With more than 1,500 kids competing this week at Pinehurst for the U.S. Kids Golf World Championships, what better way to keep them happy (once they get off the golf course) that to treat them to dessert? Parents, we know it’s hot out there this time of year, so here are some of Pinehurst’s best options to keep cool and that sweet tooth satisfied.
We’ve also taken the liberty of listing where you can find each dessert in case, you know, you’d like to spread things around a little bit during your visit.
With so much golf going on around the main clubhouse, let’s start with the Deuce, which offers the resort’s best milkshakes. (And parents, these milkshakes can be spiked, as well.) Flavors include: Salted Caramel Pretzel, Cookies and Cream and Chocolate and Peanut Butter.
The Tavern, located at The Holly Inn, not only offers the quaint ambiance of the Village of Pinehurst, but it also delivers the best sundae at the resort – the Double Chocolate Brownie. Served with vanilla ice cream, topped with caramel and chocolate sauces. Pure delight.
If you want something a little less filling, try to the Blueberry Peach Cobbler, which is served with blueberry ice cream and cinnamon streusel.
Take in the casual elegance of The Carolina Hotel and stop by the Ryder Cup Lounge for what is easily the most dazzling – and lightest – dessert on property, the Mile High Key Lime Pie, served with raspberry coulis, vanilla chantilly, candied macadamia nuts, and seasonal fruit.
Want to step up the elegance? Try to decadent Chocolate Cobbler at The Carolina Dining Room. Decadent chocolate cake atop a warm chocolate sauce, served with vanilla ice cream and tart raspberries
