Tee Off in Style: Play Amidst Beauty on our Signature Golf Course

Nestled in the heart of the Sandhills and the Pinehurst area, our beloved Ellis Maples Golf Course has undergone a remarkable transformation that pays homage to the natural beauty and rich heritage of this stunning landscape. With careful planning and a deep commitment to preserving the spirit of the Sandhills, we have embarked on a renovation journey that marries tradition with innovation, creating an experience that is nothing short of extraordinary.

The Maples Course, was built by Ed Seay and Ellis Maples in 1971 and is described by many golfers as one of the most challenging and beautiful in the Southeast with lush Bermuda greens and fairways winding gracefully around the lake. From 2021-2023, the Course received a full restoration and redesign of the 18th hole by golf architect Kris Spence.

Woodlake truly provides the perfect setting for the ultimate golf experience. It is located just 20 minutes from the historic village of Pinehurst. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner taking your first swing, the Maples Course provides an unparalleled experience.
 


About the Renovation

GolfPass recently named The Maples Course Renovation among the “25 notable golf course renovations set to be unveiled in 2023”. In our quest to honor the soul of the Sandhills and Pinehurst, we embarked on a journey to bring Ellis Maples Golf Course back to its original glory. This endeavor involved removing overgrowth and trees that had, over the years, encroached upon the natural beauty of our course, obscuring the breathtaking vistas and challenging gameplay that have made us legendary.
