  nhingtgen - 8/17/16
Excellent golf course with an awesome and very challenging layout. Just played here on 8/12. The greens and fairways were in great shape. You won't finish this course in 4 hours if you can't keep the ball in the fairway! Note: there's a reason that most courses in the Sandhills are cheaper to play in August: It was damn hot!!! My only complaint was that they didn't keep the water coolers on the course filled during the Friday afternoon we played. Also, there was no beverage cart and no ranger with water either.

Bring lots of balls and get a yardage book. Amazing layout with lots of blind shots and elevation changes. You need to think about every shot! Mentally exhausted by end of round. Unlike any course I have ever played. Bring your A game or it will eat you up.
  ScottAyers - 6/22/15
Just a very enjoyable round of golf... the course was in fantastic shape and every hole presented its own individual challenge. You have to stay focused on every swing and trust your yardage app... I'll definitely be back.
  mmarquiz - 10/12/14
A must play when in North Carolina - every hole is a signature hole. Great layout, friendly staff, and a surreal golf experience.
  Kusich - 9/18/14
Fun, but challenging course. It was the first time we played, so the round was quite slow. There were many hidden shots. Looking forward to playing there again.
  ces1349562 - 7/4/14
Has the reputation as being tricked up but as long as you have a yardage and know how far you REALLY hit your clubs, it was a fun challenge. Don't go there thinking you'll shoot your personal best.
  white_rabbitt - 5/14/14
Visually amazing course and great staff. It's a must see/play. If you are striking the ball decently, it's not overly challenging but if you're not, then you are in for a long day!
  R.Barnes - 1/20/14
unreal layout and a VERY challenging course...would love to play again.
  roby9637 - 11/24/13
My favorite course in the Pinehurst area, the more you play it the more you like it. Can be intimidating the first time you play it.
  Chief_Airborne - 7/27/13
Has to be the most challenging course I've every played...had a blast!! Definitely bring your best game!
  mightyquinn82 - 7/25/13
Great challenging course with amazing views, it is always in great shape and never disappoints.
  Preston S - 6/10/13
Its a fun course, but I wouldn't want it to be my home course. Some holes I absolutely loved, some I thought were silly. It was in good shape and would play again.
  jel1011 - 4/30/13
great i loved it
  Doc420 - 4/15/13
Mid March round, fun course, it isn't as hard as it looks. Tot Hill farm is probaby a harder course.
  tmizzi - 10/12/12
very challenging course, but fun to play. will go back again.
  hjoriol - 10/5/12
After a week of great courses played, two rounds per day this was the most challenging course our foursome has ever played. A must play when in this area. Very friendly staff, course in great condition.
  psubender - 9/7/12
One hard course for the average golfer. You need to know your distances for each golf. This is where sky caddie was worth the money. I would hated playing this course without it.

The course is a great test our your skills and you have to look at each hole as a different test and forget about the last one. I would play this course again
  EZrider - 8/13/12
This course is visually intimidating, but use the skycaddie, to locate my targets, I had no real problems, other than a balky putter.
  klausgolf - 4/23/12
Best deal in the Sandhills!
  garycook2 - 4/3/12
Excellent Course that everyone should play once. Great target golf test and if you hit the target you can score. - 3/24/12
I didn't think it was as hard as the other posters. It was visually hard as you can't see fairway or the landing areas on a bunch of holes, but the book shows you where you need to go. I, and the other three in my group all scored below our handicaps. If you know your game and club distances, you can score good on this course. Definitely and must play!! I would go back in a heartbeat.
  bjbuse - 11/7/11
very tough course
go back in a heart beat
  Ross_Benson - 9/24/11
Really Fun Challenging course, this was one I checked off the "bucket list" and will definately be back. Have to play it smart. I shot within 2.5 strokes of my handicap and I'm a 2x/month golfer.
  gunny64 - 9/14/11
I have played this course several times and its always fun and challeging. The greens had just been aerified but still roll great. Will be there again next year.
  Jeff Dawson - 9/5/11
Most Fun and Challenging Course I have ever played
  Chris Sinclair - 6/30/11
Better bring your 'A' game Hitting it sideway at this track adds up in a hurry. Quite a ride, challanging and fun. practice your bunker play, your gonna need it.
  Hasbin - 5/23/11
Many an intimidating hole, especially No. 1, but definitely a must play. Big help to have someone with you that has played it before.
  sh1968 - 5/1/11
Great condition! Friendly staff.
  Swano - 7/21/10
I have played on a couple of well known golf courses (Copperhead, Bethpage Black, Crandon Park) this hands down was the most fun and challenging course I have played. The pace of play was excellent and condition of the course was outstanding. This will be a regular part of my annual trip to the Sand Hills of NC. A true GEM!
  kjmpcc3580 - 5/24/10
One of the most interesting courses you will ever play. Each hole requires you to think and plan your way through. This is all target golf.

Only down side to Tobacco Road is the pace of play. (5 hours or more) If they had carts with GPS this probably wouldn't be as much of a problem.
