1. A “Safari of Golf.”
2. Found only at Pine Needles, a Golfari is a unique adventure that strikes the perfect balance between learning the game, playing the game and relaxing in the company of friends, old and new.

Join a five-day/four-night golf adventure designed for couples and individuals alike. You’ll begin each morning with instruction tailored to your skill level and enjoy afternoon rounds with the foursome of your choosing. You’ll bond with new friends over gourmet meals prepared by our chef, and you’ll have the option to socialize at one of our nightly activities or unwind in the quiet of your cozy guest room.

In addition to improving your game, the main purpose of a Golfari is to have fun. Once you’ve put your clubs down for the day, you can shop in the quaint North Carolina Villages of Southern Pines and Pinehurst, mix and mingle over cocktails, or enjoy a seamless combination of traditional southern gourmet fare, and the genteel southern disposition that puts you at the center of the universe.

You’ll have full access to our fitness center, grass tennis courts, heated pool and whirlpool. Then wrap up your evening in the company of a good book in one of our attractive, yet comfortable guest rooms. It’s all waiting for you at The Lodge at Pine Needles.


Our Golfari instruction staff is simply the best – we have multiple LPGA and PGA Teachers of the Year, many Hall of Fame members, and most importantly, instructors who love to teach. Our main priority is to make your learning experience as rewarding as possible, whether that means hitting the ball further and straighter, mastering those troublesome fairway woods, improving pesky bunker shots, or simply loving the experience of golf.
