Hi Francine,

Whispering Pines has the lowest crime rate in the area and they also have their own police department.

I have also heard that Longleaf Country club is also very low in crime

Most of Pinehurst also is very low.

The Pinehurst area is a wonderful place to live and I feel safe here.

It depends, do you have kids? There are great neighborhoods in Southern Pines too that are very safe and good for kids.

Check out the stats here on city data.

Pinehurst crime index is 42

US Average is 320

Lower is better. So, as you can see, crime is almost non existent here.

You lucky thing! My favorite place in all of NC and I don't even play golf.

Check out the Chamber of Commerce when you get to town. Just up the road from Walmart. Very friendly people.

Default Pinehurst Country Club Members

My husband and I are looking at Pinehurst NC. We golf and play tennis and will still be working (late 50s) but will be slowing down.

We have seen a number of different golf communities in the Pinehurst area.

Can someone give me a feel for who belongs to Pinehurst CC and the other divisions/clubs -- 7 Lakes, Whispering Pines, Southern Pines.

If one area more geared toward older, totally retired people?

Thanks

What's great about Pinehurst is MOST areas are safe to live in. I am a Realtor in Pinehurst, and have found that there are so many neighborhoods that are safe and also so many different neighborhoods geared towards certain lifesyles, that there is a little bit of everything for anyone moving here. Let me know if you need some more details.

There are areas geared more towards retired people, and then there are areas with a semi-retired feel to it. It all depends on what you are looking for. I am a Realtor in the area and have found that many of the different courses have amenities that will appeal to younger families, and others that definitely appeal to the retired crowd. Let me know if you would like some more information on them.

The whole "Sandhills" area (Southern Pines, Pinehurst, Aberdeen, Seven Lakes, Whispering Pines, etc) is VERY geared toward retired folks--affluent retired folks specifically, and it's a great idea if you love golf because that is the "religion" there.

Joining Pinehurst Country Club? I know it is very expensive; my dad and his wife used to belong because she had joined with her first husband, but now they are just "social" members and I think may be dropping that, too. I don't know what kind of "rigamarole" you have to go through to become a member.

My dad lives in Seven Lakes, which has a nice small golf course and a very hometown feel (we had a house there since the early 80s, which he remodeled and retired to full-time with my mother. Now he's on his second wife but they still love 7L). Bear in mind that all of the communities interact and wherever you live, you will visit Southern Pines, Aberdeen, etc all the time to go shopping, and likely do a lot in Pinehurst since a lot of cultural things go through there and the hotel is beautiful at the Holidays, etc.

So, I don't think it would make a huge difference where you lived because you'd be going to all of the little towns all the time.
