Seven Lakes is a census-designated place (CDP) in Moore County, North Carolina. It is located about 10–15 minutes away from the Pinehurst #2, where three different U.S. Opens have occurred, in 1999, 2005, and 2014. As of the 2000 census, the CDP population was 3,214.


Seven Lakes does not actually have seven lakes. It is said[by whom?] that there are around ten lakes in the immediate area.[citation needed]

Many people in the area use the lakes for activities such as swimming and many different boating activities.


There are three separately gated sections that comprise Seven Lakes and share some amenities. The North side has eight or nine smaller lakes, the largest of which are Lake Sequoia and Lake Echo. Both of these lakes allow the use of boats with gasoline-fuelled engines, but the smaller lakes restrict use to boats with electric engines or only human-powered boats. Use of the lakes and other amenities, however, is restricted to local residents and their guests. Guest cards may be purchased annually for a nominal fee by landowners. Amenities located in the North side include a community swimming pool, tennis courts, and a stable/horseback riding area. The Seven Lakes Country Club and Golf Course is located on the South side. The West side is the newest and generally the most expensive of the three areas. It has Beacon Ridge Country Club within its gates. It also has Lake Auman, the largest of all of the seven Lakes.
