Sure, golf is one of the main drivers (see what I did there?) of tourism for the Sandhills area, but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a whole lot more to offer.  The area continues to grow thanks to young families seeking a small town vibe with plenty of options in entertainment and dining.  That means you get more options on your golf trips.

Finding a spot to eat, grab a beer, or catch a game while you are in town might seem difficult, especially if you’re a large group of golfers.  Rest assured, we’ve done the research for you and found the best places for your entire golf group to get a bite and hang out off the course.

Lunch With a View

The DueceThe Duece – Offering a relaxed vibe overlooking the historic Pinehurst No. 2 18th hole, The Duece serves up lunch daily until 3pm and features craft beers and a variety of cocktails.  Our favorite eats are the Pimento Cheese and Hummus app and the Pulled BBQ Pork Shoulder Sliders.


Grab a Beer and a Bite

Soutso pines brewhern Pines Brewing Co. – This is an overall top pick, so if you’re looking for just one place while you’re here, make the Southern Pines Brewery it.  Food trucks, beer, and a fun atmosphere make it an awesome place for a golf group.  The brewery is open Monday-Saturday from 12pm-10pm, and there seems to always be something exciting going on.

Catch the GameHT

Hickory Tavern and Kickback Jacks – It’s a tie between these two for getting grub and catching the game.  Both are equipped with more TVs than necessary, so you won’t miss any action.  We recommend trying the wings at both places, but Kickback Jacks’ menu has a tad more variety if you’re looking to please more palates.

Live Music and Late Nightsdugans

Dugan’s Pub – A Pinehurst staple since, well, forever.  Dugan’s is an Irish pub featuring live entertainment, karaoke, pool, and more.  You can’t go wrong if you want some top-notch food and fun.  The Fish and Chips is our favorite entree.


beefeaters prime ribBeefeaters – Want a good steak?  You got it.  Beefeaters also boasts a huge salad bar and quite a full menu (even Fried Frog Legs).  We recommend the Prime Rib, but whatever your preferred cut of meat, it’s sure to be good.  Let us know if you’d like us to add a Beefeaters dinner to your package.  It’ll take all the guesswork out of dinner for you!

If none of the above hit the spot, let us know and we will hook you up.  We are always checking out the newest spots and frequenting old favorites to make sure our golf groups get the best of the Sandhills during their visits.
