As with most of the developed communities around Pinehurst, Pinewild has a lot of retirees who live there for the golf. There are some famalies with children by they are in the minority.
Pinewild was recently annexed by Pinehurst and according to some residents taxes went up by about $1,000.
We live a short drive from Pinewild at another golf course community and there are almost no children in the neighborhood.

Take a drive through Pinewild on the weekend and see how many kids you see at the pool or playground.

I would suggest looking at Southern Pines or one of the non development areas.

I agree 100% with PDD. Most of the golf course communities don't have many children living there. Well, some of the members act like children, but that's another story.

I think I have said this before somewhere, but there are some areas with slightly more kids than others, but none that I know of with the density of children to expect impromptu stickball games out in the street.

I'll admit I'm a bit biased being from Southern Pines, but I'd say it is the most "family friendly" community. I was raised here and have lived elsewhere, but I chose to raise a family here. For sure many families live in Pinehurst or Whispering Pines for various reasons (often "not knowing any better" when moving there) but Southern Pines and its many parks serve as their real downtown. You can probably Google or search the local paper's (The Pilot) website to read about how grumpy retirees feel about children, parks, school funding, etc. They're (the grumpy ones) usually from Pinehurst or Whispering Pines and they are the ones who run things.
