (sand beach, boat and canoe rentals). Sunday's Fairway Breakfast across Highway 5 at the Members' Club (about $13 including tax and tip) has become very popular with our guests. We enjoy helping you figure out just which of Pinehurst's many joys fit your schedule and will make you want to come back. As our guest you can play six Pinehurst courses, including Course No. 2, at unaccompanied guest rates. Guest greens fees on Pinehurst resort courses are reduced by one half 3 to 4 hours before dusk. Depending on date, owner may be able to accompany guests, which results in lower greens fees.
There are many really outstanding courses within a 20 mile radius. Our favorites are Tobacco Road, Anderson Creek, Talamore, Little River, Legacy. Information and special offers for all Pinehurst area golf courses are available. Other interesting local attractions are the world famous pottery district which begins about 15 miles west of Pinehurst. The Sandhills Horticultural Gardens are about 10 minutes away, Cameron antique district about 20 minutes. The Pinehurst Harness Track is across the street with it's endearing Track Restaurant.
Our mid-century modern condo gives new meaning to Pinehurst’s “casual elegance”. Low-slung Barcelona chairs, Italian arc lamp, New York and California themed prints, designer dining chairs, textural Mexican tile floors, capiz shell placemats, plantation shuttered windows, Amish quilt, glass, chrome, and oriental rugs all take you back to the era of modern elegance before our condos were built. Be at home with your history! If you want to live a little 'green' while on vacation, we make it easy. You'll find a recycling bin, you may choose cloth towels instead of paper if you wish, cloth napkins are on the table, a recycled grocery bag may be in the wastecan, and kitchen boasts service for 10 so your dishwasher will be fuller before use. High speed wireless internet access for your laptop. TV and DVD in bedroom and living room. Rear porch overlooks 18th fairway and green of Course No. 5.
On your way to Florida and need a break from I-95? Pinehurst is a quiet oasis about half way between NY and Florida. You can get off I-95 at NC Exit 138 and follow US64 around Raleigh to US1 and on to Pinehurst (about 2 hrs. total). It is about an hour from Pinehurst to I-95 at the NC/SC border, then about 6 hours to Jacksonville, FL. Get in a morning round of golf in the Pinehurst area before heading off to Florida. Using the airports in Southern Pines (15 minutes) or Raleigh (about 1 1/2 hours) are, of course, also options. North Myrtle Beach is about 2 hours and 15 minutes to the south. Plenty of shopping in Myrtle Beach and the ocean is warm enough for swimming from mid May through the end of September. You could continue your golf vacation in Myrtle, too. Guests have also visited enroute to/from Hilton Head and Outer Banks. Weddings, football games, and family reunions (in addtion to golf, of course) have all brought people to our Pinehurst condo. We have many repeat guests.
Apartment sized waher and dryer have been recently added. Other full sized appliances, hair dryer, iron, linens, towels, cooking and eating utensils provided. No pets or outdoor cooking. Smoking outside. Pickup trucks and recreational vehicles are not permitted (parking for these vehicles is available at parking lot before entering complex). This serenity is especially for you.
After honeymooning in Pinehurst more than 40 years ago, we're back. We are looking forward to sharing the quiet, casual, elegance with you--both our condo and resort membership privileges.
Nearing retirement, during most of the 1990's, we had a big house about 3 fairways away from our current condo. Walking through the back Camellia bushes onto the golf courses became 'the field of dreams'. Homeexchanges allowed us to share that home and live as a resident in other interesting places. However, we decided to move our 'big house' to near Philadelphia where we visit with our young grandchildren. Missing our Pinehurst membership, we bought our 1 bedroom condo from a New Jersey architect - regaining our 'Camelot'. Since 1986 we also have had a small townhouse in Sanford, NC--just 30 miles up the road.
One of our favorite activiities is watching golfers finish their round on #2--sometimes even in pouring rain--while we enjoy a beverage on the covered Member's Club veranda. A new discovery of ours is the outdoor hot tub at the Carolina Hotel which is available to members and their guests according to schedules established by Pinehurst Resort. If we are not around when you visit we usually arrange to have someone from Homeminders of Pinehurst meet you. Sometimes, when between guests, we stay at our Pinehurst home and enjoy the serenity, too.
