Your Pinehurst itinerary experts, from left to right: Brooke, Kristen, Alexis, Veronica, Bailey, Abby, Emily and Amanda.

Words cannot describe the feelings that we’re having after a weekend at Pinehurst Resort. Our group of eight came together from different places and in life for a few days of golf, drinks and laughs in the Sandhills of North Carolina, and left the weekend with new friends and incredible memories.

We were part of The Lily Golf Getaway with Pinehurst Resort, in which Fore the Ladies and the resort partnered to welcome 68 women for an event that focused on creating a welcoming atmosphere and was simply a blast. We think Donald Ross would’ve had a great time alongside our crew and we’re already counting down to next year!

Our host and Fore the Ladies founder, Abby has spent quite some time in Pinehurst but she learns something new from each trip. For your next trip to Pinehurst, she recommends:

  • Set your expectations prior to the trip. When I played courses No. 2 and No. 4 for the first time, I just wanted to take it all in and enjoy the walk. Other times, I’m hoping to play well and beat my last score. If this is a trip, I’d go with the first mindset!

  • Bring a blanket if you’re playing in the morning and taking a cart.

  • Speakers for music are welcome!

  • Fashion thoughts: Wear comfortable golf shoes, bring a beanie if you’re playing in the morning in early spring and the pro shop has hand warmers! Plan to wear your outfit the entire day until you go back to shower and change for dinner - therefore, bring all the layers!

  • When in doubt, have the Woodpecker

  • Stay an extra day to spread out the activities and add exploring the village and/or Southern Pines
