"The National property is absolutely beautiful. Its rolling hills, magnificent pines and variety of lakes provided us with elements we needed to design a golf course that would be extra special. The idea has been to preserve and build upon the great golfing tradition which is the Sandhills." - Jack Nicklaus
Legendary in his golf achievements and golf course designs alike, Jack Nicklaus constructed a masterpiece set amidst the long leaf pines of Southern Pines. This 18-hole championship layout features classic Jack Nicklaus architecture: wide fairways, lush course conditions and undulating putting surfaces that test your mind and your true golfing ability.
National's golf course is a magnificent 7,144 yard course and is meticulously designed as it is compelling. An intriguingly well balanced course which, according to Golf Digest, "has come to enhance even the lofty Sandhills image for world-class golf amenities."
Each hole has been customized to create a great diversity in the way it can be played. Added to this uniqueness are tall pines, grassy swales, groomed waste areas and a natural variety of lakes and stream beds beautifully fashioned to give National its own distinctive look.
