Living it up in Whispering Pines

 

In Whispering Pines, we believe a true community shouldn't be gated or fenced in – it should seamlessly meld into its surroundings.

 
 
 

Life in Whispering Pines

From the moment you enter the Village of Whispering Pines, you know that you have come to a special place....

Three 18 hole golf courses and eight lakes offer numerous golf and water front home lots, providing open spaces with their special beauty and as well as options to enjoy rounds of golf and boating, swimming and picnic outings.

The Village of Whispering Pines was founded in 1959 and was the first to be incorporated in North Carolina by an act of the N.C. General Assembly in 1969. Residents come from all over the United States, but they all share a desire to preserve the quiet, tranquil Village environment for which it is known. Primarily a retirement community for many years, the last 10 years have has seen an influx of younger families who have found the Village a perfect place to raise their children given its excellent public and private schools, an extremely safe environment, and a caring community.  The population now exceeds 2000, and growth continues with several new subdivisions offering new home options for larger families.

The Country Club of Whispering Pines boasts two championship golf courses, a beautiful clubhouse with dining rooms, bar and a pro shop, tennis courts, an Olympic size swimming pool, and a work-out room. Membership is optional for property owners. The Whispering Woods Golf Club provides another 18-hole course, and its casual dining room is a mecca for local residents for both lunch and dinner and brunch on Sundays.

The popular towns of Southern Pines and Pinehurst are within a fifteen minute drive, providing excellent restaurant options, modern shopping plazas, and small quaint specialty shops. The renowned nearby Sandhills Community College offers degree academic programs as well as a wide variety of continuing education classes, lectures, concerts and exhibits, and boasts one of the most popular horticultural gardens in the state.
