Course No. 8
Tom Fazio, 1996
No. 8 opened in 1996 to commemorate Pinehurst's Centennial. Fazio incorporated signature Ross features into the design of No. 8, including dips and swales around the greens, sloping greens and false fronts. The combination of beautiful rolling terrain, natural wetlands and proximity of the greens to subsequent tees make No. 8 a pleasure to walk. As the site of the PGA Club Pro Championship in 1997 and 1998, it is a proven championship course that daunts and delights all who play it.
