Mid South boasts ideal conditions & lots of hills

Posted May 3, 2013

Course: Mid South is the partner course of Talamore in Southern Pines. At first glance you say wow! Beautifully adorned and manicured, with a lot of hills.

Play: Not sure if you can walk or not. My advice: don’t. The course conditions were ideal. Brush up on your sand play. There are bunkers everywhere you look. I thought after the round, it would have been nice to have played this course before, to learn the nuances. Or, at least, have hole diagrams so first timers can learn at the go. All in all, one of the nicest courses I’ve played in the Sandhills.

Worth Noting: There is also a lot of trouble on this golf course. Although, my instructor would tell me not to dwell on the negative. So, I’ll couch it by saying there is a lot of green fairway on this course with a lot of risk-reward holes. Not so much on No. 10 though. It’s very narrow. You should also say a prayer before your tee shot on No. 15, the last par-5. It’s very narrow and long.

    I have played this one at least 6 times. It's not easy. Not one of my favorite in the County. Still. They have loads playing this one.
