Practice Facilities


Donald Ross invented the driving range, changing forever the way the game was practiced and taught. Dubbed “Maniac Hill,” Pinehurst’s great practice area is, as Tommy Armour put it 70 years ago, “…to golf what Kitty Hawk is to flying.”

Portions of our expansive short-game practice area are currently undergoing a renovation during the summer and are expected to be completed in the fall. Golfers can still enjoy the opportunity to work on every level of the short game, from putting and chipping to pitch shots and bunker play.
