Course Review and Comments
I stumbled upon this course whilst visiting from Durham, England and what a discovery.
I have played golf all over the world and on some great named courses but this one takes the biscuit, what a shame Mike Strantz didn’t live long enough to enjoy and receive the accolades he fully deserves for this masterpeice which is carved out of a disused sand quarry.
I would concur with a previous reviewer it is not the hardest course to play but you have to think your way around it, there is not one good hole on the course.............They are all exceptional.
Believe me when I say if I lived in the area I would play this course every day and not become tired of its layout, condition, facilities and staff, my only disappointment was I tried to play it again when I was over last October 2008 and could not get a date to suit my itinerary.
I would not recommend this course to anyone; I want to keep visitors down to a minimum so I can get on.

This was my first time at the Road. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys golf course architecture. It was visually stunning and quite challening to play.

I have played this course 4 times now and LOVE it. It's funky and different but still one of my top 5 favorite courses and I have played lots of different places. Some women might not enjoy the blind

Three of us flew in to visit my brother in Durham. Took an hour trip to your course and overall experience, a great time! The 90 degree rule made our round lengthier than we had hoped. If we do mak

By far my best experience on my trip to Pinehurst/Sandhills was the Road. A local fella that was paired up with us defined it aptly...it is like a golf amusement park. It is challenging and fun...comp

I always look forward to playing Tabacco Road when I am the Pinehurst area. I have played virtually all the courses in the Sandhills area including the Pinehurst resort. To me Tobacco Road is not onl

A short course with virtually no rough? How tough can it be? The answer is very tough and very enjoyable. Tobacco Road challenges your ability to think around a golf course, no matter your handicap

We thought Tobacco Road was amazing, challenging, and fun. Now we have to play the other Strantz courses!
