Feb 06, 2011 No Comments by

Timeless Donald Ross designed masterpieces and perfect golf weather await you in “The Home of American Golf”, and the quaint villages of Southern Pines, and Pinehurst, North Carolina  .

The Avid Sportsman guarantees you a world-class sporting experience on and off the golf courses at Pine Needles and Mid-Pines!  We will customize your daily schedule to include the perfect blend of practice, instruction, recreation and competition to qualify as one of your sporting “Trips of a Lifetime!”

While the Sandhills region of North Carolina boasts over forty golf courses, it has earned its reputation as The Home of American Golf for quality, not just quantity.  Golf aficionados know that Pinehurst No. 2 isn’t the only game in town.  There are several other “must plays” in the immediate area.

The Historic Mid-Pines Inn

It’s just a short drive from Pinehurst to Southern Pines, where 36 more Donald Ross gems continue to shine brightly at Pine Needles and Mid-Pines.  Owned and ably managed by Peggy Kirk Bell and her family of golfers for decades, three recent USGA Women’s Open Championships have been hosted by Pine Needles.  Contestants gave the courses, practice facilities, Lodge and Inn rave reviews, just as the Bell family’s guests have been doing for over fifty years!

The pleasure golfers experience from playing both of these Donald Ross courses is no surprise.  But, first time visitors never expect the expanse or quality of these modern golf practice facilities.

Indoors, a professionally equipped video studio with opening bay doors allows all weather comfort and time efficient video analysis while viewing actual ball flight.

Outdoors, in addition to the weather-proof tee areas at both ends of the range, Pine Needles offers 2 additional teeing areas for practice in all wind directions.  There are 3 short-game areas that each feature bunkers, multi-height roughs for chipping and pitching, and well maintained target greens, 2 large practice putting greens, and to top it off, a 4-hole practice course called “the loop”.

Your golf instruction schedule will be organized around the other planned activities of your stay and focused on your needs.  Want to work only on your full swing?  Finally ready to spend some time on your short game and putting?  Or, need all the help you can get?  Let’s talk about where you are, and where you want to go.  We’ll get you on the path to your goal! The Avid Sportsman and Pine Needles combine for a world-class golf experience.

By the way, how does your game hold-up under pressure?  In addition to golf instructional programs, The Avid Sportsman’s 2011 Pro-Am Championship Series is played from February through November.  Bring two teammates and your favorite professional – or play with one of ours – the choice is yours.

Just let us know, will be traveling alone, or with a group of family, friends or clients?  Are you coming for a weekend, or a week?  Should we add a round or two of sporting clays, or some fishing time?

We’ll arrange all the details.  Call Randy Cavanaugh on 678-982-0511 to start planning your world-class Avid Sportsman experience today!
