Over thirty years ago, Ellis Maples, inspired by a picturesque, rolling track of land in the Village of Pinehurst area, carved out another challenge for golfers in the Sandhills.  His work, the Whispering Woods Golf Club Course, stands as a credit to him and a pleasure for many.  Dan Maples, son of Ellis and renowned golf course architect in his own right, described Whispering Woods this way:  “It is a golf course designed with the average player in mind, but good players won’t find a pushover.  The well groomed condition of the course enhances the design and complements the roll of the land.  Golfers experience left to right, short shots, long shots, uphill and downhill holes.  And the quick champion bermuda greens will keep you honest.”
