Integrity adds North Carolina course


Orlando, Fla.-based golf management company Integrity Golf Company has added Tot Hill Farm Golf Club to its portfolio of managed courses. Effective July 1, Integrity Golf will now oversee all golf operations of the North Carolina course, which is located between two golf hubs: Pinehurst and Greensboro. 

“Though they’re a young company, [Integrity Golf seems] to be aggressively growing with a wide range of both owned and managed courses,” Co-owner CC Pharr said in a news release, whose Tot Hill Farm LLC investment group developed the course in 2000.

The upscale daily-fee property is located less than 30 minutes from Forest Oaks Country Club, another Integrity-managed property. Tot Hill Farm features a par-72, 6,543-yard course designed by the late Mike Strantz. It has received several accolades including a 4.5 star rating in Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play list and was noted for being the seventh hardest course in America by Golf Digest in 2007.

Surrounded by the Uwharrie National Forest and Uwharrie Mountains, most of the course is located throughout the Uwharrie wilderness, with the last few holes of each nine opening up into the rolling hills of a real-life country farm complete with a 200-year-old farm house.

“Tot Hill might be one of the newer courses but it’s really become a favorite of local golfers and avid golfers who travel to this Pinehurst market,” Integrity President/CEO Gene Garrote said in a news release. “This is a hidden gem, but it won’t be hidden much longer. CC Pharr and his group have been really dedicated to the overall success of this property and we look forward to taking it to the next level.”

Integrity Golf is one of the top 25 largest management companies in the world, coming in at No. 18 in Golf Inc. Magazine’s 2015 ranking. With the addition of Tot Hill Farm Golf Club, Integrity Golf now manages 36.5 18-hole courses at 32 private, daily fee, resort and municipal facilities in six states including Florida, Tennessee, New York, Kentucky, South Carolina and North Carolina.
