  • SHOULD I TAKE A CART OR CADDIE?

    We believe that caddies and forecaddies have the greatest impact on the golf experience. They help you with shot selection, read greens, provide local knowledge and lore, rake bunkers, clean golf balls, and generally make sure your Pinehurst golf experience is one you won’t forget. We highly encourage guests to utilize a caddie on Pinehurst No. 2 and No. 4 as they are cart path only. Many golfers enjoy forecaddies on other Pinehurst courses, allowing them to ride in a cart still enjoying the normal caddie services.

    Caddie fees are paid upon registration at the golf shop. Rates are as follows:
    Double Bag Caddie: $80 per player
    Forecaddie: $40 per player
    (We recommend a $60 gratuity per bag for walking caddies and $35 per bag for forecaddies.)

    In an effort to promote pace of play as well as the safety and health of our caddies, golfers should travel with a single strap carry bag weighing less than 24 pounds. If your bag does not meet these requirements, you may be asked to use a provided change-out bag.

    Please keep in mind that carts are restricted to paths on course No. 2 and No. 4. Carts are allowed to ride the fairways of all other courses.

    Push carts are available at all courses. Push carts are available on a first come first serve basis at each golf course.
