About Us

Longleaf Golf & Country Club is an 18-hole Dan Maples designed course that offers every golfer an exceptional experience. Located off historic Midland Road in Southern Pines, Longleaf Golf & Country Club has been called the ‘most playable course in the Sandhills’ by Ron Witten of Golf Digest.

Third generation golf course architect Dan Maples, creator of the Award Winning Pit Golf Links, brings his talent back home to Southern Pines with Longleaf Golf & Country Club.

Built on the site of one of the Village of Pinehurst’s former horse training estates, Longleaf shines with Dan’s love of tradition. Many of the original features — the white fences, rail post and hedgerows — have been carefully retained as a tribute to the original site.
