As Christmas approaches with each niblick stroke and foozled chip shot, unique gifts ideas for the golfer who has everything may be scarce. No worries, we have a few suggestions.
For the foodie: Dinner at The 1895 Grille
This intimate Four-Star enclave in The Holly Inn offers an experience in taste, atmosphere and service that’s unrivaled.
Try the filet of beef, rubbed with sea salt and truffle oil. It’s nestled alongside a ramekin of macaroni, fontina cheese and morsels of lobster.
Top off the evening by marveling as the wait staff pours molten white Godiva chocolate liqueur from a gooseneck sauceboat into a pillow of chocolate soufflé.
“Savor the moment,” says Thierry Debailleul, the executive chef at Pinehurst. “Dinner at the 1895 will take a little longer. Every morsel is an experience. There is always something happening on your plate.”
